Looked at the Faction list and there is only space for 8 faction
Could of sworn CA said that there would be loads. However if this does mean each faction will be unique with regards to tech tree and units then I do not have a problem.
i7 930 @ 2.8ghz Overclocked to 4.1ghz (Upgrading to Haswell only due to Rome II Total War)
Rampage 3 Extreme Mobo
6 gigs DDR3 Corsair Dominator GT @ 2000mhz
Nvidia MSI GTX 690
CoolerMaster HAF-X Tower Case
