The Desert Kingdoms Culture Pack introduces four new playable factions to Total War: ROME II. The Kingdoms of Kush, Saba and Nabatea fall under the African/Arabian subculture, while the Masaesyli are of Numidian origin. These factions are native to the deserts of Africa and Arabia. Surviving these harsh environmental conditions has forged them into hardy warriors who use the shifting desert sands to their advantage in battle.
The Steps of Isha map-pack offered us a unique opportunity to create a series of maps that were focused on a theme and maintain that theme through the visual look of the four maps. Normally when we create a map, it either needs to match the look of the campaign map geography or it’s designed to work with the narrative and structure of a quest battle. When we were faced with the task of creating a new map pack for Make War Not Love, we had none of the normal constraints. Instead, we needed maps that would feel totally unique. We knew we had to make the maps visually impressive, tactically interesting, and somehow tie into Valentine’s Day in the process, while feeling like they belong in the Warhammer world. Below we’ll discuss how we got from a single idea to full implementation.
