While it has been a few days since Total War: Rome 2 came out, quite a few gamers have been complaining that the game seems quite unoptimised and has quite a few hiccups when trying to show a large scale battle. Developer Creative Assembly has announced that it will be releasing a patch for the game on Friday which aims to fix most of these problems, if not all of them.
The company has said in a press release that it plans to release updates for the game on a weekly basis to further improve optimisation with different sets of hardware. The game will automatically download the update when it is out since it uses Steamworks to fetch and manage updates.
The complete notes on the impending patch will be released alongside the update on Friday, but the major aims of the patch are fixing crashes due to hardware conflicts as well as general performance upgrades.
War.. what is it good for?
The game has been out for a couple of days now, and those interested can buy it in one of two ways. You can either grab it off digital distribution platform Steam for a hefty $59.95 price tag (Rs 4,000 approx), or you can get it from retail outlets for Rs 1,499.
Games in the Total War series are split into two parts: a Civilization-esque giant "board game" where players and the AI take turns to do various things like improving cities and states, and a more traditional real-time strategy view where the game's gigantic battles take place.
The newest game in the Total War series takes the action back to the same setting as the third game of the series—ancient Rome. The original Total War: Rome was when many considered the series to have come into its own, despite previous games in the series also receiving critical acclaim.
