Even more than a year after launching Total War: Rome II on the PC, The Creative Assembly are continuing to update the game on a regular basis. This month has seen a complementary content update, DLC content and patch drop simultaneously, with all three available for download and/or purchase via Steam.
The free update gives all owners of Total War: Rome II access to a brand new faction: Massilia. A wealthy trading-state of Greek colonists situated on the north-western coast of the Mediterranean, Massilia has embraced Gallic culture and military techniques to form a unique and fascinating independent faction.
Priced at $7.99 USD, the Black Sea Colonies Culture Pack DLC brings a further three hybrid factions to Rome II’s grand campaign, custom battles and multiplayer offerings. immeria, Colchis and Pergamom all claim Greek heritage, but their settlement away from their homelands has wrought subtle changes to their culture. Each faction enjoys unique traits, strengths and hybrid unit Rosters that reflect their culturally diverse civic and military aspects.
The patch on the other hand provides further balancing changes to unit strengths based on community feedback.
