Finally, the release date for the next Total War game is upon us. Rome 2 will see a Sept. 3 worldwide release on Windows PC for $59.99, and as an added plus, pre-order customers will receive the strategy game’s first downloadable content for free, dubbed the Greek Culture pack, composed of Athens, Epirus and Sparta. Eight main playable factions will be available in Rome 2, with a ninth available as a day-one free DLC, as the Pontus.
To add to all the awesomeness, a limited production run of 22,000 individually numbered boxed copies will be available as a $154.99 set set. Packaged in a Steelbook case, it’s numbered with its identification number, along with fancy physical items.
