Total War: Rome II packshot image
Become the world’s first superpower and command the most incredible and vast war machine of the Ancient world. Dominate the enemies of your glorious empire by military, economic and political means. Your rise will bring admiration from your followers but will also attract greed and jealousy, even from your closest allies.
Will betrayal strike you down, or will you be the first to turn on old friends? How much are you ready to sacrifice for your vision of Rome? Will you fight to save the Republic, or plot to rule alone as Dictator — as Emperor?

The built-in benchmark in this game is deceptive for me lol. Had 77 FPS on Extreme settings on there but barely 35 when in realtime battles zoomed in. Lowering settings to High and turning off SSAO and Vegetation Alpha restored the framerate to -52-60 during large 4k troops battles.
