Well, I’m not sure if anyone really saw this coming, but it’s a pleasant surprise – the Total War: Rome franchise is now spinning off into its own series of novels.
Written by David Gibbins, “The Sunday Times’ Best Selling Author” (as the book’s cover states), ‘Total War: Rome – Destroy Carthage‘ is the first of four books, based on The Creative Assembly’s best-selling game series, to be announced.
The story follows Roman centurion, Fabius Petronius Secundus, as he rises to power. Here’s the blurb from the book’s official site:
Destroy Carthage will launch alongside Total War: Rome II this September, and will be released in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese and Hungarian languages at launch. The book is currently available to pre-order from Amazon.
