Creative Assembly confirms Total War: Rome II SteamOS release

A SteamOS version of Total War: Rome II will launch early next year, developer The Creative Assembly has announced.

The studio’s brand manager Rob Bartholomew revealed the news on Steam’s community site, adding that the game will support the recently revealed Steam Controller as soon as it can.

"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 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."

Valve previously promised announcements regarding SteamOS support for multiple AAA titles, during its wave of reveals back in September.
