Total War: ATTILA release date, special edition and pre-orders announced

Hi all,

We’re delighted to announce the release date for Total War: ATTILA as well as details on information on what you will get for free if you pick up Total War: ATTILA early – and information on our special edition.

Without further ado, I’ll hand you over to the official press release, which has more information than you can shake a spear at.

**

Release Date:

The global release date for Total War™: ATTILA will be February 17th, 2015 across all territories on both physical and digital formats.
The game is now available for pre-order from the SEGA Store and other retailers world-wide: www.totalwar.com

Pre-order Bonus:

Players who pre-order from participating retailers will receive Total War™: ATTILA’s first downloadable content for free alongside the game on release day. This first DLC, The Viking Forefathers Culture Pack, adds three additional playable factions to the game: The Danes, The Jutes and The Geats.

These warlike Norse factions have their own unique land and naval units, missions, cultural and factional traits, and are poised to launch southwards from their icy homelands on campaigns of raiding, looting and conquest.

The Viking Forefathers Culture Pack will also be available to purchase separately from February the 17th, priced at £5.99/€7.49/$7.99.

Special Edition:

The Total War: ATTILA Special Edition, contains items not available in the digital version. These are:

• Attila The Hun Biography
Written by Nic Fields and published by renowned military history specialists Osprey Publishing, this brand-new Attila The Hun Biography is based on the latest academic research and theories. Beautifully illustrated with maps, archaeological photographs and specially commissioned artwork, it details the life, times and dark deeds of one of history’s most infamous warlords. This biography is only currently available as part of the Total War: ATTILA Special Edition.

• Reference Guide Poster
o This double-sided poster features original Total War: ATTILA campaign map artwork on one side, and a comprehensive playable faction reference guide on the other.

• Viking Forefathers Culture Pack
o Whether pre-ordered or purchased at launch, the Total War: ATTILA Special Edition includes this significant pack of content featuring three additional playable Norse factions.

Check with your local retailer for availability, or here for a page we will update with regional stockists.


**

We also have a rather swanky trailer for the Viking Forefathers Culture Pack, which you can catch right here:

    Not really vikings, before they were vikings (There are a couple of differences). In sweden, this time is called "vendeltiden", and it's almost like vikings, but a bit more... primitive!

    Wasn't the Vendel Period just after Late Antiquity ended?

    Viking age started 793 AD. So this game is still 400 years away from that.

    I don't really like their inclusion.
    The Heruli would've been nicer to have.

    Still... I'm easily exciteable when it comes to Vikings. So the focus of Attila just shifted a little for me...

    Sounds cool :D.

    I don't mind this kinda day 1 dlc, as this just means more culture packs will follow(i will pick those that i want and what i dont want), and these 3 factions seems minor, so those that doesnt like this can just ignore it.

    Yes, you are right! The vendel period starts about 550A.D (my bad memory and not looking up the facts is to blade :p)
    The migration period is the time here, so it's prepre vikings :D

    The Geats fought against the Huns, so in my opinion their inclusion is justified.

    Most people who get into Total War games end up enjoying in one way or another pieces of history, usually related to the TW title at hand. I need that Attila bIo.
