The twelfth free content update for Total War: Rome 2 has been released, and it’s the playable faction of Massilia.


If you have auto updates enabled on Steam, the new content will be downloaded for you upon logging into Steam.

The update contains the free playable faction of Massilia, which was an independent, wealthy trading-state of Greek colonists in the north-western portion of the Mediterranean.

Massilia “embraced” Gallic culture and military techniques.

Available for purchase is the Black Sea Colonies culture pack which adds to the game’s Grand Campaign. It comes with the Cimmeria, Colchis and Pergamom cultures which are of Greek heritage.

It will run you $7.99, but if you pre-order it before the offer expires within an hour, you will get 10% off and pay only $7.19.

A new patch will drop at the same time containing balancing changes to unit strengths based on community feedback.
