The Macedonians have been revealed as the next playable faction for Total War: Rome 2. A shot of the Shield Bearers infantry unit is below. In the game, the Hellenistic nation yearns “to return to the glory-days of Alexander The Great,” but it is hemmed in by other Greek city-states which aren’t very trusting of Macedon due to its past; therefore, players will have to “work hard to forge local alliances.” You can find out more on the faction through the newly updated Total War wiki. Five more factions are yet to be revealed, if the webpage is any indication.
