In the Options overlay for ROME: Total War, you can change the Unit Size from Recommended to Larger, which will double the Unit Size for your device.

To change the Unit Size setting, follow the steps below. Please note: changing from Recommended to Larger will impact the game's performance. It is a purely cosmetic setting, and does not grant you any more units in battle. For the best experience, we recommend that you do not change this setting.

  1. From the Main Menu, select Options. The Options screen will appear.
  2. Select Show More Options. The Options overlay will appear.
  3. Select Advanced
  4. Select Unit Size.
  5. Select Larger - Reduces Performance in 3D Battles.
  6. Select Close. The Unit Size has now been increased.
