Total War: Attila Announced
SEGA announced the next installment in the multi award-winning Total War series of strategy games, Total War: Attila at EGX London 2014.
“The Dark Ages approach. 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. The Scourge of God, the very herald of the apocalypse, Attila the Hun.”
The game introduces new gameplay mechanics which improve and add to numerous core turn-based and real-time Total War systems.
“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.”
