Total War Rome 2 - BOOK! "Destroy Carthage: Based on the bestselling game"
Carthage, 146 BC. This is the story of Fabius Petronius Secundus – Roman legionary and centurion – and his rise to power: from his first battle against the Macedonians, that seals the fate of Alexander the Great's Empire, to total war in North Africa and the Seige of Carthage. Fabius's success brings him admiration and respect, but also attracts greed and jealousy – the closest allies can become the bitterest of enemies. And then there is Julia, of the Caesar family – a dark horse in love with both Fabius and his rival Paullus – who causes a vicious feud. Ultimately for Fabius, it will come down to one question: how much is he prepared to sacrifice for his vision of Rome? Based on Total War: Rome II, the bestselling game, Destroy Carthage is the first in an epic series of novels. It is not only the tale of one man’s fate, but is also a journey to the core of Roman times, through the world of extraordinary military tactics and political intrigue that Rome’s warriors and citizens used to cheat death.

Hmmm... That looks interesting. I sure hope that its not like the other game inspired books that usually turnout to be rubbish. The exceptions i can think of comes from the warhammer universe. Ofcourse its also a clever method of accumulating further income through the game. Though it might be better than expected. Also that release date is a good indicator for the release of the game. I think that it would be safe to assume that the game will be released before the book. Hence the ambitious claim "best selling game". We shall see. Thanks for sharing my friend.
