Here’s a bit more from the developer about this unique battle:
In 9AD, Teutoburg Forest was the scene of a crushing defeat for the Empire. Masterminded by Arminius, the son of a Germanic chieftain taken as a child and raised as a hostage in Rome, the battle saw his betrayal of the Roman general Varus. Arminius united the tribes, ambushed Varus’ Legion and struck a fatal and shattering blow to the Empire’s expansion.
Total War: Rome II, the sequel to the 2004 PC game Rome: Total War, will be out this October.
