The Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for Total War: Rome II which shows one of the historical battles you can play and try to change history with. In 9 AD, Teutoburg Forest was the scene of a big defeat for the Roman Empire (three Roman legions, along with their auxiliaries were destroyed).
Arminius, the son of a Germanic chieftain who was taken as a child and raised as a hostage in Rome led the ambush against the Roman general Varus. Arminius united the Germanic tribes, ambushed Varus’ Legion and struck a big blow to the Roman Empire’s expansion plan in Germania. The Romans would never hold more than the area beyond the Rhine river.

I love myself some historical battles as you can try to recreate proper battles how it actually happened or try and change the outcome of history which is always fun to do.
For Senatus Populusque Romanus (SPQR).
