Total War: Rome 2’s first playable faction has been revealed as the Romans and SEGA has said more factions will be revealed in the “coming weeks and months.” The strategy title will feature Greco-Roman, Barbarian, and Eastern cultures, each with its own agents and political system. Faction trees will represent civic, military and engineering disciplines, with each civilization facing internal dilemmas. Certain factions such as Rome, will be split into a number of playable families each with unique benefits which can be applied to their base faction traits. Total war: Rome 2 is expected sometime in 2013 for PC. More on the SEGA blog.
