Total War: Rome Remastered is out now, giving the old strategy classic a fresh coat of paint alongside a good number of other modern improvements. Somewhat surprisingly, it also doesn't suffer from a shortage of mods, some of the best ones appearing less than a day after its release.
Launching with Steam Workshop support likely helped the best Total War: Rome Remastered mods see the light of day so quickly. That's, obviously, a good thing, since it means that work on introducing missing features and expanding upon existing ones is already underway.
Our list of the best Total War: Rome Remastered mods includes some that get us closer to having multiplayer campaigns, others that expand the map, but also one of the first total overhauls. You can check them out below.
- Hotseat Mod
- Barbarian Invasion: Naval Battles
- Total Conquest
- Original Wonder Videos
- RTR: Imperium Surrectum - Teaser
- The Walking People
Although it's not quite the multiplayer campaign fans have been asking for since Rome Remastered was announced, the Hotseat mod does let you play alongside a friend on the same PC, or via email. You can play as any faction but can't fight real-time battles against each other. A bit of effort is required to get things going, but it's a compromise some players will happily make, in the absence of a proper co-op campaign. Grab it from Nexus Mods.
Barbarian Invasion: Naval Battles
Another Rome Remastered mod adds naval battles to its Barbarian Invasion expansion. At the moment you can only play them on the four custom maps also introduced by the mod, but every playable faction gets its own roster of ships. Find it on Nexus Mods.
The Total Conquest mod then adds 41 new provinces across Gaul, Britainnia, Illyria, Iberia, Africa, Asia Minor, and Dacia. You also get a unified Roman Empire, rather than four different factions. Two new factions join the fray, namely Epirus and the Achaean League, while the Greek City States have received a series of gameplay tweaks. Find it on Nexus Mods.
Original Wonder Videos
Wonder videos didn't make it into the remaster, which was a bit of a disappointment for those players looking for the full Rome experience. Thankfully, a mod is now available, reformatting and upscaling the original wonders videos, allowing them to work in Creative Assembly's latest title. Check it out on Nexus Mods.
RTR: Imperium Surrectum - Teaser
The teams behind the Rome Total Realism and Roma Surrectum mods are also working together on a total conversion mod for Total War: Rome Remastered. Called RTR: Imperium Surrectum, you can try out a teaser version whose main goal is historical accuracy. It features a unified Roman faction, a culture change that sees Egypt turn Greek, alongside more historical names for factions, regions, and settlements. Find it on Nexus Mods.
The Walking People
It's easy to forget about it with all the politics and warfare going on constantly, but Total War: Rome Remastered also features a city view that lets you step away from the tumultuous life of a faction leader and just admire the cities you've built. The Walking People is a mod that increases the variety of models you'll see roaming the streets of various cities, which should increase immersion. Grab it from Nexus Mods.
Non-essential Total War: Rome Remastered Mods
These Total War: Rome Remastered mods might not drastically change the game just yet, but will gain new features as time passes. Others will also make their way onto Steam Workshop and we'll update this article as soon as we spot more great ones.
