Total War: Rome 2 modding is a go with the release of the Assembly Kit

Total War: Rome II

Who would win in a fight, the Romans or the Zerg? Till now it’s only been a fight in the cinema of the mind. Now it can be in the cinema of the… can a mouse click be a cinema? I’m thoroughly confused on that front. Let’s just say if the finger were a projector and the mouse button were a screen then the distance in between is… Creative Assembly have released mod tools for Rome 2!

If you’re having a hard time understanding the excitement, you ought to check out our Total War: Rome 2 review.

The release of the mod tools goes hand in hand with the Steam Workshop support that’s been added to Rome 2. Now, if you’re of the mod making variety, you can add new units, animations, textures, campaign maps, AI code, etc etc.

Hopefully we’ll see mods that do everything from adding new factions to altering the abilities and stats of current factions to further specialise the game’s European states. On top of that, I want to see silliness – party hats for war pigs, confetti explosions for siege weapons, and C&C’s Mammoth Tank.

You can learn more about the tools by reading through the Total War wiki. Also, there’s a quick mod making guide on the forums.
