Total War: Rome II is Creative Assembly's latest edition to their Total War strategy games series. This anticipated new addition is set to be released September 3, 2013. The playable factions represents the key powers of the time period. These factions include Greco-Roman, Barbarians, and Eastern cultures. While many of these factions will seem familiar to those that played the first Total War: Rome, Creative Assembly has retooled them for a supposedly deeper form of gameplay.
These factions each bring different strengths to this new game, some focus on military might, while others focus on domination through political or commercial power. Each faction will have different dilemmas to face on their road to world domination.
