Total War: Attila announced

The Scourge of God, the very herald of the apocalypse, Attila the Hun.

Sega and Creative Assembly have announced the next game in the Total War series: Total War: Attila, due out on PC and Mac February 2015.

The game is set in 395 AD, during the run up to the Dark Ages, when tribes are fighting against a dying Roman Empire. Cue Attila the Hun, who descends from the steppes of Scythia.

Like past games in the series, Attila is a mix of turn-based and real-time strategy mechanics. It reintroduces features including family trees and skill trees, and adds the likes of advanced street-fighting, civilians, settlement destruction and dynamic fire.

"We want to push players to the limits of their skill to survive against the odds, and to love every minute of it," said project lead Janos Gaspar.

Paul Dean visited Creative Assembly and put together an extensive Total War: Attila preview for Eurogamer.
