Total War: Rome II is getting gory but it'll cost you

Blood & Gore DLC

That man seems to have lost his head. Welp.

Tomorrow, Total War: Rome II is getting its Blood & Gore DLC which adds a whole mess of gruesome effects to the game. It's unfortunate that this is a $2.99 download as opposed to being, well, free. Can't say I blame them, though -- people will buy it. I will say that reading thorough the feature list is bringing out my inner psychopath.

  • New blood-spattered front end
  • Graphics option for turning on/off blood
  • Blood VFX on arrow/pilum/javelin impacts
  • Blood VFX on rock/stone impacts
  • Blood VFX on death animations
  • Blood shader on death animations and attackers
  • Decapitation on selected death animations
  • Dismemberment on selected death animations
  • Blood decals on terrain
  • Sound effects for all blood animations

It's not the first time Creative Assembly has done this kind of DLC; Total War: Shogun 2 had a similar add-on pack. It was a bit weird then and it still is.
