About the Imperator Augustus Caign Pack
The Imperator Augustus Caign Pack is a new playable caign for ROME II, which rivals the original ROME II Grand Caign in both scope and scale. This caign comes as part of Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition and is available as a free, automatic update to existing owners of Total War: ROME II.
The Imperator Augustus Caign Pack is set in 42 BC during the chaotic aftermath of Caesars grisly murder. The republic remains whole, but its soul is divided as three great men, the members of the Second Triumvirate, hold the future of Rome in the palms of their hands.
Octavian, Caesars adoptive son and the heir to his legacy.
Marc Antony, Caesars loyal friend and most trusted lieutenant.
Lepidus, Pontifex Maximus of Rome and the man who secured Caesars dictatorship.
With the territories of The Republic divided between them and the military might of Rome at their beck-and-call, the members of The Second Triumvirate are each in a position to make a bid for leadership, and rule Rome as its first and only emperor.
However, external forces are on the move, looking to exploit the instability of Rome and expand their own territories. Will you fight as a defender of Rome and defeat the other members of the Triumvirate? Or lead another faction on a caign of conquest and expansion, and take advantage of the chaos as the Roman civil war rages?
Players may embark on a new Caign as one of the following playable factions:
Armenia (also now playable in the ROME II Grand Caign).
