The Creative Assembly have announced free day one DLC for their upcoming title, Total War: Rome II.
Players will be able to download the free DLC through Steam, which offers Pontus as a ninth faction available in the full game.
The Creative Assembly have released a statement on the Pontus faction.
Hailing from the mountainous lands around the Black Sea, The Kingdom of Pontus is distinctly eastern in outlook and attitude. Resolute in battle and feared for its swift, deadly scythed chariots, Pontus stands poised to sweep South into the Arabian Lands, or West, to threaten Asia and Greece.
Keep it tuned for Total War: Rome II‘s official release date very soon, until then the game is expected during the second half of 2013 exclusively for PC.
