You have to buy DLC to get blood in this game.

Literally DLC to add blood in a game with giant sword battles.

Blood is not included in the main game so they can get a lower rating and sell the same version everywhere. Total War games never had blood until the Blood DLC for Shogun 2.

Then it should be free.

You can download a mod that adds blood in for free right now if you want. I've had it for a while.

This looks more advanced (as far as decapitations and stuff) but yeah.

@krullban: Except for the fact that any kid could download it if it was free. I do think it should be like $1 though.

I find it hard to care though when they already gave away the first DLC for free (for a limited time) to apologize for the launch. Although, I don't hate the concept of DLC like some people do. The game functions just a well without blood.

How much?

How much?

The amount of blood you get should be proportional to what you pay.

That's their excuse yes, Shogun 2 blood DLC was 99 cents now it's 2 dollars and 99 cents which begs to differ that it was infact their plan all along.

You can say excuse but just so you know all the Total War games have been blood and gore free on release. It's the direction the series has taken from the jump. The first mod that comes out for all of them is a blood mod.

Which you can find for Rome II as well by the way.

Not thrilled with this DLC but I also don't need to buy it and it's a different feature than the series usually has.

You've told me nothing, yet the spike in price tells me everything I need to know.
