Rise of Persia will come with a free update (Praetorian Guard and Peltasts incoming)

Rise of Persia – the upcoming DLC for Field of Glory II – won’t just feature a tremendous collection of Army Lists from the factions of the period. As always, the DLC’s release will come with a free update improving many elements of the entire franchise, ranging from gameplay mechanics to AI behaviour.

But this time, the update is way juicier than ever. Some of you have asked about the lack of any direct reference to Praetorian Guard units and Peltasts in any Army Lists available. Well, your requests have been answered.

Rise of Persia will add - to the regular game and the other DLCs as well – units like the Praetorian Guard, Praetorian Guard (Late), Greek Peltasts, Thracian Peltasts, Massed Thracian Peltasts, Thracian Spearmen, and several other new units for free! These new units are part of a major army list overhaul affecting Greek, Thracian, 1st-3rd century AD Roman, Sassanid, Parthian, Indo-Parthian, Kushan and Byzantine army lists.

Kudos to the developer for this great work!

So, will there be any way to get these extra units without this DLC? Maybe in the next DLC? Would love to have these units but the period for Rise of Persia have never appealed to me at all...

Great looking units and thank you very much for expanding the old content!

@76mm, As far as I know the new units are automatically added to the effected army lists. You don't need to buy the new dlc to "unlock" units in the army lists from other modules.

Thanks, but honestly the wording of the post above is a bit confusing: "Rise of Persia will add - to the regular game and the other DLCs as well – units like the Praetorian Guard, Praetorian Guard (Late), Greek Peltasts, Thracian Peltasts, Massed Thracian Peltasts, Thracian Spearmen, and several other new units for free!

The wording makes it sounds like Rise of Persia itself, rather than an accompanying free patch, will add the units, but maybe I'm reading it wrong. I hope so because I'll probably pass on this DLC, just don't care for this period...

Ah wording might be confusing indeed.
