The strategy game experts at PSC Games cooperate with the video game studio Sega. The reason? An adaptation of Total War: Rome. The crowdfunding campaign for the board game is due to start this year. PSC Games is currently aiming for the fourth quarter of 2021.
PSC Games has not yet published much information about the adaptation of the video game Total War: Rome. However, the mere announcement of the board game based on the grandiose tactical game makes you sit up and take notice. Sega published Total War: Rome in 2004, and the title is still one of the genre greats today. The board game is financed via crowdfunding, but should also find its way into retailers next year.
Change of perspective and of course characters
According to the strategy game experts, PSC Games is looking forward to working with Sega and Creative Assembly to implement the brand as a board game. The game is being developed by designer Simon Hall, who previously developed titles such as Caveman and Field of Glory. According to PSC Games, the board game for Total War: Rome is in an "advanced stage", which should be the reason for the surprisingly timely launch window for the crowdfunding campaign. "Simon and our team will be working incredibly hard to crowdfund the game in 2021 and bring it to retail in 2022," said PSC Games.
The board game version should capture the essence of the video game and implement the mechanics of the original in tabletop form. The board game for Total War: Rome will be playable with up to four players as leaders of Rome, Carthage, Greece and Gallo-Germania. The period from 250 BC is historically covered. BC to 50 BC Chr.
The strategic board game can be finished in less than three hours, according to PSC Games. Expansions are planned - they should allow the players to delve deeper into the management of the battles. Also optically, the board game will probably move around the original. The reason for this: PSC Games can use the works of Creative Assemblys Total War: Rome Remastered to create the miniatures.
Will Townshend, owner of PSC Games, states: "I'm a huge fan of Total War: Rome and getting Simon Hall to create a board game version of it seemed like a no-brainer to me".
Townsend has already played the prototype and he is apparently enthusiastic: "It is safe to say that anyone who is a fan of Total War: Rome or the entire Total War series, Wargaming or just this period of ancient history has a will get treats".
Simon Hall, designer and huge Total War: Rome fan, says: “The game is packed with choices for the player, but at the same time it's polished and has simple mechanics. I hope that because of this balance it will be loved by Total War fans, but will also appeal to board gamers and PC gamers alike.”
The Total War series is one of the classics among strategy games. Most recently, the Troy release was published.
