It looks like a trailer for a Lifetime mini-series. I don't understand what it has to do with the game. Its focus is completely opposed to that of the Total War games, in my opinion. I guess it bothers me because I'm afraid this game will show even less concern about historicity and realism than the first Rome game did, which is truly saying something. The trailer indicates a focus on dramatic garbage rather than, you know, total war.

Hopefully that's not really true though. In any case, hopefully the game is extremely moddable. I'm not sure how the last two games were in that regard, but the first Rome and second Medieval (same engine) seemed decently restrictive. People still made some great mods though (EB, Stainless Steel). I wish someone would just give Creative Assembly's funding to the EB team to make RTW2.
