Caesar in Gaul DLC and more patches out for Total War: Rome II

Posted by: Randy at 12/18/2013 12:26 PM

The Caesar in Gaul downloadable content for Total War: Rome II is now available on Steam.

Even as developer Creative Assembly continues to push out improvements and fixes to the embattled Rome II vanilla campaign, the new Caesar in Gaul DLC gets more microscopic -- time-wise and geographically -- to focus on a seven-year stretch Caesar spent in what is now modern-day France. Each year consists of multiple turns, introducing seasons to the visual and strategic mix, while Gaul and the south coast of Britannia get their maps carved into tinier pieces for a more detailed conquest.

 


 Caesar in Gaul, the first campaign expansion for ROME II, is available to download now. Bringing Caesar’s Gallic war to life in thrilling detail, Caesar in Gaul offers a tighter scope in terms of time and geography than ROME II’s original grand campaign.

Playing as Rome or one of the key barbarian tribes in this seven-year conflict, players will experience a campaign map that represents an expanded, more detailed vision of Gaul and the south coast of Britannia. With multiple turns per year, this expansion also brings seasonal changes, with new gameplay effects and stunning visual alterations.

Caesar in Gaul also offers players a new historical battle to challenge their generalship. The Battle of Alesia, the decisive engagement of Caesar’s war in Gaul, offers a unique tactical situation in which the Romans must survive a twin-pronged onslaught of the massed Gallic forces.

Concurrent with this launch, a new patch bringing important gameplay changes will download automatically via Steam for all ROME II owners. For full patch notes please visit http://wiki.totalwar.com/w/Total_War_ROME_II:_Patch_Notes
