If you’ve yet to add the award-winning ROME II to your collection, Total War: ROME II – Caesar Edition might be the perfect opportunity.

What is it?

Total War: ROME II – Caesar Edition is a limited physical edition release of Total War: ROME II celebrating the eponymous military commander that includes two epic campaigns packs, all the latest updates, and a free ebook from Osprey Publishing.

Where can I get it?

Total War: ROME II – Caesar Edition is available from select physical retailers in certain territories around the world. Please check with your favourite stockist for details.

What’s included?

Included as part of the Caesar Edition is:

  • Total War: ROME II – The award-winning PC strategy game. At its heart lies the Grand Campaign, an epic campaign map that stretches from the tip of Scotland to the sands of North Africa; from the coast of Portugal to the Middle East. Beginning in the year 272BC, players pick a famous faction of the ancient world and guide it towards domination. ROME II also supports co-op campaign multiplayer and head-to-head multiplayer battles.

It also includes the following campaign expansion packs:

  • The Caesar in Gaul Campaign Expansion Pack – A war of great profit and glory for Caesar, this conflict made him extremely popular with the people of Rome… though less so with the senators, who saw him gathering power to himself in a series of events that ultimately led to his dictatorship. Now is your chance to retell that story or stop him in his tracks.
  • The Imperator Augustus Campaign Expansion Pack – Set in 42BC during the chaotic aftermath of Julius Caesar’s betrayal and grisly murder, the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack puts players at the outbreak of one of the bloodiest civil wars ever fought. The republic remains whole but its soul is divided as Gaius Octavian, Marc Antony, and Lepidus – the members of the Second Triumvirate – hold the future of Rome in the palms of their hands.

Both are massive campaign expansions which rival the original ROME II Grand Campaign in both scope and scale.

Additionally, the Caesar Edition includes the latest updates to the ROME II base game and DLCs from the get-go:

  • The Power & Politics Update – Completely overhauls ROME II’s politics system and adds a variety of new political actions for your campaign. Your party can gain influence and political support by completing missions and winning victories on the battlefield. The re-worked system enables the player to have a direct impact on campaign gameplay through their political actions.
  • The Ancestral Update – Introducing the fan-favourite Family Tree, the Ancestral Update offers new ways to interact with – and manipulate – the characters in your faction. This update also updates ROME II’s visuals in many areas and contains a huge number of tweaks and improvements to the core game.

What’s exclusive?

In addition to brand-new box art by Marius Kozik, owners of Total War: ROME II – Caesar Edition will also receive a code for a Julius Caesar ebook by Dr Nic Fields from Osprey Publishing (available in English language only).

One of the greatest military commanders in history, Julius Caesar’s most famous victory – the conquest of Gaul – was to him little more than a stepping stone to power. Caesar launched a civil war which would end the Roman Republic and usher in the Roman Empire, with Caesar at its helm. This examination of the great general’s life covers his many victories and few defeats as well as the factors which lay behind his military genius, making it an essential resource for any aspiring commander.
