Feral has pushed out an update to ROME: Total War that brings some welcome enhancements to the acclaimed strategy game on iOS. First up, v1.10 adds eight more playable factions to the war theater, significantly increasing the strategy options available in the game. Using the new Unlock All Factions option in the settings screen, players are now free to choose from up to 19 factions, including the Greek Cities, Egypt, the Seleucid Empire, Carthage, Gaul, Germania, Britannia, and Parthia. This update also introduces a new range marker feature, which indicates the firing distance of selected missile units, as the picture above shows. In addition, units in a group can now be commanded to adopt ta uniform pace when traveling towards their target location. With the App Store update applied, ROME: Total War also gains support for both landscape orientations on the iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR. Lastly, third-generation 11-inch iPad Pro owners should see an improvement in graphics speed and an optimized game interface. ROME: Total War is available from the App Store for $9.99 as a universal app for iPhone and iPad.
