The latest faction for Total War: Rome 2 has been revealed the “independent, powerful” Egypt. These successors to Alexander The Great’s legacy and the rulers of Ptolemaic Egypt bring “Hellenistic fighting prowess to north Africa, with serried ranks of fearsome pikemen, devastating scythed war-chariots and terrifying war-elephants.” Yikes. Despite their prowess in batt;e, though, they are also well-versed in statecraft and diplomacy, so know thine enemy etc. You can find out more on the Egyptian faction through the game’s wiki. Rome 2 is expected sometime in 2013 for PC.
