Europa Barbarorum II Released



After seven years of development, the first version of the highly anticipated Europa Barbarorum II has been released. EB2 re-creates the Roman Era in the Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms and is one of the most polished and feature-rich Total War mods of recent times. 28 factions have been created from scratch with hundreds of units added to a mod where historical accuracy is vital.

The original Europa Barbarorum I for Rome: Total War was downloaded well over 100,000 times. Unlike EB1, the individual soldiers inside each unit in EB2 are independently represented to a much greater extent with different shields, armour, and faces. The Medieval II engine allows for a more immersing experience as a result with individual army units being less like clones of one another. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Europa Barbarorum II features. Don't delay in downloading the mod right now!
