Total War: Rome II gets Pirates & Raiders Culture DLC
New pack introduces Balkan culture
Sega has confirmed the release of Pirates & Raiders Culture Pack for Total War: Rome II.
The DLC introduces an ancient-world Balkan culture, consisting of three new playable factions. Each is adept at raiding or piracy, and capable of amassing huge mercenary armies at lightning speed.
Players can now ransack the campaign map as the Ardiaei of Illyria, and the Thracian tribes of Tylis and the Odrysian Kingdom. With their own rosters of military and naval units, distinct traits, religion and play styles, the Balkan factions offer new ways to experience the Grand Campaign in Rome II.
To complement this pack, a free update for the game was released earlier this week. This latest DLC comprised an extra playable faction from the Balkan culture – the independent Thracian tribe of The Getae – plus a new historical battle, The Battle of Pydna.
Total War: Rome II was released on PC last year.
