The Creative Assembly + Sega game is the ninth standalone title of the Total War series. But Attila is set to be an interesting take on strategy war games, as it takes into consideration other variables that influence war, including troop fatigue and morale where armies based on this may break away, come back with renewed fervour or retreat. How Ping Fa of you. The mechanics are definitely a Point Of Sale for the game, with AI hordes and migration, spanning civilizations (we use this term loosely [it was the Dark Ages afterall]) across Europe.
Total War: Attila synopsis reads:
Against a darkening background of famine, disease and war, a new power is rising in the great steppes of the East. With a million horsemen at his back, the ultimate warrior king approaches, and his sights are set on Rome…
How far will you go to survive? Will you sweep oppression from the world and carve out a barbarian or Eastern kingdom of your own? Or will you brace against the coming storm as the last remnants of the Roman Empire, in the ultimate survival-strategy challenge?
The Scourge of God is coming. Your world will burn.
