Creative Assembly’s turn based strategy game came out last month on September 3 to generally favorable ratings. To retain all the attention that the developer has managed to grope with the undoubtedly good looking graphics of this title, regular DLCs have been released in the market.
The latest DLC, Total War: Rome 2 Nomadic Tribes Culture Pack was formally announced through a post on Sega’s official blog today. This will be the third DLC for the game succeeding Pontus and The Seleucids.
Three new factions will be made playable with the Nomadic Tribes pack namely the Royal Scythians, Roxolani and Massagetae.
With the three roving tribes in the game now you can expect a lot of cavalry, a range of new types of buildings and building chains, technology tree new units and brand new campaign objectives. The cavalry will also bring inherent benefits of quicker hit and run charges as well as “massed shattering charge tactics on battlefield.”
Mike Simpson of Creative Assembly was confident about the number of gamers who have indulged in the game and believes that the DLC is being given out for free as a gratitude note to the fans for their support:
“We’ve had more gamers playing ROME II, and for longer, in its first month than any other Total War to date. We are going to continue to work on gameplay feature balancing with our community who has been hugely helpful in feeding back on the game. Offering this DLC for free for the first week it’s on sale is a celebration and small thank you to them for helping us make this the biggest Total War yet.”
The DLC will be free if you download it before October 29 but after that it will come with a price tag of $8.
