SEGA and Creative Assembly announced today that the prequel campaign pack for Total War: Rome II, Rise of the Republic, will launch August 9.
Rise of the Republic’s campaign map depicts the landmass of Italy and its neighbours, and also introduces nine playable factions. Included is Rome, the great city-state of Syracuse, and the ambitious Gallic tribe of the Senones. The new Government Actions feature will allow players to activate unique bonuses for their chosen faction, while engaging in new region-specific dilemmas drawn from the annals of history.
