About Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition:

Emperor Edition is the definitive edition of ROME II, featuring an improved politics system, overhauled building chains, rebalanced battles and improved visuals in both campaign and battle.

In addition, Emperor Edition includes all content and feature updates made available for ROME II since its launch in September 2013. These include Twitch.TV integration, touchscreen controls, new playable factions and units, and Mac compatibility.

The Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack and all Emperor Edition content and features are free, via automatic update, to all existing ROME II owners.

About the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack:

The Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack is a new playable campaign for ROME II, which rivals the original ROME II Grand Campaign in both scope and scale. This campaign comes as part of Total War™: ROME II – Emperor Edition and is available as a free, automatic update to existing owners of Total War™: ROME II.

The Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack is set in 42 BC during the chaotic aftermath of Caesar’s grisly murder. The republic remains whole, but its soul is divided as three great men, the members of the Second Triumvirate, hold the future of Rome in the palms of their hands.

Octavian, Caesar’s adoptive son and the heir to his legacy.

Marc Antony, Caesar’s loyal friend and most trusted lieutenant.

Lepidus, Pontifex Maximus of Rome and the man who secured Caesar’s dictatorship.

With the territories of The Republic divided between them and the military might of Rome at their beck-and-call, the members of The Second Triumvirate are each in a position to make a bid for leadership, and rule Rome as its first – and only – emperor.

However, external forces are on the move, looking to exploit the instability of Rome and expand their own territories. Will you fight as a defender of Rome and defeat the other members of the Triumvirate? Or lead another faction on a campaign of conquest and expansion, and take advantage of the chaos as the Roman civil war rages?

Playable Factions

Players may embark on a new Campaign as one of the following playable factions: Marc Antony, Lepidus, Octavian, Pompey, Iceni, Marcomanni, Dacia , Egypt , Parthia , Armenia (also now playable in the ROME II Grand Campaign).

How far will you go for Rome?

The award-winning Total War series returns to Rome, setting a brand new quality benchmark for Strategy gaming. Become the world’s first superpower and command the Ancient world’s most incredible war machine. Dominate your enemies by military, economic and political means. Your ascension will bring both admiration and jealousy, even from your closest allies.

Will you suffer betrayal or will you be the first to turn on old friends? Will you fight to save the Republic, or plot to rule alone as Emperor?
  • Plan your conquest of the known world in a massive sandbox turn-based campaign mode (supporting additional 2-player cooperative & competitive modes). Conspiracies, politics, intrigue, revolts, loyalty, honour, ambition, betrayal. Your decisions will write your own story.
  • Build vast armies and take to the battlefield in real-time combat mode. Put your tactical skills to the test as you directly control tens of thousands of men clashing in epic land and sea battles.
  • Play for the glory of Rome as one of three families or take command of a huge variety of rival civilisations – each offers a notably different form of gameplay experience with hundreds of unique units from siege engines and heavy cavalry to steel-plated legionaries and barbarian berserkers.
  • See exotic ancient cities and colossal armies rendered in incredible detail, as jaw-dropping battles unfold. Detailed camera perspectives allow you to see your men shout in victory or scream in pain on the frontline, while a new tactical cam allows a god’s eye view of the carnage to better inform your strategic decisions.
  • Extremely scalable experience, with gameplay and graphics performance optimised to match low and high-end hardware alike.

  3. It's okay, not great
    by Ryan Villarreal1, USA - Jun 17th 2017

    I grew up playing the original which i loved. this version was cool in the sense that it added improved graphics & naval battles, but i unfortunatly i never got it to run seemlessly on my 2014 MacBook w/o compromising quality (despite the fact that i met all the min requirements and then some!). Even then it was still sketchy. Needless to say, it was very frustrating to have to set all the graphics quality to low-med. On top of that it takes up over 40GB of space. If you got a strong top of the line computer, go for it, but it you have an average MacBook like myself stick with the original.

  4. One of the best yet
    by Dubbs09, USA - Dec 10th 2016

    After learning (i.e. reading a lot of manual and forums) and figuring out the new province system, I finally got my happiness and food under control. At that point this game becomes a great time. Just takes time to figure out the new systems

  6. Crashes and Poorly Optimized
    by Daniel Steven Oles, USA - Nov 29th 2016

    I'm warning people to regard closely the 'no return' policy on this game.

    Despite my Mac meeting minimum requirements the game looks terrible and crashes almost immediately even on lowest settings.

    Looks like fun if it would work, but right now I'm poorer and that's about it.

  7. Good for an audience...
    by Valkade Cavel, USA - Sep 30th 2016

    If you're looking for a pure, somewhat complicated tactics game, then I'd say you've found your gem. For me personally, I found the game to have far too many little nooks and cranies, making the game more of a mathematical chore than a fun experience. Once again, if you want a PURE TACTICS, MANAGEMENT, AND CALCULATIVE GAME, this is for you. If not, keep looking.

  9. Now is a lot better
    by zipinel, Romania - Sep 5th 2016

    This game was literally the worst when they first released it, but after several patches it got better and better and when they released the Emperor edition it became my favourite game. So i recommend this game if you like strategy, and i actually think its worth the full price since you get so much playtime out of it.

  10. Total War Rome II
    by Thijmen van Vugt, Netherlands - Aug 2nd 2016

    It's okay. I gave this my score because it can run more easily on high than Attila TW (it has higher graphic requirements). It doesn't do anything new and you have to catch up to a lot of dlc's. Not my type of cookie, just like Empire TW, it tried too much and still has issues with the AI.
