Total War: Rome II, the best-selling game in the Total War Series, is receiving the royal treatment with the release of the definitive Emperor Edition.
Emperor Edition gathers together all the free content to date, which includes wide-ranging revisions to the gameplay, additions to game features, and adds the new Campaign expansion, ‘Imperator Augustus’. More importantly, players who already own a copy of ROME II will receive all the content mentioned above via automatic update on the day of launch, upgrading them to Emperor Edition at no cost.
The new ‘Imperator Augustus’ Campaign adds hundreds of hours of sandbox gameplay across a new campaign map reflecting the geopolitical boundaries of the Second Triumvirate War. Players will determine the outcome of a vast civil war, which saw Octavian, Marc Antony and Lepidus fighting to become the very first Emperor of Rome.
Alongside all feature updates from launch, the Emperor Edition includes Twitch integration, touch controls, new factions, new units and now the Mac version. Emperor Edition also features an improved politics system, overhauled building chains, rebalanced battles, and improved visuals in both campaign and battle.
Total War: Rome II Emperor Edition is slated to launch sometime in September.
