Total War: Rome 2 to feature Egyptian faction

Total War: Rome 2, The Creative Assembly's turn-based, real-time hybrid strategy game, will feature a faction in Egypt, the developer announced via press release.

Ptolemy founded Ptolemaic Egypt after the death of Alexander the Great. Because of the subsequent mix of Greek and Egyptian, the faction features pikemen, scythed combatants and war elephants. According to the game's wiki page, the faction is "progressive and forward-looking" and includes "skilled statesman and academics." You can read more about the faction here.

Total War: Rome 2 is slated for Windows PC release later this year. The game currently includes eight factions; Parthia, an Eastern faction in the region of north-eastern Iran, was the most recently announced.
