In a surprise annoucement today, The Creative Assembly and SEGA have just announced the next entry in Total War series titled, Attila.
The latest entry in the Total War series will take players back to the Dark Ages which the press release describes as, “A time of famine, disease and war, where refugees in their thousands flee from a sweeping tide of destruction and death. Desperate barbaric tribes rally against the ailing might of a dying and divided Roman empire; the light of civilization gutters and dims. In the great steppes of Scythia, a vast and terrifying force gathers, led by a warrior king whose thirst for conquest is utterly unequaled.”
And, of course, judging by the title you know who is leading the scourge of the human race, Attila the Hun.
The press release also detailed some new gameplay changes and improvements that will arrive with Total War: Attila. You can read the full statement just below.
“With Total War: ATTILA we will create a Total War game that will challenge and enthrall fans of the series,” said Janos Gaspar, project lead on ATTILA. “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.”
Finally, the first teaser trailer for the game was also released which you can view just below. Total War: Attila will be available on PC sometime in 2015.
