During one of the official Total War: Rome 2 live-streams, it has been revealed that the rich Greek trading-state ‘Massilia’ will be added to the game for free.
The news spread like wildfire after the initial announcement and made its way to the popular forums.
You will be able to get your hands-on this faction starting 20th November. The developers have described the new faction as:
Massilia is a state of skilled traders and eloquent diplomats, but being somewhat conservative, the populace is less tolerant of foreign cultures within its boundaries. In battle, her warriors demonstrate a blend of Gallic and Greek martial techniques and armaments.
Accompanying this free content is a regular paid DLC “Black Sea Colonies Culture Pack.” This pack will add three new factions to Total War: Rome 2 namely Cimmeria, Colchis and Pergamon.
Each of these colonies are from Greek Heritage but due to large distance from their homeland, the culture in each faction is quite different from the others.
No price range has been revealed for this pack just yet but looking at the past culture packs, we can safely assume that it will also cost $8.
You can catch more details on all the factions available in Total War: Rome 2 by visiting the game’s official website.
