Here’s the official press release for more information on Total War: ATTILA:

Your World Will Burn
Total War™: ATTILA Announced
The next thrilling entry in the Total War series takes players to the brink of the apocalypse

San Francisco and London – September 25, 2014 – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe, Ltd. today announced Total War™: ATTILA, the next instalment in the multi award-winning Total War series of strategy games.
The Dark Ages approach. A time of famine, disease and war, where refugees in their thousands flee from a sweeping tide of destruction and death. Desperate barbaric tribes rally against the ailing might of a dying and divided Roman empire; the light of civilization gutters and dims. In the great steppes of Scythia, a vast and terrifying force gathers, led by a warrior king whose thirst for conquest is utterly unequalled.
The Scourge of God, the very herald of the apocalypse, Attila the Hun.
---
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 Total War: 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.”
---
Total War: ATTILA is due for release in 2015 on Windows PC and Mac. For more information, please visit www.totalwar.com.

    No ty, don't want to pay for a brand new game to get the basic functionality that we've all desired for Rome II, and the late Roman-era centred factions.

    All ought to be part of a large Expansion Pack, instead of re-hashing the game assets and engine with the Huns and the many missing things from Rome II thrown in for the price of a full game.


    I feel distinctly cheated by publisher greed, once again. Emperor Edition was reviving my faith in Total War; the move to have the new game a glorified expansion to the previous one has shattered it once again. I'm done.

    Disappointed. Was hoping to see Warhammer. Also, stand alone game and price for Rome II with mod? No thanks. I'll stick to Rome II.

    I agree and am with you 100%. This is just another slap in the face to TW fans.

    Advanced street fighting and civilians and towns burning? Now this sounds like actual total war.

    Wow. Just wow. Looks great. Can't wait. So excited. Only post. In short. Sentences. :D

    Really like the trailer, very effective. Looking forward to Attila. Will probably buy at release (or pre-order depending on what incentives are offered.)

    EDIT: Haven't seen the stream, just the trailer (reminds me of Napoleon, in a good way) and press release.

    The addition of civilians in the cities will really make for a great new feature. Battleing for their homes or simply fleeing the battlefield. I am faithful that CA will redeem itself with Atilla.

    How do they not realize that THIS is what we wanted in Rome 2? They are gonna push aside Rome and leave it lifeless and featureless and substitute it with this for a year.

    they dark age setting sets it leagues above rome i just hope they dont repeat their mistakes with cloned unit types across factions and just bland looking units in general.

    No thanks. This is essentially a reskinned Rome 2. I'm just curious as to exactly how many features you intend to keep from it - like the dull per-centages for essentially everything (be it melee damage or public order), or the multi-hp system which clearly caused issues for the battles. At least you got the unit cards and parts of the UI right this time, too bad the floating unit flags look dreadful :p

    Doesn't look that good aesthetically at the moment but I'm sure it will change a lot on release. I think it would've been better as a fots type thing but it will be alright. I'm not hyped but not disappointed.

    I love that it was not warhammer, I want historical games. I really liked what I saw. I really liked the added features, the fixed UI and politics that is usefull (gouvernours and so on)! Great work CA!

    That's how people reasoned prior to the release of the main game. They pretty much did the opposite of improving parts of it, visuals included, from pre-release to release.
