...? Why Sega and paradox? RTS games have always had expansions because it's a system that works best for games that are designed around being inherently replayable ad infinitum. In their usual games Sega rarely does DLC (just the usual cosmetics you always see in JRPGs now). EA (with stuff like sims 4 which would cost like £400 for all dlc) or Ubisoft who add tons of pointless DLC into every game now and constantly shove it in your face, seem much worse. Not to mention the predatory practices of a lot of mobile games.
For me, the best is Shogun 2
This seems like a pretty decent deal considering the price on steam at present. I've heard this is the best Total War game ever. Is that true?
I swear Sega and Paradox have the worst DLC ethics in gaming.
It's the base game bundled with the Eight Princes DLC. They bundle them usually for retail versions, probably also for re-release plugs as well. eg, Total War Warhammer Savage Edition came out in July, for a four year old game, with a nice new physical box and two out of eight dlcs.
