Total War: Rome II will be out everywhere on September 3rd. The collector's edition comes with a replica catapult! The first slice of DLC—which offers up the three additional factions of Epirus, Athens and Sparta—is free if you pre-order. So, render unto Caesar… this is madness, etc.
And again a game with 0-day DLC content. Of course you can have that for free if you pre-order without any testing, previews and reviews. We all now how well that worked out for SimCity, Aliens: Colonial Marines and.... well almost every pre-orerable title in the past 4 years.
The industry just won't stop shafting it's customers.
