A year after the release of Total War: Rome II, SEGA and Creative Assembly have revealed plans to continue their long running series of real time strategy epics. The latest instalment will be known as Total War: Attila. According to the initial publicity material, players will control the Roman Empire at a “time of apocalyptic turmoil at the very dawn of the Dark Ages.”
As the title of the game makes abundantly clear, the formidable Hun Empire will also play a major role in proceedings. At this stage, though, it isn’t clear if players will have the chance to control the forces of the legendary Attila during the campaign or if he will serve merely in the role of antagonist. Attila is only the second historical figure after Napoleon to feature in the title of a core Total War game.
Creative Assembly is promising “improved core gameplay” as well as “breathtaking scale” and “improved graphical performance” when Total War: Attila arrives on PC in 2015.
