    From what i can tell from this quote, there are going to be emerging factions, like in MTW!! w00t!!

    Adding to the chaos, still others will emerge when circumstances are right,

    Unlike Rome: Total War, victory conditions will vary from faction to faction, providing a welcome break from the unimaginative task of conquering most of the known world. For example, the Huns will need to sweep across the map to conquer many regions (no less than 32), but the Sarmatians will only have to take and hold five specific regions near the Black Sea. Other factions will have to vanquish or outlast certain opponents, while the beleaguered western Romans will simply need to survive with a minimum number of provinces until the campaign ends in 476.
    Some of them sounded rather easy.
    And do you have to endure the whole game period before you can win with the romans? I can`t see how I`m gonna make that.
    Runes for good luck:

    The new victory conditions sounds awesome. They are bringing back GA mode (kind of, at least it's not only conquest)

    Saying that the Romans' "relatively easy expansion" is "historically accurate" is a bit false, especially after reading the author's little bio at the bottom, I would have expected him to recognise the Romans' stuggle to survive let alone struggle to forge their empire.

    Looks good anyway, can't wait. And to top it off, my birthday's in August
