Developer: Creative Assembly

Publisher: Sega

The Desert Kingdoms Culture Pack introduces four new playable factions to Total War: ROME II. The Kingdoms of Kush, Saba and Nabatea fall under the African/Arabian subculture, while the Masaesyli are of Numidian origin. These factions are native to the deserts of Africa and Arabia. Surviving these harsh environmental conditions has forged them into hardy warriors who use the shifting desert sands to their advantage in battle. While culturally similar, each faction boasts unique new unit rosters which offer different military strengths. Each faction also has new building chains and technology trees, playing to their strengths and further differentiating their playstyles.

Total War: ROME II - Desert Kingdoms Reviews

The Desert Kingdoms Culture Pack is an interesting DLC for Total War: ROME II and, even though it is recommendable for those who are attracted to the civilizations involved, it feels conservative and innovation-lacking.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

<i><b>Desert Kingdoms</b></i> is full of good ideas, but it lacks depth. Especially when you know that modders have already done a very good job on some cultures in the pack. And for free.

A varied and interesting Culture Pack where each faction feels distinct.
