Creative Assembly has revealed its plans for the DLC for its upcoming strategy game—Total War: Rome 2. According to Polygon, the game will be getting a mixture of both free as well as paid DLC.

Lead Designer James Russell has stated that there will be three types of packs that will be paid. According to him, "gamers can expect to see culture packs that add more playable factions and unique units, feature packs that add gameplay or wide-ranging aesthetic changes, and campaign packs that add entirely new story-based campaign expansions."

Let lose the dogs of war!

 

The first culture pack for the game, Greek States, along with the Pontus faction will be available to buy at launch. Greek States is also part of the pre-order bonus. The company plans to release the Seleucid Empire faction as free DLC and the Nomadic Tribes Culture Pack as paid DLC by October—a month after the game's launch.

"As with Shogun 2, we will continually improve the game's compatibility, optimization and integral features such as AI and gameplay balancing post-release, and plan to add to that with new control schemes and additional free formats on other operating systems," Russell said. "We are also very proud of how Shogun 2 is our most moddable Total War to date with over 500 user-made mods on Steam Workshop alone. We hope to support Rome 2 in a similar fashion."

Total War: Rome 2 is set to hit store shelves on September 3. The game is currently available for pre-order on digital distribution service Steam, where it costs a hefty $59.95 (Rs 3790 approx). It will be more affordable when it hits retail, though, costing Rs 999.
