Long after its iOS debut in 2016, ROME: Total War is now available on Android for users in North America, Europe, Australia, and parts of Asia. The turn-based strategy game lets players try their hand at a conquest of Europe, North Africa, and the Near East as one of 19 factions including Egypt, Gaul, and Britannia. 

This Android port comes courtesy of Feral Interactive, the same studio that brought ROME: Total War to iOS. Feral's iOS port was generally well-received, with players praising the game for being a faithful port, but noting that many of the usual issues with ports do apply, including quirky controls and occasional crashes. The early reviews on the Google Play Store echo similar, mainly positive sentiments.

The game officially supports the devices listed below, and may work on others (detailed in the Google Play Store description) though not at the same standard of performance, graphics, or stability.

  • Google Pixel XL
  • Google Pixel 2
