Om detta material

The Greek States Culture Pack adds a new playable Culture including three new playable Factions to Total War: ROME II; for use in Single or Multiplayer Campaign modes and Custom and Multiplayer Battles.

The Greek States Culture Pack adds diplomatic Athens, shrewd Epirus and formidable Sparta as playable factions. Each offers range of special tactics to achieve cultural and martial victories, and lethal elite units to crush foes in battle.

The Greek States share a number of common goals, philosophies and general diplomatic aims. However, they are defined by their fierce independence and between them demonstrate a huge variety in approach to civil and military challenges that often brings them into conflict with the wider world, and each other.

New Features:

New Playable Factions – Athens, Epirus and Sparta each offer a unique new way to experience the campaign, with their own rosters of powerful military units, distinct traits and play styles.
The Athenian pursuit of enlightenment grants them technological and cultural bonuses; Sparta’s dominance over the Helots allows them to maintain a larger slave population; and Epirus enjoys bonuses to settlement exploitation stemming from their village-confederation origins.

New Cultural Traits – All Greek States benefit from a bonus in battle when defending their own or an allied territory, a bonus to wealth generated by their capitals and an increase to the rate of cultural conversion within their borders.

New Cultural Objectives – Greek States have their own new set of military, economic and cultural victory conditions, as well as sharing a unique set of bonus objectives drawn from Greek history. Additionally, each faction will have to contend with its unique events and dilemmas.

New Military Traditions – Each of the Greek States has a unique top-tier military tradition: Athenian fleets may be honoured as Children of the Aegaean, improving the ramming ability of their ships whilst allowing them to secure more income when raiding; Spartan armies may be remembered as Peers of Leonidas, improving their melee defense capabilities and reducing their upkeep; the armies of Epirus may be feared as Hounds of Molossus, granting them greater charge bonuses whilst allowing them to keep public order problems in check.

New Units:

In addition to the intimidating unit rosters of each faction now playable for the first time, the Greek States Culture Pack introduces a variety of unique and especially elite and deadly forces.

Mercenary Veteran Hoplites – [available to all playable factions]
From glistening spear points to earth-shaking tread, a phalanx is a sight and sound to inspire dread. With these veteran hoplites, that dread is sold to the highest bidder.

Thureos Hoplites – [Available to Athens]
While the linen breastplates worn by these men may look flimsy, they are cool, practical and surprisingly tough. As with all hoplites, the men inside are also practical and tough warriors.

Thorax Hoplites – [Unique to Athens]
These heavy hoplites are marked by their bronze breastplate armour, a sign of wealth and status. They are armed with spears and hoplon shields, and use the phalanx formation to batter enemies into submission.

Agrianian Axemen – [Unique to Epirus and Macedon]
The Paeonian tribe of Agrianes are fierce fighters. As well as terrible killing tools, their axes are also climbing hooks for rough terrain. No sensible general would not use them in an assault.

Aspis Companion Cavalry – [Unique to Epirus and Macedon]
A king’s companions in battle are his nobles and esteemed friends. It is an honour to be a companion, to ride forth with javelin and kopis to fight for your lord and master.

Heroes of Sparta – [Unique to Sparta]
Embodying the spirit of Thermopylae, the Heroes Of Sparta bear their spears and shields with fierce pride and unrivalled mastery.

Polybolos Repeating Scorpion – [Siege Deployable available to all Greek, Roman and Carthaginian factions]
Able to make short work of even the most heavily-armoured opponents, this repeating bolt thrower sacrifices the ordinary Scorpion’s range in return for a rapid rate of fire.

Tortoise Armoured Battering Ram – [Siege Deployable available to all Greek, Roman and Carthaginian factions]
Combining devastating ramming power while affording protection to its crew, used well the Tortoise more than makes up for its lack of speed and manoeuvrability in open ground.

New Buildings:

The Monument of Leonidas – [Unique to Sparta]
A symbol of Sparta’s overridingly martial culture, The Monument of Leonidas brings cost reductions to military recruitment, significantly increases the morale of land units in the province and a global morale boost to existing units.

Oracle of Dodona – [Unique to Epirus]
This sacred grove is the domain of the priests and priestesses of Epirus. The Oracle of Dodona increases provincial happiness, wealth, and the global conversion of other factions to Hellenic culture.

Acropolis – [Unique to Athens]
A symbol of Athenian high culture and engineering excellence, The Acropolis also provides extra garrison forces to Athens, increases tax level, improves the city’s abilities to withstand sieges, and increases Athenian agents’ Authority actions.

