Lay the foundations of the Empire in Rise of the Republic, a thrilling new prequel campaign pack for Total War: ROME II coming August 9. It launches with the free Ancestral Update, bringing the fan-favorite Family Free to all ROME II campaigns.
The year is 399 BC and Rome is poised for greatness. However, its very existence balances on a knife-edge. Depicting the events that led to the Second Founding of Rome and beyond, Rise of the Republic is a brand-new campaign pack for Total War: ROME II in which the fledgling republic must carve out her place in history… or die trying. Rise of the Republic will be out on August 9.
Rise of the Republic’s super-detailed campaign map depicts the landmass of Italy and its neighbors, and introduces nine playable factions including Rome, the great city-state of Syracuse, and the ambitious Gallic tribe of the Senones. The new Government Actions feature enables players to activate unique bonuses for their chosen faction, while engaging in new region-specific dilemmas drawn from the annals of history.
Launching simultaneously with Rise of the Republic, the Ancestral Update introduces the Family Tree to all ROME II campaigns. This visual representation of your family and nobles enables you to interact with and manipulate characters, forge bonds and alliances with other factions, and engage in intrigues to further your aims. The Ancestral Update will initially launch as an opt-in beta and is available now.
