Total War: Attila is Revealed & Pillaging PC and Mac in 2015

Sega and Creative Assembly have announced Total War: Attila for PC and Mac. Featured above, you can view the debut trailer for the game, which is simply a tease at the horrors to come from the hands of quite easily the most infamous warlord, Attila the Hun.

The entirely new game is a follow up to Total War: Rome II much in the same way that Napoleon: Total War was the follow up to Empire: Total War. With all of these Creative Assembly built games, you’ll be tasked with living out and potentially changing real historical battles between Attila the Hun and the ailing Roman Empire.

As you can imagine, Total War: Attila is a darker take on the series and has somewhat of a bigger emphasis on survivalist elements added into the strategy gameplay. You’ll have to prepare for the ongoing invasion of Attila’s hordes, or decide to take up the immeasurable task of defending what’s left of the Roman Empire, while making painful decisions on what to defend and what to let go.

Janos Gaspar, project lead on Total War: Attila, had this to say in an official statement:

“We’re reintroducing some features that fans have been asking for, such as family trees and skill trees, and improving many of the core aspects of Total War we know are important to them. But to really bring the period to life, we’re building on these foundations with many new strategic features for them to consider, such as advanced street-fighting, civilians, complete settlement destruction and dynamic fire that can rage across a city as armies clash. We want to push players to the limits of their skill to survive against the odds, and to love every minute of it.”

To celebrate the news of Total War: Attila, Creative Assembly is hosting a free weekend for Total War: Rome II on Steam, while most of the games are on sale to boot. Beginning today and until 1 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, you’ll be able to play Total War: Rome II for free.

Total War: Attila is coming to both PC and Mac sometime in February of 2015.

    I wonder… wouldn’t it be great if somewhere in the future there was Total War:Genghis Khan I mean mongolian empire was the biggest empire ever created. And even if many people consider them as simple barbarians that is far from the truth, Well after all its administrative power was created by Yelü Chucai.

    So yeah… it would be nice idea.

    I think there could be an Asia Total War, it’s a really unexplored theme in the strategy genre

    Too vast period and too many powers.

    Look, Asia was more advanced and civilized region up to more or less XVIII century. (btw. European here) There was not only great Chinese civilization, but also many Indian empires which really were more advanced than European countries. It just wouldn’t be fair to make out of all of this just one epsiode.
