If you've been a little out of the loop, the strategy game ROME: Total War's upcoming addition, Alexander, is the second standalone expansion pack for the iPad series.

Like the PC expansion it re-imagines the military feats of Alexander the Great, allowing you to lead the Greek kingdom of Macedon to conquer the Persian empire. Take place in turn-based battles, command over 50 units unique to the game, and enjoy the high-resolution visuals, intuitive touch controls, and enormous 3D battles without having to play the base game, ROME: Total War.

Alexander will be available this Thursday, July 27th, for the iPad (at least first-gen iPad Air and iPad mini 2, or newer) at £4.99/$4.99. Be sure you've got 4 GB of space free and iOS 10.2.0 or newer.
