SEGA released a cinematic trailer for their upcoming turn-based strategy game, Total War: Attila.
“As the world descends into the mists of the Dark Ages, civilization begins to crumble. Early Christians of Western Europe clamour to repent, stricken by looming omens of a divine apocalypse. In this climate of turmoil, the Eastern Roman Empire stands at a crossroads.
Secure behind the impenetrable walls of Constantinople, there are opportunities for fresh conquest.
But with the warlike Visigoths to the North, the heathen Sassanids to the East, and their closest ally to the west stretched thin and tearing itself apart in its greed, is now truly the time to ride out and expand the Empire? And who will rightfully wear the crown?”
“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…”
