Appropriately titled "Blood and Gore," this DLC addition focuses on improving the brutality of combat in Total War: Rome 2. New sound and particle effects have been added alongside "hundreds of gruesome animations." According to Sega, both soldiers and the ground they fight on will now become increasingly spattered with blood and pieces of former people as combat rages on.
As you'd expect, this bloody deluge earns the DLC an "M for Mature" rating. If that doesn't turn you off, you can feed your sadistic desires by purchasing the Blood and Gore DLC from Steam for $3.
Employing a more refined particle system than Shogun 2, Blood & Gore for ROME II looks and feels grittier and more brutal. Gore coats combatants, the ground will become soaked with blood, and you'll hear every stab, slash and impact with bespoke new sound effects.
Blood & Gore is available now for ROME II on Steam for $2.99 USD, £1.99 GBP, €2.49 EUR, $3.99 AUD, 69p. RUB, R$4.99 BRL, and is rated ESRB Mature 17+, PEGI 18+, COB MA 15+. Click here for further details.
