Parthia is the newest faction in Total War: Rome II

0

Parthians, not Protheans. Big difference.

It's time for another faction to be announced for Creative Assembly's upcoming strategy title Total War: Rome II. This time, it's the little-known Parthians that will be joining the fray. Formed from a confederation of tribes east of the Mediterranean, the Parthians were a blend of Persian and Hellenic peoples that challenged Rome, as well as the Greek/Macedonian armies.

From the info on the Total War wiki, it seems like the Parthians will play in a style that fuses spearmen and cavalry. I've always liked a fast and mobile option in my strategy games, so the Parthians are appealing to me here. Hopefully there will be a firm release date announced along with the final faction reveal.
