The fans of Total War: Rome 2 recently have been very itchy as many would put it over the new feature that has been added in the game.
Well, Creative Assembly has responded and those fans might not be happy to hear it. According to the devs of Total War: Rome 2 female generals in the game are here to stay. They have no plans to change the feature.
This statement was made over at Twitter in a response to the recent complaints from the players, who apparently were not too happy with the inclusion of female generals.
This response given by Creative Assembly comes after a month of complaints lodged at the community manager over at Steam forum discussions. Originally this feature landed about six months back with the initial update which brought in playable female generals as playable characters.
Now that is all about the response, what the devs have actually said is a very odd statement. According to Creative Assembly
There have been no changes to recruitable female general spawn rates, But with the addition of the family tree feature and the new gameplay features it brings, playable factions may gain more female family members via marriage.
Furthermore, in the statement devs confirm that:
Female characters appear throughout the game but have between a 10 to 15 percent chance of appearing as recruitable generals for some of the playable factions … These percentage chances are moddable by players.
Adding more they have also verified that there is no bug “where this is shown to be different or not working as intended”.
So if any of the players are not too happy with the female inclusion:
if having female units upsets you that much you can either mod them out or just not play
So let’s see how does the community take this type of response from the devs.
