The Scourge of God will arrive in the next iteration of the popular Total War franchise, as Total War: Attila will bring the savage Attila the Hun to the series.
Set during the dying days of the Roman Empire, Total War: Attila focuses on the fiery raids Attila the Hun waged on the massive empire. With the empire spread thin throughout Europe, now is the perfect time for the warrior king to begin his conquest. In order to combat this threat, you will need to be quick on your feet and able to calculate what’s the best move for the Roman Empire.
Janos Gaspar, project lead on Total War: Attila, spoke further about some of the changes coming to the franchise:
“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.”
To go along with the announcement, Creative Assembly also released a batch of screenshots, as well as a CGI trailer starring Attila himself. So if you ever wanted to see the fearsome general yell in your face about how “your world will burn,” now’s your chance.
Total War: Attila will launch for Windows and MAC in 2015. Take a look at the debut trailer and screens below and let us know what you think.
