News: Total War: Rome II Coming in September

Massive battle

People looking forward to the next Total War game need only wait until September 3 to start marching legionnaires around on the path to glory. Sega has confirmed that this will be a global release date, so there'll be no waiting around in one region while another is happily enjoying their game. There will also be a fancy collector's edition which comes as a physical copy of the game with all sorts of physical goods, making for a nice change of pace from so many other recent collector's editions where everything has been digital. Although speaking of digital, there is also day one DLC planned for the game (feel free to ready pitchforks, tar, and feathers at your leisure) that will unlock various Greek factions including Athens, Sparta, and Epirus. People who pre-order the game will get this DLC for free with Rome II.
