You Call That A Screenshot? 30,000 x 4087 Pixels... Now That's A Screenshot!

The people in charge of hyping the new PC game Total War: Rome II keep exploiting our weakness for absurdly large, detailed screenshots -- screenshots that could get their game mistaken for the most violent Where's Waldo ever.

Their new shot today is 30,000 x 4087 and weighs in at 80MB. It's not quite as gargantuan as their last one, but it's big nonetheless. Download it from this official page.

It is a truly impressive thing, both in its scale and in the horrors it manages to hide.

Poor guy.

Obviously, the Creative Assembly's real-time strategy game is never going to look quite like this screenshot, but to get the game running this September on your rig and normal-sized monitors, make sure you can meet the official minimum/recommended specs.
