Anyone who preorders the strategy game from participating retailers will also receive the Greek States Culture Pack at launch, which adds three additional factions--Epirus, Athens, and Sparta--to the game. Sega says that playing as Sparta will present a "considerable" challenge even to advanced Total War players.

Additionally, a single run of 22,000 Total War: Rome II Collector's Editions will be sold, featuring a numbered (via laser-etching) steelbook case, a tabula set, tesserae dice, a set of the Total War Cards: Punic Wars card game, a canvas map, and an assembly kit for a 26cm x 12cm x 12cm Roman Onager siege catapult. The Collector's Edition of Total War: Rome II will cost $154.99/£109.99.

Free day-one DLC will also be available for the game at launch in the form of a ninth playable faction, Pontus.

Alongside Total War: Rome II, UK developer Creative Assembly is also working on MOBA-inspired spin-off Total War: Arena, and a new game set in the Aliens universe.
