The Creative Assembly reveals new details and screens for its first expansion.
The Creative Assembly has announced the first major expansion for Total War: Rome 2 – Caesar in Gaul. The expansion will offer a new campaign along with new factions, set between 58 to 51 BC across 10 provinces from Gaul to Britannia.
With the short number of years, players will have 24 turns in each along with seasons that alter the environment. There will be four factions here: Gallic Arverni, the Germanic Suebi, the Belgic Nervii and Rome. The Nervii, Boii and Galatians will also be available for use in the main campaign, along with some new auxiliary and merc units.
Creative director Mike Simpson stated that, “We’ve released a number of DLC packs and free content updates for Rome II, but this is our most substantial so far. We’ve always planned to focus more closely on some of the key conflicts of the ancient world, and Caesar’s war in Gaul is the ideal place to start. We’ve also improved the game considerably since launch, and that process continues as we move onto substantial feature and gameplay improvements”.
Caesar in Gaul will be available on December 12th on Steam and retail for $14.99/£9.99/€14.99. Stay tuned for more details and check out the new screens below in the meantime.
