Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

edited September 2014 in General Discussion
We’ve announced the definitive version of ROME II – the Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition.

Emperor Edition collects together all free content to date, which includes wide-ranging revisions, additions to game features and adds a brand new Campaign Pack expansion, ‘Imperator Augustus’.

Most importantly, existing ROME II players will receive all of the above content via automatic update on the day of launch, upgrading them to Emperor Edition at no cost.

We go into a lot of detail about what’s included in this month’s episode of Rally Point, so join Craig and Matty in this episode to find out more.

[video=youtube_share;aukvxuZ1VcM]

A beta will be available soon that will test some of the features in Emperor Edition, please keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and official forum for details!

    F.A.Q

    If I buy ROME II today (or at any point up to the launch of Emperor Edition) will I still get the free upgrade to Emperor Edition when it launches?
    Yes.

    What platforms will Emperor Edition be available for?
    Mac and PC via Steamplay, buy it once and play it on both platforms.

    If you already own ROME II, you will be granted a Mac version of the game for free, again via Steamplay.

    Does the Emperor Edition contain all DLC?
    The Emperor Edition contains all Free-LC and content updates that have been applied to ROME II since launch , including but not limited to Pontus, Seleucid, Getae and Baktrian factions, Wonders & Seasons, touch controls, twitch.tv integration, roster updates for Carthage, Epirus and Suebi, additional units (Hexbearers, African Elephants, etc, etc), new achievements, Battle of Pydna, new seasonal festival events and so forth.

    If you already own ROME II and have updated it to the latest version via Steam, you will already have access to this content.

    The Emperor Edition will also include the new Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack DLC. This is a brand new Campaign Pack DLC launching at the same time as the Emperor Edition.

    All other paid-for ROME II DLC is not included in the Emperor Edition, but is compatible with it.

    I already own ROME II, how do I get the Emperor Edition and the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack DLC when it releases?
    On launch day, your version of ROME II will automatically update to the Emperor Edition like any other update or patch (as long as you have set the game to auto-update via Steam) and the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack will become available for you to download.

    When will the Emperor Edition launch?
    Very soon, follow us on Facebook, Twitter or check on the official forums for the release date announcement in the next couple of weeks.

    Does this mean that once the Emperor Edition is launched, there be no more DLC or Free-LC for ROME II released?
    No.

    What will happen to the original version of ROME II once the Emperor Edition is released?
    There will no longer be an original version of ROME II, all versions on sale will be the Emperor Edition. If you find an original version of ROME II on sale in a shop at any point in the future, bring it home and install it, it will be upgraded via Steam to the Emperor Edition.

    What ‘s this about a beta?
    There will be an experimental beta released soon that will test SOME of the features going into the Emperor Edition. If you are interested in trying it out follow us on Facebook, Twitter or check on the official forums for news as it breaks.

    So Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack, what’s in that?
    Like Caesar in Gaul and Hannibal at the Gates, it’s set on a new version of the Campaign Map (biggest yet for a Campaign Pack, with the most playable factions), and it’ll put you in the midst of the Triumvirate War that originally lead to the enshrinement of Rome’s first Emperor. Will you recreate that incredible feat or usurp that outcome? We will be letting you know all the details and features shortly, keep an eye on the forums and Facebook, also our Twitch Channel for some up-coming streams.

    Some retailers are listing the wrong details for Emperor Edition?
    All legitimate retailers have been contacted well before now and told to correct their information. If you have ordered from a retailer and you have questions about the details they are listing, please contact them.

    The building changes will apply to all campaigns, and the civil war changes to all campaigns apart from Caesar in Gaul as it has it's own unique end-game mechanic.
