Total War: Rome 2 will be invaded by Suebi tribesmen

The latest faction joining the roster of warring groups in Total War: Rome 2 is the Suebi, barbarian tribespeople of the forests of Germania, Sega revealed today.

The Suebi are numerous tribes joined together under a common, shared language and similar religious beliefs. Suebi warriors are only lightly equipped with weapons, using a javelin-like spear called the "framea," shields and basic cloaks as armor.

This latest playable faction joins the Macedonians, Roman Republic and Carthage, previously revealed as factions in the upcoming game. Total War: Rome 2 will launch on PC in October 2013.