Faction History:

Athens
Athens has long been famed for its cultural achievements, from buildings such as the Parthenon, to the plays and works of Aristophanes, Plato, Socrates, and Sophocles. In many ways, Greek culture is defined by Athens. Its military focus has long been its navy; however, continuing the traditions of the classical era, its citizens are also expected to contribute both infantry and cavalry to its armies.

Epirus
Epirus is a Greek kingdom formed of numerous small villages and towns, rather than the great cities of the south. An agriculture and fishing-based society, Epirus nevertheless maintains a balanced army on the Alexandrian model, consisting of cavalry, archers, peltasts, phalangites and war elephants. They also make extensive use of mercenaries from throughout the Greek-speaking world.

Sparta
With every aspect of their lives and society geared towards warfare, Sparta dominated the Greek world and continues to produce arguably the finest soldiers of the Hellenic period. The slaves and non-citizens of Sparta enable their citizens to pursue warrior perfection as soldiers and champions. Trained and hardened in battle, their warriors and leaders are the embodiment of military discipline and virtue.

Kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that you have to pay eight dollars to play as the Greeks, a people who were integral to this history of Rome and antiquity in general. Should have been included for free.

Shame on Creative assembly for all the overpriced and abusive downloadable items.

Total war fans, show your discontent for Creative Assembly's practices !

Note : This is a general criticism of Rome II's marketing scheme, and not DLC specific.

I'm very upset that this was not included in the base game along with the Blood and Gore pack. Regardless, the Faction is very nice and entertaining to play with but not worth the money unless it's on sale. We really need to stop supporting Developers decisions to pull off schemes like this, Sparta should've been included because they're in the Main Campaign. If you want to sell us things you should sell more Campaigns and factions not present in the campaign originally.

I only got this because I prepaid for Rome 2 before it came out. My honest opinion is that it is not worth the 7,49. I don't get why I have to pay extra for this when the game is already very expensive. This so-called DLC should be inside the price in the first place. I don't know what they were thinking. This won't help their cause.

I love playing as the Greek states. This doesn't add much that should not have been all ready in the game. The first Rome game allowed you to play so many factions and that was one of the best thing about it. Creative Assembly seem to have taken a different approach now seen as they release 80% of the game for about €50. Then you have to pay extra for the other parts in the form of DLC. I bet Attilla will be no different. Well on their way to being the next EA.

The Greek States pack is clearly cut-content, ready in time for release, carrying factions that many people wanted and would expect to be part of the default game. They were cut out just to be sold and entice people, a shady move at best. At release, Epirus was also not much of a faction. Sparta’s traits are also backwards, as they should have increased slave difficulty alongside their improved industry/agriculture from it. Their reliance on slaves was a difficulty for their system and part of what prevented them from actually taking to campaign outside of Greece. Epirus is also historically part of the Successors, and should be under their heading in the game, not the Greek States.

While I agree that these factions should have been included in the base game, they are very well done, and very pleasing to play as. There are some things to watch for, such as Macedon declaring war on Sparta on turn one despite having a defensive alliance.

In conclusion, I would suggest buying this DLC on sale, like I did, because $8 is not worth it, even though this is good content.

I agree with many players: This game is gouging it's community with DLC, and they are about to do the same thing with Attila. Purposely witholding factions which are star attractions is a pretty shady method of DLC. Greek states were a primary appeal to playing Rome, and Rome 2 exploiting this for pre-orders was a big slap in the face to the players. Attila will be doing the same with the viking factions.

Politics aside, the factions in this DLC actually have their own unique units and experience, and can justify the money you spend. The units and design of these factions are different enough to be enjoyed as it's own experience instead of just paying to fly a new flag over their head.

That said, Sparta can be dissapointing without mods. They justify putting "bullet helmets" on all their troops by using the historically accurate excuse, but then want to put restrictions on the amount of Spartan units you can have based on the idea their "better" troops. Anyone who knows anything about Greek history knows they are picking and choosing according to Era. If we can't have the impressive Spartans and look of older periods, such as the new DLC, why are we forced to treat them as if they are special?

I recommned this, but only barely. 6/10

Good dlc if you preorded the game but the truth is that it's not worth 7.5€ for just 3 extra factions, maybe a price of 3-4€ could be better for someone that REALLY wants these factions.

So they took something that should have been in the game originally, then made it DLC and price it at 7.99? What has everyone else on this review board been drinking?

I do recommend this but ONLY because it is good and people should see that when they look if they want to buy it. This however does not mean I am any happier about them ripping this DLC from the original game and then making it an add on for more money. I didn't pay $60 to not get the full deal.

It's okay. Sparta is pretty cool and so is Athens but Epirus just feels like a reskinned Macedon. Not worth $7.99 though so wait for a 75% off sale like I did.
