SEGA has announced that new downloadable content for Empire: Total War will be available today via Steam.

The Elite Units of the East DLC features 12 new unit types for the Maratha Confederacy and the Ottoman factions. Most of these soldiers developed their expertise on the battlefield - some are fearsome brigands, others of them are drawn from a strong academic background.

The DLC is available from Steam priced £1.79 and is currently on offer along with previous Empire: Total War DLC.
