SEGA announces Hannibal at the Gates
is the next Campaign Pack for Total War: ROME II
historical strategy sequel. This is expected for release on May 27th, and they
are already accepting
. In the meantime, here's
a reveal trailer
(animal cruelty warning), and here's word:
Total War: ROME II’s second major Campaign DLC is incoming on March 27th!
Dropping players into the Western Mediterranean at the outbreak of the 2nd Punic
War, Hannibal at the Gates features a new campaign map focused on the tinderbox
geopolitical situation that brought two ancient world superpowers to all-out
war; with sworn rivals Scipio and Hannibal at the very heart of the conflict.
Five playable factions will feature a wealth of new units. Main protagonists
Rome and Carthage will benefit from a new civil tech tree based around
diplomacy, while the challenge in the shadow of these mighty empires for
newcomers Syacuse, the Arevaci and the Lusitani will be formidable.
“ROME II was hugely ambitious for our studio,” said Mike Simpson, Creative
Director at CA, “We do regret that some reviewers and core fans didn’t get
everything they wanted from it. We are committed to improving and adding to the
game over the coming months; we very much want ROME II to be remembered as one
of our best.”
