Sega has revealed the seventh playable faction for Rome 2 Total War as Parthia. Information and screenshot below.
Parthia will be included in the upcoming Total War Rome 2 as the 7th playable faction to be revealed. Previously announced factions are Rome, Carthage, Macedon, Iceni Arverni and Suebi factions.
Here is an excerpt from the Total War Wiki, that will give you an idea of what to expect from the Parthia tribe.
“A confederation of tribes, Parthia is famed for its horses, nomadic horse-archers and heavy cavalry, the latter developing distinctive bronze or iron scaled armour which covers both horse and rider. For its infantry it relies on ethnic Persian/Iranian hillmen, spear and skirmisher units and sometimes mercenaries, armed and drilled in the Seleucid fashion.”
There is a screenshot of some of the faction’s units below, but you can get the full details and info by watching our video below.
