Welcome to the Official ModDB site for "Wars of the Gods - Ancient Wars" Mod by ToonTotalWar and Bran Mac Born. Here you will find latest news, updates and download area for the mod.

For all of you who are new here this modification gives you one of the largest overhauls for Total War: Rome 2 game.

Features include:

  • Unlocked Factions for Grand Campaign, Imperial Augustus, Wrath of Sparta, Ceaser In Gaul , Hannibal At The Gates and Rise of the Republic

  • Over 1500 units added across all factions

  • Unique AOR (Area Of Recruitment) for many units

  • Roman Army Major Overhaul

  • Various BAI and CAI updates to give much smoother, historically realistic and better gameplay experience.

  • Unique UI, Loading Screens, Unit Cards and much more....

Many other features include Graphical and Campaign Gameplay improvements.

Also in September 2018 the mods BAI & CAI have received a total overhaul and the in game mechanics totally changed so that the AI is stretched to its capacity to perform on its decisions on Diplomacy and Strategy.

Here is a flavour of what to expect......AI armies are well balanced mix of units and are powerful and Faction growth with expansion and formation of empires. Also your allies will assist and aid in wars with you, less squalor and more food production, cities are harder to take down as the ai will defend them. Ai will be aggressive and attack you and will grow stronger still as the campaign continues faction growth with improved factions will research more and build up their cities.

Battles in game are also now more creative by the AI when facing your opponents as they will plan there attacks carefully. AI armies keep their formations better and are clever -units will disengage reform and attack your weak points, better flanking, units will counter player moves better, battles last longer...but not too long, units have better endurance and morale, better AP for javelin units. battle will be tough and bloody affairs-do not take AI faction for granted they are not push overs.

​The Mods preferred level to be played on is Hard/Very Hard difficulties. Please visit our website which is located in right column next to "Homepage" to view more details and the additional mods we recommend you to use that are compatible.

Experienced Players:If you want the most challenging campaign it is recommended you play on Very Hard Campaign difficulty and use some of the following submods: Harder Economy, Double Research and Building Costs, Total Slaughter or the Super Slaughter submod. Also if you play as the Romans the preferred level is Very Hard as they have buffs in game so that the AI when using them stay in game and do not get wiped out early on!

​So that's it for now and stay tuned for further developments....

IMPORTANT NOTE: This mod is only compatible with the sub mods that are listed on our download section or steam sites and any other mods are not supported and will give either erratic game play or crashes in game. We will only consider and offer help on bug reports with the provision that you are using no other unsupported mods, however if you wish to contact the mod authors direct to confirm if compatible, thanks.

On Major updates to mod we advise a new start as some save games will not be compatible, however we will always try and let you know if they are save game compatible. Also on major updates it is always best to start a new campaign game so that you can play with all the new stuff that has been added.

Glad I stumbled upon this here while looking at mods for other games. I never ran into it at TWCenter, as that is where I go to keep up on total war mods! heheh!

You guys are Legends! You have made the battles the best ever in any Total War game-this version of the mod surpasses everything before it. This version has taken the campaign to new heights with more engaging diplomacy,naval invasions,better ai army mixes,tougher sieges and boy they are tough. I have played 155 turns and no crashes yet. You continue to astound me with every new update-the mod continues to get better every time-how do you do this? This is far and away the best mod for Rome 2. This leaves the other big overhaul mods eating dust in terms of game play and fun. Hail this version. Note: I find the continued ignorance and silence about this masterpiece of a mod on other Total War sites to be baffling and very very strange indeed. Boy people do not know what they are missing-fools if they have not tried this mod. Happy Days!

Been testing out this new 8.6 version. The Romans are beasts in battles-love the new unit sizes the legions are scary as hell and those First Cohort units=death on a large scale. Will have to bring at least two armies to take on the one legion now. Battles are the best ever so far in this mod, better than I have experienced in any other mod: PERFECT. I see that the AI is making more allies and diplomacy is more active, I am getting more diplomatic requests and allies really do help me out. There are more navies and moving around the sea in a war region is very difficult as your fleet will be intercepted by enemy fleets-so more naval battles=great.I am experiencing more naval invasions too as enemies send multiple stacks to my shores. Another thing I noticed is the Ai really goes ape and counterattacks you if you take their settlement-they throw everything at you to take it back-so I have to bring extra armies to ward them off-in fact if you invade another country bring up at least 4 full stacks or your will meet ruin and disaster. Cities are very hard to take down. So far this is a much harder experience on the campaign map. Kudos for the battle improvements. Great update guys. Thanks.

You probably have an old version of game, so you need latest version which is patch 20 compatible. I have steam version of game so no ideas really on non steam version. Try what i suggested as it sounds like you have older version of game.

Outstanding update! Campaign is exploding all over the map and the Romans are really expanding-they are super aggressive. Love it. Economy is harder, but not impossible-a better challenge. Diplomacy is more logical, factions making interesting alliances. Battles are longer and tougher- better struggle and sieges are very epic now-you will need at least two armies to take major cities. I did not think you could improve on what I think is the best mod for Rome 2 and you just did-wow. Awesome just awesome. You rock!
