Total War: Attila – Age of Charlemagne is Announced

Creative Assembly have just announced a new expansion for Total War: Attila.

The new expansion is titled Age of Charlemagne, and is based in the year 768, which is when Charlemagne took the Frankish throne. The game will feature era specific units such as knights and housecarls, as well as 50 provinces that can be conquered.

This is a throwback for the series in the Medieval Era, which hasn’t seen a game based in that era since Medieval 2: Total War.

Age of Charlemagne will be made available on Steam on December 10th.

    maybe I’m just not used to historically-inspired games but to anybody who knows a little history this just sounds weird: two figures separated by more than almost 400 years, from different ages of history, from geographically & culturally completely different parts of the known world. Total War Napoleon: The Hundred Years’ War? Total War American Revolution: Pearl Harbor? Total War The Crusades: Oliver Cromwell? Total War Vietnam: Osama bin Laden?

    Does anyone hear that? That’s the sound of nails scraping the bottom of the creative barrel.

    You are right, this is very weird.

    Weird indeed. I wish they’d done one about the Muslim expansion. It’s a perfect capstone on the era of Late Antiquity, and they wouldn’t have had to depict Muhammed.

    The name is weird yeah. But Crusader Kings 2 did something similar, it being about the Crusades starting at 1066-1453 while the Old Gods and Charlemagne DLC added start dates of 769-.
