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.
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.
