    Default The Roman Gazette - UK newspaper Advert

    I knew that preorders were x6 any previous TW game but I wasn't expecting to open my newspaper this morning (Sep 6) and find an 8 page spoof Roman Army gazette. A search suggests it is just the Guardian newspaper involved but the marketing dept at CA/Sega have still been pretty ambitious. It reports news of the disaster of Teutoburg, has an article on 200 year old events (What can we learn from Hannibal crossing the Alps), quizzes ("Do you have what it takes to become a Centurion in the modern Roman army?") and other bits of fun.

    You can download it from: This feature page at the Guardian

    Thanks for pointing this out, looks like the marketing machine is in full swing. If only they had named it the Gahzette... :)

    I find their interface annoying, so here's the same thing re-hosted in Google Docs.
