First ‘Total War: Rome II’ Campaign Expansion Announced – Caesar’s in Gaul
Creative Assembly has announced Caesar in Gaul, which will be the first expansion for Total War: Rome II, bringing Caesar’s Gallic war to life. Players will have a tighter scope of time and geography, with the campaign map offering an expanded, more details vision of Gaul and south coast of Britannia.
Caesar in Gaul will allow players to choose from four playable factions for the expansion: the Gallic Arverni, the Germanic Suebi, the Belgic Nervii and Rome; in a campaign inspired by Caesar’s Commentarii de bello Gallico (Commentaries on the Gallic war).
“We’ve released a number of DLC packs and free content updates for Rome II, but this is our most substantial so far”, said Mike Simpson, Creative Director of the Total War series. “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 feature a greater focus on characters, new mid-game challenge mechanics, new units and much more. The expansion will be available to download December 12 (GMT) for $14.99/£9.99/€14.99.
