The mobile port of the ROME: Total War – Barbarian Invasion expansion landed on the iPad back in 2017, and today Feral Interactive has announced that it's finally coming to iPhone and Android users sometime later this year. The central premise of this expansion revolves around the final years of Rome, and it will be up to choose whether you should defend the empire or lead the troops that aim to destroy it.

iPad trailer for ROME: Total War – Barbarian Invasion

At the tail end of last year, we finally saw the official release of ROME: Total War on the Google Play Store. This launch took place two years after the title was released on iOS, so as you can imagine, quite a few Android users were anxious to get their hands on the classic strategy game. Well, it would appear that iOS is still the lead platform for the port's developer Feral Interactive. Today's announcement has made it clear the iPhone release of this expansion is set to arrive before the Android version. No dates have been provided for either release, but It's nice to know new content is coming to mobile players sometime soon, though it still sucks to hear that Android users will receive the Barbarian Invasion expansion last.

Press Release

Feral Interactive today announced that Barbarian Invasion, the standalone expansion for the acclaimed historical strategy game ROME: Total War will be released for iPhone and Android later this year. Barbarian Invasion was originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA for Windows PC, and previously brought to iPad by Feral Interactive.

Barbarian Invasion brings the action into the final years of Rome. Players will take up arms to defend the Empire, or lead the forces striving for its destruction.

Barbarian Invasion will be released on iPhone followed by Android.

On iPhone, users who already own Barbarian Invasion on iPad will be able to download the iPhone version for free.

Thanks to a recent tweet from Feral Interactive it is now clear that the Android version of ROME: Total War – Barbarian Invasion is set to launch on the Play Store this June. A firm date for the month has yet to be provided, though it's nice of the studio to narrow its previous "this year" release statement to a distinct month. I'm sure as June inches closer and closer more details will be revealed, so expect further coverage as the situation develops.
