How big are the units in ROME: Total War, and can I increase their size?

ROME: Total War has a cosmetic Unit Size setting that dictates how many soldiers-per-unit appear on-screen in battles. The default unit sizes for each device are listed below:

Default Unit Size
20 40 80 160
iPod Touch (6th Generation) iPad Air 2 iPod Touch (7th Generation) iPhone X
iPhone 5S iPad mini 4 iPhone 6S/6S Plus iPhone XS/XS Max
iPhone 6/6 Plus iPhone SE iPhone XR
iPad Air iPhone 7/7 Plus iPad mini 5
iPad mini 2 iPhone 8/8 Plus iPad Air 3
iPad mini 3 iPad Pro 9.7" iPad Pro 10.5"
iPad Pro 12.9" (1st Generation) iPad Pro 11"
iPad 2017 iPad Pro 12,9" (2nd Generation)
iPad 2018 iPad Pro 12,9" (3rd Generation)

In the app settings 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 your Home screen, open the Settings app.
  2. Navigate to ROME: Total War.
  3. Under Advanced, select Unit Size.
  4. Select Larger - Reduces Performance in 3D Battles.
  5. Close the Settings app and relaunch ROME: Total War.

Note: It is not possible to increase the Unit Size on devices listed in the 160 column, as these devices are set to Larger by default. You can, however, change to Recommended on these devices for improved performance.
