Total War: Rome 2 confirmed for Steam Machines

"We've always wanted the Total War franchise to be enjoyed by living room..."

Imagine playing Total War with this.

Creative Assembly has announced a Steam Machine version of strategy game Total War: Rome 2.

The Steam Machine version will support Valve's new SteamOS and Steam Controller, set for release next year.

"We've always wanted the Total War franchise to be enjoyed by living room gamers, but the limitations of traditional hardware made our style of game play impossible," said Creative Assembly's Rob Bartholomew.

"Last month, when Valve invited us to test out the new Steam Controller and unveiled their plans for SteamOS - we were impressed. We believe it will provide us with the control fidelity and platform we need to make a living room experience for Rome 2 that could be a more compelling experience than playing with keyboard and mouse."

A Linux version of Rome 2 will launch early next year, with full Steam Controller and Big Picture support added as soon as Valve sends The Creative Assembly a controller dev kit.
