'Total War: Rome II' To Get Empire Divided Expansion, Free Update This Month - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 8, 2017 @ 8:31 a.m. PST

Encompassing one of the best-known periods in world history, Total War: Rome II will combine the most expansive turn-based campaign and the largest, most cinematic real-time battles yet seen in any game.

Total War: Rome II will sink players into the dangerous political machinations of Rome’s senate, while asking them to struggle with family dilemmas and question the loyalty of ‘friends’ and allies. Leading the greatest army ever seen into battle will be just one challenge you will face at the head of the world’s first superpower.

Will you help forge an empire? Restore the Republic? Or grasp the reins of power for yourself, and assume the hated title of tyrant? Who will you conquer? Who will you betray? Who will you sacrifice?

How far will you go for Rome?


It is the crisis of the third century. A string of inept emperors and usurpers vying for power has torn the Roman Empire into three factions, and with barbarians and eastern Empires ready to exploit the chaos, it’s time to do-or-die. On 30th November, players can reunite the empire or tear it down in this new, grand-scale campaign pack for Total War: Rome II.

Total War: Rome II - Empire Divided features a host of new content to give a new lease of life to Rome II, including 10 different playable factions, new victory conditions and new campaign features such as plagues, cults and banditry. Empire Divided also has a big focus on telling the stories of the characters and powers involved in this rich and fascinating period.

Also joining Empire Divided on 30th November is the free Power & Politics patch update. This update overhauls Rome II’s political system to create a more subtle and intriguing experience with farther-reaching consequences.

Full details on Empire Divided, plus info on how Rome II players can gain entry to the Power & Politics open beta, can be found in the Empire Divided Q&A.

Total War: Rome II - Empire Divided is available now to pre-order through Steam.
