Last year a 24-year-old Total War fan named James was the first to play Creative Assembly’s Total War: Rome 2. He was given interviews, tours and even had his suggestions for the title. James is now being immortalized in the upcoming Rome 2, turning into a Roman solider in the full game when it comes out later this year.
Sadly after the visit James lost his battle with liver cancer and died. James’ trip to Creative Assembly was organized by the charity organization known as Willow as part of its Special Day initiative. It is basically a sort of ‘make a wish’ in the US where people with terminally illness get a day to do what they always wanted. You can check out more of James’ story over at Eurogamer’s article.
