Empire: Total War DLC Out - Pay Up!

By Published June 26, 2009 at 4:00 pm

SEGA has jumped aboard Microsoft's golden money-for-DLC bandwagon, and they extend their hand to you for cash.  Empire: Total War, a game that has a solid count of fundamental flaws that have the ability to 'borify' a game, has finally come out with Downloadable Content. 



No - it doesn't fix any glitches (as far as we've been informed).  Let's do some roleplay.  SEGA: We have DLC!  Woohoo!  It adds 14 new unit types for different factions, and also will "add an extra layer to the already in-depth offering that is Empire: Total War."  (Quote: Mark O'Connell, E:TW community manager).  YOU, the gamer: SWEET! FREE STUFF TO DOWNLOAD?! (Opens browser).  SEGA: Are you crazy!? It costs $3.50 on Steam!

Oh, SEGA.  Why did you betray the gamers? For those with $3.50, the pack is available on Steam under the name "Elite Units of the West," and has 14 new unit types, available in both multiplayer and singleplayer.  Thanks to Steam, the exact unit descriptions, types, and names are available online here.

Enjoy your content, and try not to encourage SEGA too much!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
