There's more Germanic blood to be split in Total War: Rome II as Creative Assembly unveil the Suebi faction, nestled to the North East of Gaul across the Rhine. They'll have centurions trembling.
These Suebi are masters of "forest warfare and plunder," much like the other Germanic hordes. They wear their disdain of outsiders openly, making it harder to 'tame' those they conquer.
The other Germanic faction revealed was the Arveni, and the only other confirmed playable barbarian civilization are the Iceni in Britain. Two more faction reveals remain.
"The Suebi are an indomitable Germanic culture dwelling to the north east of Gaul. Not a single people, but rather numerous tribes sharing a common language and similar religious beliefs, they frequently raid their Gallic neighbours across the Rhine," reads the description of the Suebi.
"Under the right leadership, The Suebi have the potential to unite to a single purpose, and Britannia, Gaul, and Iberia could easily be swept away under the weight of their numbers…"
"Like other Germanic factions, the Suebi are masters of forest warfare and plunder. Stemming from a confederation of smaller Germanic tribes, they have a diplomatic edge when dealing with other barbarians and excel at fighting lesser tribes who dare to stand in their way. They feel disdain for outsiders, civilised cultures and other barbarians alike, and must contend with considerable resistance from those whom they conquer."
Total War: Rome II releases on PC this October.
