Total War: Attila has been announced as a game coming to PC and Mac in 2015. It follows the successful release of Rome Total War 2 and will focus primarily on Attila (as the title suggests). Sega says that as the game takes place in “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.”
Total War: Attila will be bringing with it a variety of new gameplay features for players to enjoy, building upon the experience offered during Rome Total War 2. Janos Gaspar, project lead on Attila said “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.”
There were also a variety of concept images which were released to coincide with the announcement of Total War: Attila
