ROME: Total War – Barbarian Invasion Comes To iPhone, Android Release In June
The popular ROME: Total War standalone expansion, Barbarian Invasion, is now available for iPhone after an announcement by Feral Interactive. The game was previously brought to the iPad by the same company, but that has now expanded to the iPhone, too, with an Android release slated for June.
Barbarian Invasion is set in 363AD when the Roman Empire was at its strongest and the Barbarian hordes started to fight back. The game features multiple groups including Pagan, Zoroastrian, and Christian and there’s a new Horde mechanic added, which commands groups to raid opposing settlements. All of this makes for a busy game, which means you’ll need a beefy iPhone to play it.
To that end and in order to play Barbarian Invasion, you’ll need an iPhone 5s or later running iOS 12 with at least 4GB of free space. That still means that there is a huge number of handsets out there that are capable of playing this game, with the 6th generation iPod touch thrown in for good measure.
