What is the Total War: Rome II Enemy at the Gates Edition?
Total War: Rome II allows players to take the helm of one of the history’s greatest superpowers, and the Enemy at the Gates Edition is the definitive way to experience it all.
The economy, the military, and your political persona are all in your hands. Can you steer the once legendary republic though world-altering moments? One wrong turn and you’ll end up with a knife (or 4) in your back.

Empire Divided Campaign Expansion Pack
In the year 270AD, it’s your job to bring the once-mighty republic of Rome back from the brink of total economic collapse. As a result, the empire is in near ruins and bloodthirsty barbarians are eager to claim what’s left. Don’t let Rome go out with a whimper!
