Total War: Rome 2 is looking like a swell simulation, a game that will engulf players for hours on end as they learn tactics and overtake checkpoints like a true soldier would. Today, The Creative Assembly revealed a new trailer for the game, one that talks about how important it is to master naval warfare. As you proceed, you’ll strategize to make the most of your attacks, having long distance units strike with arrows while up-close vehicles do damage by ramming.

Total War: Rome 2 launches on September 3 for Windows PC.
