Creative Assembly announced a new expansion for Total War: Rome 2 today – Caesar in Gaul. It seems like one of those classic good news/bad news situations though. For example – taking place during Caesar’s Gallic war, this expansion covers the years 58-51BC. How is that good news? Because a year is now 24 turns. Seasons actually matter!

On the other hand, the new historical battle added is the Battle of Alesia, wherein Caesar laid siege to the fortress of Vercingetorix, before capturing him and dragging him back to Rome. Yes, you get to enjoy the historical wonder of smashing a hole in a wall and then watching your men inexplicably throw torches at a door just like they did back in history times!

Bitching about Rome 2 aside, it does sound pretty neat. You can play as the Averni, the Nervii, the Suebi or Rome and naturally the new Gallic map is significantly more detailed and intricate than it was in the base game, with new factions and regions and a slew of new generals and politicians. If you’d like the full run down of what is available you can check out the official announcement. Caesar in Gaul will cost $14.99 (it’s currently 10% off on Steam) when it is released on December 12th.

Getafix ftw!

 

I got a real kick out of finding all the towns I first learned about reading Asterix in the original RTW. They even had a little fishing village on the game map exactly where it was on the map that came in the books.

 

Although one could argue that this should’ve been included in the base game, I do hope they do the same sort of DLC with Alexander. That would be epic
