Total War: Rome II has sold over 800,000 copies since launch, Sega announced today as part of its latest earnings report for the six-month period ended September 30.
Creative Assembly's turn-based strategy game was released on September 3 and Sega's fiscal reporting period ended September 30, meaning the milestone was achieved in under a month.
Separately, Sega announced this week the Blood & Gore DLC for Total War: Rome II. It adds "hundreds" of animations for actions like decapitations, dismemberment, and "devastating impalements."
"Gore coats combatants, the ground will become soaked with blood, and you'll hear every stab, slash, and impact with bespoke new sound effects," Sega said. The Blood & Gore DLC is available today for $3.
