Factions are an essential part of the Total War or any series because without other factions you would have no-one to fight against or play for. In the game there are a total of 271 playable and non-playable factions in the Total War series so far. Some can be made playable through both free and paid downloadable content.

Each faction has a special advantage like superior cavalry or archer units or better farming or trade. The upgrade is exclusive to that faction and that faction alone.
