One piece of PDXCON news missed from yesterday: Imperator: Rome is getting a free Punic Wars Content Pack along with the upcoming Livy Update.

Paradox Development Studio sure are busy. Not only are they working on multiple Stellaris expansionsCrusader Kings III and Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance they're also trying to turn around the rough launch of Imperator: Rome. Another big free patch is coming out named Livy which will include: a new character experience system, a rework of the family system, a procedurally generated mission system, a map with greater details including showing war on the map with burning cities and more not yet announced. It's going to be big!

Not stopping there, the free Punic Wars Content Pack was also fully announced and you can see their fancy announcement trailer for that below:

Feature Highlight:

  • Roman Mission Pack: Ten unique mission trees for the star of Imperator: Rome to guide your conquest of Italy and neighboring regions.
  • Carthaginian Mission Pack: Ten unique mission trees for the children of Tyre to help you plan your mercantile and military dominance of Africa, Spain and the rest of the west.
  • Numidian Unit Model: New army model for the Numidians, North Africans often hired as mercenaries by larger powers.
  • Carthaginian Ship Model: A unique ship design for Carthaginian navies.
  • New Music: Three additional music tracks to soothe your conquering soul.

They're putting a huge amount of effort into basically rebuilding Imperator, something I definitely plan to go back to and have another proper go of once this update and content pack are out as it sounds quite good. That is, once you can pull me away from exploring space in Stellaris.

Currently Imperator is on sale too with 33% off across Humble Store, GOG and Steam to celebrate PDXCON.

Pubic wars, those are the frickin' worst.

"You clogged up the drain!"

"No, YOU clogged up the drain!"
