Lay the foundations of the Empire in Rise of the Republic, a thrilling new prequel campaign pack for Total War: ROME II coming 9th August

Launches with free Ancestral Update, bringing the fan-favourite family tree to all ROME II campaigns

The year is 399 BC and Rome is poised for greatness. However, its very existence balances on a knife-edge. Depicting the events that led to the Second Founding of Rome and beyond, Rise of the Republic is a brand-new campaign pack for ROME II in which the fledgling republic must carve out her place in history… or die trying. Rise of the Republic will be out on 9th of August, you can watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6eoLj28uv0

Rise of the Republic’s super-detailed campaign map depicts the landmass of Italy and its neighbours, and introduces nine playable factions including Rome, the great city-state of Syracuse, and the ambitious Gallic tribe of the Senones. The new Government Actions feature enables players to activate unique bonuses for their chosen faction, while engaging in new region-specific dilemmas drawn from the annals of history.

Launching simultaneously with Rise of the Republic, the Ancestral Update introduces the Family Tree to all ROME II campaigns. This visual representation of your family and nobles enables you to interact with and manipulate characters, forge bonds and alliances with other factions, and engage in intrigues to further your aims. The Ancestral Update will initially launch as an opt-in beta and is available now.

Full details on both the Ancestral Update beta can be found in the blog, here: https://www.totalwar.com/blog/total-war-rome-ii-ancestral-update

Rise of the Republic is available for 10% off until its release on the 9th of August here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/850010
