Empire: Total War DLC Brings Elite Reinforcements

Empire: Total War has received its first downloadable content in 'Elite Units of the West,' adding fourteen of the 18th century's fanciest fighting forces to the PC strategy title.

Units on offer include the Legion of the United States, France's Swiss Guard, Prussian "professional scoundrels" the Frei-Korps, and Russia's Gardes a cheval--"selected not for their soldiering ability but more for their relative attractiveness to Catherine the Great."


A comprehensive Empire: Total War patch released on Monday added a free fourteen other less-elite new units, in addition to a bumper crop of performance and bug fixes.

Elite Units of the West is available now through Steam for the small sum of $3.49.
