Total War: ROME II - Caesar Edition contains the following content:
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.
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.
Imperator Augustus Campaign Expansion Pack - Set in 42 BC 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.
New features include:
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.
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.
Also, a Julius Caesar eBook by Dr Nic Fields from Osprey Publishing:
One of the greatest military commanders in history, Julius Caesar's most famous campaigns – the subjugation 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 great victories and few defeats, and examines the factors which lay behind his military genius. An essential resource for any aspiring commander.
