Imperator Augustus Campaign trailer released.

Total War: Rome 2 - Emperor Edition launches on 16th September 2014 for PC and Mac, Sega has announced.

The Emperor Edition comes with the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack DLC, which is free to all current players of the strategy game. A new trailer for the DLC is below.

Imperator Augustus adds hundreds of hours of gameplay across a new map based on the Second Triumvirate War, which saw Octavian, Marc Antony and Lepidus vying to become the very first Emperor of Rome. You can tackle the campaign as various Roman and non-Roman factions, including Armenia for the first time.

It also includes a tweaked politics system, overhauled building chains, rebalanced battles and better visuals in campaign and battle.
