Description






Caesar in Gaul is a standalone campaign pack for Total War: ROME
II covering Julius Caesar’s war of expansion against the Gaulish
tribes. Players can choose from four playable factions in this
conflict: the Gallic Arverni, the Germanic Suebi, the Belgic Nervii
and Rome, in a campaign inspired by Caesar’s Commentarii de bello
Gallico (Commentaries on the Gallic war).

Offering a tighter scope in terms of time and geography than
Rome II (58-51BC), the Caesar in Gaul Campaign Map is an expanded,
more detailed vision of Gaul and the south coast of Britannia.

Compared with ROME II’s map of Gaul, Caesar in Gaul contains
more regions and provinces, more factions (both playable and
non-playable), and a series of famous generals and statesmen from
history which the player will employ or fight against depending on
their chosen faction.

A war of great profit and glory for Caesar, this conflict made
him extremely popular with the people of Rome… though less so with
the senators, who saw him gathering power to himself in a series of
events that ultimately lead to his ascension to Dictator.

Caesar in Gaul differs from the core ROME II experience in a
number of important ways:

New Campaign Map:
The Caesar in Gaul campaign map is an enhanced, more detailed
representation of Gaul, with players able to expand across 18
provinces dotted with resources, new settlements and new provincial
capitals.

Greater focus on characters:
Many factions employ great generals and statesmen from history (for
example, Rome fields Gaius Julius Caesar himself, Mark Anthony and
others). Each of the four playable factions also has a faction
leader who acts as the player’s avatar during the campaign.

24 turns per year:
As Caesar in Gaul deals with a considerably shorter time-span
(58-51BC) than the grand sweep of the ROME II campaign, each turn
represents two weeks rather than a year. This means seasons make a
return. The gameplay effects of these aren’t always predictable
however, and may vary from province to province. A late autumn may
bring a good harvest for example, but a long, dry summer may damage
your food production.

Compact, focussed multiplayer campaign:
For those generals looking for a more rapid MP campaign game,
Caesar in Gaul presents a series of interesting options. Due to the
geographic scope and the opposing 48 factions, co-op or competitive
2-player campaigns are tighter, more focussed, and less
time-consuming than a full Campaign.

New mid-game challenge mechanics:
For those players making it through to the mid-game, there will be
new challenges to face as a more suitable replacement for the Civil
Wars of ROME II. As a Gallic tribe, you’ll feel the mailed fist of
Rome respond with heavy intervention forces, and as Rome, you’ll
see the Gallic tribes rebelling and forming alliances against
you.

New historical battle:
Caesar in Gaul adds the Battle of Alesia as a playable historical
battle. Alesia marked the turning point of Caesar’s Gallic War, and
resulted in the capture of Vercingetorix, who was later taken to
Rome and executed at Caesar’s Triumph.

Set from Caesar’s perspective, Alesia tasks the player with
maintaining the siege of Vercingetorix’s Gallic stronghold. The
battle begins with the Roman forces deployed within their own
investment fortifications outside the hill-fort. The player must
guide the Romans as they weather attacks from both a huge relief
army and within the fort itself.

New Total War: ROME II full campaign playable
factions:

Alongside the factions playable within the new Campaign, Caesar in
Gaul also adds three new playable factions to the main game; they
are:

  • Nervii (barbarian, Belgic)
    The most fierce and powerful of the Belgic tribes, the Nervii are a
    melting pot of Celtic and Germanic heritage. Their unit roster
    reflects this mix of cultures, opening up the possibility of
    creating new, unique army compositions.
  • Boii (barbarian, Gallic)
    One of the largest of the Gallic tribes, the Boii occupied
    Cisalpine-Gaul, Pannonia, Bohemia and Transalpine Gaul. Their
    numbers make them a force to be reckoned with but they are somewhat
    disconnected from other the Gallic tribes geographically and are
    directly exposed to the ferocious Germanic clans and the
    Dacians.
  • Galatians (barbarian, Anatolia)
    The Gauls of the East, the Galatians migrated to Asia Minor
    following the Celtic invasion of the Balkans. They arrived through
    Thracia at around 270 BC, led by generals Lotarios & Leonnorios. As
    Celts deep within Hellenic territory and factions hostile towards
    them, the Galatians offer interesting and challenging new
    gameplay.

New units:
Alongside their usual unit rosters, the playable factions of Caesar
in Gaul (and playable factions in the main ROME II campaign
provided by Caesar in Gaul ownership) also gain the following new
units:

  • Boii (ROME II)
    • Sword Followers (sword infantry)
      Where a lord commands, the sword is thrust.
    • Veteran Spears (spear infantry)
      Battle hardens the sinews and the heart, and deafens the ear to the
      cries of cowards.
  • Galatians (ROME II)
    • Galatian Legionaries (sword infantry)
      The Celts have taught the Romans more than they’re prepared to
      admit, but this is a two-way street.
    • Galatian Raiders (javelin and sword cavalry)
      Broken enemies know it is better to flee than face riders who will
      not spare their lives.
  • Gallic tribes (ROME II and Caesar in Gaul)
    • Chosen Swordsmen (sword infantry)
      These men fight with proven bravery and well-honed
      skill-at-arms.
    • Chosen Spearmen (spear infantry)
      Chainmail does not chill a warrior’s heart, or still his lust for
      battle.
    • Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry)
      The skills of the hunt, hiding and a sudden strike, are the skills
      of a warrior.
  • Nervii (ROME II and Caesar in Gaul)
    • Fierce Swords (sword infantry)
      Once he has earned it, a Celt will only be parted from his
      longsword by death itself.
    • Guerilla Swordsmen (stealth sword infantry)
      These swordsmen strike wherever and whenever their enemies least
      expect.
    • Mighty Horse (spear cavalry)
      A strong mount and a savage swing make these warriors a fearsome
      prospect.
    • Naked Spears (spear infantry)
      Who needs clothes when you have more than your share of
      courage?
    • Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry)
      The skills of the hunt, hiding and a sudden strike, are the skills
      of a warrior.
  • Auxiliaries
    • Auxiliary Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry)
      The skills of a hunter should be used in the service of Rome.
    • Auxiliary Noble Horse(spear cavalry)
      A mounted, armoured fist is always useful in a Roman army.
    • Auxiliary Naked Swords (sword infantry)
      The savage gods of war should be used to Rome’s advantage.
    • Auxiliary Short Swords (sword infantry)
      Bravery in battle, rather than skill, sometimes gives worth to a
      man.
  • Mercenaries
    • Mercenary Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry)
      The hunting of other men often has the greatest of rewards.
    • Mercenary Noble Horse (spear cavalry)
      Even a nobleman has his price, and will fight for gold.
    • Mercenary Naked Swords (sword infantry)
      The gods of war will bless mercenaries as long as they fight
      bravely.
    • Mercenary Short Swords (sword infantry)
      It is often enough to sell bravery and a taste for glory.
