SEGA announced today that Caesar in Gaul, the first campaign expansion for Total War: ROME II, is available to download now. According to its description, Caesar in Gaul offers a tighter scope in terms of time and geography than ROME II’s original grand campaign.
Playing as Rome or one of the key barbarian tribes in this seven-year conflict, players will experience a campaign map that represents an expanded, more detailed vision of Gaul and the south coast of Britannia. With multiple turns per year, this expansion also brings seasonal changes, with new gameplay effects and stunning visual alterations.
Caesar in Gaul also offers players a new historical battle to challenge their generalship. The Battle of Alesia, the decisive engagement of Caesar’s war in Gaul, offers a unique tactical situation in which the Romans must survive a twin-pronged onslaught of the massed Gallic forces.
Concurrent with this launch, a new patch bringing important gameplay changes will download automatically via Steam for all ROME II owners.
Caesar in Gaul brings numerous other features, including new units, new mid-game challenge mechanics and a greater focus on historical characters.
