About Divide et Impera

Divide et Impera is a total overhaul of Total War: Rome 2 that seeks to provide a challenging, historically authentic, realistic experience of the ancient world and warfare. As a team, we believe modding is an important part of Total War games that adds significantly to their immersion and longevity. Our focus is improving gameplay, adding core features and increasing challenge and realism by expanding Rome 2 with new concepts and creative systems that turn it into a different sort of experience. 

Mod Information

The best way to experience all of the changes in the mod is to jump right in. It is almost impossible to have a summary of everything in the mod that has been added since our founding in 2013. Some highlights include a custom reforms system, custom population system, custom supply system, completely new battle AI and system, all custom rosters from the ground up (over 2000 units), custom building system, and a thousand other changes.
