Known as one of the most fierce warriors in history, Attila the Hun seeks to bring in his unique battles onto PC on February 17th of 2015. Known for the strategy game antics, Total War leaves nothing to imagination when it comes to history. For those who want a unique take on the history of the world, Total War is a proper place to go to see what old world skirmishes would be like.
For those seeking to obtain the game through a pre-order can head over to the Sega Store and catch up on a special Pre-Order Bonus; The Viking Forefathers Culture Pack, which will be adding three additional playable factions to the game. You may recognize the names such as The Danes, The Jutes, and even The Geats.
These characters will be among the first of the DLC packs available once the game launches and will allow players to experience combat with the Norse factions. Allowing this to happen will put them among some of the most vicious warriors at the time, which means that players will get to experience Norse battlefields unique to this DLC, but also naval units, missions, cultural and factional traits that will carry on through the game. Will you have what it takes to master the battlefields as they seek to move southwards from the lands of ice in order to raid, pillage, and conquer?
For those who do not pre-order, the DLC will be available as a separate purchase starting February 17th, 2015 for £5.99, €7.49, and $7.99 respectively. Meanwhile, the game will also be getting a bit of a special addition that will leave some players wanting more as the game becomes available.
