Rome 2 Total War: Arverni playable faction revealed - screen

Joins Rome, Carthage, Macedon and Iceni

Sega has announced the Arverni as the fifth playable faction in Rome 2: Total War.

Joining the Roman, Carthage, Macedon and Iceni factions previously revealed, Arverni is profiled on the Total War Wiki. Here's an excerpt:

Descended from a long line of Celts, the warlike Arverni are one of the most powerful tribes of central Gaul. Far more than mere barbarian looters and raiders, they have a complex and sophisticated culture centred at Nemossos, their stronghold near the Gergov.


The Rome 2: Total War release date has reportedly been set for October 2013, although Sega's officially announced launch window for the game is simply late next year.

CVG visited Creative Assembly last June for an exclusive first look at the sequel. You can read every detail in our Rome 2: Total War preview and our Rome 2: Total War interview with lead designer James Russell.
