A new campaign map focused on the tinderbox geopolitical situation that brought two ancient world superpowers to all-out war
Available from today, Hannibal at the Gates, the second major campaign pack DLC for Total War: Rome II, drops players into the Western Mediterranean at the outbreak of the second Punic War. It features a new campaign map focused on the tinderbox geopolitical situation that brought two ancient world superpowers to all-out war; with sworn rivals Scipio and Hannibal at the very heart of the conflict.
Five playable factions feature a wealth of new units. Main protagonists Rome and Carthage will benefit from a new civil tech tree based around diplomacy, while the challenge in the shadow of these mighty empires for newcomers Syacuse, the Arevaci and the Lusitani will be formidable.
A new gameplay movie is available for your viewing pleasure.
