The Creative Assembly is continuing its free content support for Total War: Attila this week, with a new faction arriving alongside an historical battle and the game's latest update.

The Suebi, a new playable faction for all owners of Total War: ATTILA, are the stars of a free DLC which also includes a new historical battle (The Battle of Dara) and the latest game patch – all dropping this Thursday (June 25th).

Starting the period as a displaced people within the Western Roman Empire, the Suebians are a warlike confederation of smaller tribes who take quickly to a migratory lifestyle, making excellent raiders. The cities of northern Gaul could provide rich plunder, yet historically the Suebi found conquest in Spain; which path will you choose for them?
An all-new campaign pack is also set to release on the same day -- The Last Roman which includes a huge new campaign map as well as "a unique new “Roman Expedition” faction as one of 5 playable factions". You'll be able to play as Belisarius, one of the last great Roman generals and retake Rome from Emperor Justinian, or you can rebel against him and work to crown yourself Emperor of Rome.

Watch a trailer for the new content embedded below, and pre-order now from Steam. We also have extensive fact-sheet we've prepared on the site for you, right here.

Creative Assembly has announced the first add-on for the recently-released Total War: Atilla, the Celts Culture Pack. Bringing a new faction, new units, and a new Guerrilla Deployment trait that allows troops to be deployed behind enemy lines, the new add-on should prove to be a great addition to the latest Total War. Oh, and that's Celtics as in long beards, white skin, and a predilection for spears. And not no beards, white skin and a world class baseline jump shot. In other words, no Larry Bird.

But there is a trailer, which you can check out below.

Total War: Attila is due to release in the early part of this year, but ahead of that (and our requisite review) Kosta Andreadis took a preview build of the game for a hands-on spin.

Here's an excerpt from Kosta's time with the game:
One of the newer and more interesting features of Total War: Attila is the introduction of horde mechanics which basically mean that you can pack up your entire city, burn the remains to ashes, and take your army and people out into the wilderness to find a new place to call home. Of course this probably translates to taking over someone else’s city, a staple in any form of global conquest, but the ability to migrate adds a new dynamic to Total War that is genuinely exciting. For the first time in the series’ history you can play the game without any inclination of winning the day by either military or economic conquest. You can simply play the role of crazy barbarian warlord who amasses an army and followers and simply decided to spend a few decades causing destruction via rampaging from one side of a continent to another.

Popular RTS developer The Creative Assembly has today announced the latest strategy game in the long-running Total War series, titled Attila.

As you would expect from the name, this one will be following one of the most famous warriors in history: Attila the Hun and his one million horsemen. The ultimate warrior from the East and leader of the Hunnic Empire, his reign stretched from the Ural River to the Rhine River and from the Danube River to the Baltic Sea.

Total War: Attila introduces exciting new gameplay mechanics which improve and add to numerous core turn-based and real-time Total War systems. The world will darken around you as Attila’s forces descend on your homeland creating a unique vision of survival strategy.

“With Total War: Attila we will create a Total War game that will challenge and enthrall fans of the series” said Janos Gaspar, project lead on Attila. “We’re reintroducing some features that fans have been asking for, such as family trees and skill trees, and improving many of the core aspects of Total War we know are important to them. But to really bring the period to life, we’re building on these foundations with many new strategic features for them to consider, such as advanced street-fighting, civilians, complete settlement destruction and dynamic fire that can rage across a city as armies clash. We want to push players to the limits of their skill to survive against the odds, and to love every minute of it.”

As mentioned above, a new fire mechanic will be introduced into the game, allowing buildings to burn and fires to spread across the land. Diseases will also play an important role in the game, whereby not keeping your city in check could end up costing you the entire campaign by spreading these foul maladies during sieges, through enemy or friendly armies and even along trade routes.

“Diseases were a key feature of the period,” said communications manager Al Bickham. “We’ve decoupled the squalor/sanitation balance that we had in Rome 2 from public order. It’s now directly related to the health of your city. If you don’t keep a city clean, it may suffer disease.”

Total War: Attila is currently scheduled for a release sometime in 2015 on Windows and Mac.
