Total War: Rome 2 adds Steam Workshop support

A new content update for Total War: Rome 2 deployed over the weekend adds formal Steam Workshop support, while also adding a playable new faction.


A new patch for Total War: Rome 2 went out over the weekend, adding formal mod support through Steam Workshop. Players will be able to share and load their creations through the Total War Launcher, allowing for easy management of single and multiplayer mods.

There are currently 143 mods available, most of which adjust units and tweak turn counts. But fans are already dreaming up new mods, including those based on The Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and even Skyrim mods.

The latest batch of weekly free content also adds a new playable faction: the Seleucid Empire. Players can now select unique Seleucid units, building and technology trees, campaign objectives, and a new wonder: the Paradise of Daphne.

The full list of patch notes is available here.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
