Total War: Rome 2 trailer shows off the campaign map and the plight of Cleopatra

A new trailer for The Creative Assembly's Total War: Rome 2 is about the ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra and her struggle for power.

Presenting herself as the reincarnation of the goddess Isis, Cleopatra bedded Julius Caesar and used his forces to consolidate her rule on the throne. That, however, would eventually be her downfall.

The beginning of the trailer offers a brief glimpse at the game's campaign map, showing off the Mediterranean in miniature.

Total War: Rome 2 is scheduled to hit Windows PC this September.
