Parthia is the newest faction in Total War: Rome II

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.

You'd think Creative Assembly would have checked that?
I'm hoping someone mods Asterix and Obelix into the game
Et tu, Brute?
It'll have Steam Controller support too
Blood & Gore DLC
Veni, Vidi, Sustínui
It's just a flesh wound
The Battle of the Nile
Plus a ludicrous panorama
The battles are indeed awesome
