Bonus units update - Empire total War

On xboxlive this would of cost money. I laugh.

Quote:
The aim of the free units is to increase the graphical and unit variety of several factions rosters. We will also be using them to introduce more balance variety between factions as well. Some are new, some are replacement for existing units in some factions rosters. There will be 11 free units that have brand new models and textures, there are also several units that already exist in-game but are not used in the release version that are being added into rosters, and some factions will be gaining access to units they currently cannot get.

Badass. I had buggy sound in this game until a recent hotfix took care of it. There are already some killer looking units, so this only adds to that.

Bit more info on the units

Quote:
The new units are a combination of new and replacement units. Some of the generic units in the game will be replaced with faction specific special units. These units will give individual factions a more unique feel on the battlefield and less of a generic army. So, as an example where you get a standard guard unit across all factions, several factions will now have their own unique version, with unique uniforms and attributes (Like reload time and morale etc.).

We’ve also given several factions access to units that are already in the game. So for example, The Dutch and Swedish factions can now access the Hussars unit. Something they were unable to do previously.

In total there is one brand new unit, ten unique replacement units and four existing units ‘unlocked’ for other factions.

This brings the total amount of newly accessible content to 15 units across the playable factions. These units are separate from the special forces edition, and pre-order units.

These units are indeed free and will be released shortly via Steam as a thank you to all our players. We’ll be releasing details on individual units over time via our forums.
