Activision sends us word that Rome: Total War has gone Gold:
Santa Monica, CA ? September 13, 2004 ? Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today announced that Rome: Total War? has been released to manufacturing and will be shipping to retailers in North America on Wednesday, September 22. Developed by award-winning developer The Creative Assembly, Rome: Total War is a revolutionary new title in the best-selling Total War? series that will carry players into the midst of ancient history?s most intense conflicts. Rome: Total War for the PC is rated ?T? (?Teen? ? Violence) by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Rome: Total War features groundbreaking technology that brings the epic, cinematic battles of the Roman era to life with graphics and gameplay beyond anything previously seen in a PC game. Players will be transported to the battlefields of ancient history?s greatest conflicts and control mighty armies. Up to 10,000 fully polygonal, highly detailed, motion-captured warriors can appear on the screen at once. They control vast armies led by history's most legendary generals including Julius Caesar and Hannibal, and must use a combination of brains and brawn to successfully conquer the Roman Empire.

I've been ambivalent on the Total War series so far, but this one looks pretty good; I especially like the new motif.
