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.Click here for his full hands-on preview of Total War: Attila
