ROME: Total War for iPhone — polished Metal
The upcoming iPhone version of ROME: Total War will use Metal, Apple’s proprietary API, rather than OpenGL to power its graphics.
Using the latest version of Metal for iOS offers a slew of benefits, from improved performance and enhanced graphics to less drain on the battery.
Rome wasn't rebuilt in a day… but you can enjoy every step of its construction. Over the coming weeks, expect further reveals of ROME features being developed for the iPhone.
