Rome 2: Fourth faction revealed

Iceni is "a violent tribe from the south of Britain"

Sega has announced Iceni as the fourth playable faction in Rome 2: Total War.


Joining the Roman, Carthage and Macedon factions revealed in the last month, the British tribe is profiled on the Total War Wiki. Here's an excerpt:

A proud and violent tribe from the south of Britain, their striking body-paint sets them apart from other barbarian factions, and they are renowned for their use of highly manoeuvrable chariots in battle. Quick and eager to anger, the more warfronts they engage on the happier their population becomes.

A few months ago it was reported that the Rome 2: Total War release date has been set for October 2013, although Sega's officially announced launch window for the game is simply 'late 2013'.
