Longbeards Culture Pack next week and a chance to win Will's Helm

Hi guys,

Sorry - we've decided to put the Longbeards Culture Pack back into the development oven for a week or so, so it and the Total War: ATTILA Update won’t be out this week.

But to lessen the blow of not getting your hands on the Langobards, the Alamans and the Burgundians quite as soon, we’re running a giveaway where you can win the very helm worn in our Total War: ATTILA - Special Edition Hunboxing. Warning: may contain traces of Will.

For more information, hit up our Twitter feed and take part!

    Will there be any changes to the patch notes with it also being delayed, or is it a bit too early for you to say?

    I'm glad. Haven't we always complained that things are rushed out? What is better, that CA admits that something isn't ready and holds it back, or rushing a product out the door?

    Imagine if they had done this for Rome II?

    Quit the nerd rage, and give CA a hand here. They are doing the right thing.

    Was really looking forward to the patch, now that it's being delayed I hope more can be added to it.

    Yet again CA caves in and succumbs to pressure from a few people who were complaining about their "business practices". Some people are determined to ruin this game at any cost unfortunately. CA removed torches which will negatively affect siege AI and pretty soon they will make the WRE and ERE immortal in the campaign to satisfy the people who always want to fight the same 2 enemy factions over and over. These same people also want changes to recruitment so the player can still be able to recruit low-tier units even after building upgrades like in RTW2 and then consequently complain that the AI only recruits low tier units, mark my words.

    It's still being released, you know. And the function of torches has been replaced, not removed. :rolleyes:

    Well who knows maybe they are adding features to the DLC factions. Hopefully they are actually doing some Multiplayer balancing with the patch.

    Well if it wasn't ready it's a good thing they're taking their time. However it seems a bit weird that they were so quick to announce this dlc, only to go "woops, seems like it's gonna need twice as much time"
    It's never too late to panic!

    Agreed, there may be legimtimate reasons behind this. If it's in fact not finished I think it's good they're honest about it (well, sort of). But why withhold the patch?

    Oh no. You have angered FLOKI.

    He is not happy at this delay ! And you honor him with a helm to please him? No way!

    DLC now must contain elements of your "Blood&Gore" for free for this ignorance.

    This might appease FLOKI !

    But why withhold the patch?

    The patch'll likely have DLC-compatibility stuff in it. Having to strip that back out again would probably take time and effort and it's probably just easier from a development standpoint to release them together.

    The patch being delayed makes sense from a coding standpoint, it is probably based on the game source that is modified after the DLC, not the pre-DLC version.

    It wouldn't make any sense to go in and strip out the DLC related code, and then end up redoing it a week later.

    Shame about the patch delay but i'd rather a working patch that fixes bugs rather than one that creates more. So if holding back another week ensures that i'm fine with it.
