Total War: Rome II – Empire Divided and Power & Politics updates are confirmed for November release.
Total War: Rome II will receive two new updates on November 30, 2017.
Empire Divided tells of the 3rd Century fragmentation of the Roman Empire, with players given the opportunity to reunite the empire, or pull it down completely.
Total War: ROME II – Empire Divided features a wealth of content, including 10 playable factions, and a range of new victory conditions.
There are also fun new campaign features like plagues, cults and banditry. As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a bandit. So that should be fun.
Also released on November 30th is the free Power & Politics patch update. This extensive patch revamps the game’s political system, adding a variety of new actions that result in a wider range of consequences on the battlefield.
Michael Whelan, from developer Creative Assembly, has pulled together a comprehensive Q&A on both updates. It also includes detailed patch notes, and information on how to enter the Beta for both updates.
Total War: Rome II – Empire Divided is priced at £11.99, with a 10% discount if pre-purchased.
