If you already own the game, you get upgraded to Emperor Edition for free.
If you already own a copy of Total War: Rome II, The Creative Assembly will upgrade your game to the Emperor Edition for free, come September 16. And considering just how substantial the Emperor Edition update is, that’s actually a fairly big deal.
The Emperor Edition Pack adds the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack, which drops players into the outbreak of the great Roman civil war that gave rise to the first emperor, as Octavian, Marc Anthony and Lepidus clash for supremacy.
Total War: Rome II was originally released last year for PC, and its launch was plagued with all sorts of problems, as we saw The Creative Assembly game launch with a plethora of bugs that would put Bethesda or DICE to shame; a lot of damage was done, damage that Sega and The Creative Assembly then spent the next few months trying to fix and contain. As of right now, the game is actually playable and worth trying, so if you haven’t already jumped on board, this Emperor Edition update might be as good a time as any to do so.
