Second Total War: Rome 2 patch out now

Includes over 100 changes and fixes.

The Creative Assembly has released the much-anticipated second patch for strategy game Total War: Rome 2.

It addresses a raft of technical and performance issues as well as AI pathfinding problems, and includes over 100 fixes.

A new "Limited" option has been added to the "Show AI Player Moves" settings in single-player and multiplayer campaign modes. This lets the player see all movement of enemy factions, all movement within the players regions and all movement within sea that the player has ports in during the AI turns.

The patch makes a number of usability improvements, gameplay improvements and balance tweaks. Infantry run speed, charge speed and acceleration in battles has been reduced, for example.

The patch notes are live now on the Total War wiki. The patch will be applied to your game upon restarting.

Patch three enters beta testing soon, The Creative Assembly said, and it will bring changes to battle gameplay and further improvements for specific hardware configurations.
