Unlocking FactionsContributed by Indra was here (20928) on Jan 07, 2006.

Besides the 3 major Roman factions, you can unlock other factions in the game. Though the manual states you have to finish the game campaign to do so, this in not true. You can unlock the races during the campaign by simply eliminating them. You do not have to eliminate that faction yourself, as long as during the campaign that faction was eliminated, when you start a new campaign, that faction will be available for selection.

Note: Not all factions can be unlocked as not all factions have an opening cutscene.

Additional note: This no longer applies if you have installed Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion expansion. To unlock factions, you have to complete the short or long campaigns.
