Sega has announced the latest upcoming DLC for Total War: Rome II! Coming 9th of August, Rise of the Republic is a thrilling new prequel campaign pack and launches with a free Ancestral Update, bringing the fan-favourite family tree to all ROME II campaigns.
Rise of the Republic’s super-detailed campaign map depicts the landmass of Italy and its neighbours, and introduces nine playable factions including Rome, the great city-state of Syracuse, and the ambitious Gallic tribe of the Senones. The new Government Actions feature enables players to activate unique bonuses for their chosen faction, while engaging in new region-specific dilemmas drawn from the annals of history.
Launching simultaneously with Rise of the Republic, the Ancestral Update introduces the Family Tree to all ROME II campaigns. This visual representation of your family and nobles enables you to interact with and manipulate characters, forge bonds and alliances with other factions, and engage in intrigues to further your aims. The Ancestral Update will initially launch as an opt-in beta and is available now.
