The latest patch for Total War: Rome 2 has gone live, PC Gamer reports, and Creative Assembly have packed it chock full of goodies. In addition to Steam Workshop support for the game, allowing players to easily utilize Rome 2‘s growing collection of weird and wonderful mods, patch 5 also introduces the Seleucid Empire – which is not, as I originally thought, a bobtail squid, but is in fact an empire comprising much of Babylon and its surrounding regions.

As you no will no doubt expect, you can learn more about the new faction on the Total War Wiki. You might find a bit more substance though, by checking out the patch notes.

Another article? I bet those who keep complaining are going to explode. Best solution, get over it. Popular game, lots of hype, you got disappointed, it got even more PR because of it. Don’t Justin Beiber it as it has little care for your exaggerated views.

Now to the content at hand. Cool, but I want patches that will improve diplomacy, internal politics and maybe release a family tree.

 

I personally dont like the Steam workshop especially when there are already heavily used Mod pages already like Total War Centre where all mod devs already put their stuff. I mean it does make it easier to install etc for those who don’t know where to place the files.

Can you remove a mod from Steam workshop added to your game or do you have to redownload it each time still?

 

timmytim,

With that attitude I’m glad that they sold you a broken product because you seem to be happy about it. Maybe GON should do some real journalism for a change instead of Regurgitating PC Gamers shit.

Pretty sure given how the patching is working at the moment you’ll have to re download it every time. If you don’t the game crashes and become inoperable. There’s a lot of complaints about it on TWCenter. I agree though TWCenter has always been better for this function. Steam Workshop just dosen’t work for this title.

gammad,

Bit of a silly comment really. Obviously GON doesn’t have the journalist resources of some other gaming sites and as such have to lift some articles to maintain a wide scope

 

I don’t get what’s wrong with mirroring an article. GoN provide links to the originals and give them credit. Half GoN’s problem is timezone, everything happens while they are finally playing games or asleep.

As for Total War if you have issues with it that’s fine. No need to chuck the baby out with the bathwater though…

My thoughts exactly.

Also, GammaD why do you bother even playing this game considering that you have been very clear since the game was announced that you intended to dislike it? Myself, I have over 100 hours on it now and am having a great deal of fun despite its flaws.

FYI this actually came out as a press release so PC Gamer is just re-printing what PR sent to them.

We got the same press release but because of time zones we ended up getting it after we’d sourced the news from PC Gamer.
