Hello, i've bought Rome some time ago and in my library i have Rome - Gold Edition and Rome - Vae Victis. I was wandering, what's the differance beetwen the two? On the first and secound glance they looks like exactly the same game. Menu, music, gameplay, events. I haven't gotten far into their campaigns, but both looks identical. Am i the only one who is confused?

Gold Edition should be the base game + Vae Victis which should be exactly the same as just Vae Victis given that Vae Victis need the base game to run.

Sorry for bumping this, but has anyone confirmed that both items in the steam library are really the same thing?

It would make no sense to be any different but a confirmation would be nice.

I'm checking Steam right now, it appears only Gold Edition is available for purchase. Searching "Vae Victis" yields only Gold Edition in the Paradox store.

Yes, you can only buy the Gold Edition, but after you buy it, both Gold and Vae Victis appear in the library.

Weird. (Sorry, I have the GG version from like 10 years ago). They should be the same. But Vae Vicitis will have the EP for sure.

Yes, I suppose so. I just would like an official confirmation as it's odd to have two items in the library that are most likely the same thing.
