Total War: Attila

Total War: Attila is leaning big on Horsemen of the Apocalypse mythology—taking queues from the Book of Revelation and the seven seals. What this means, in practical terms, is that whenever I have to write about it, I inevitably end up listening to Johnny Cash's The Man Comes Around on repeat.

This aside, it's a new Total War—one with some similarities to Rome's Barbarian Invasion expansion. In this new in-engine trailer, you can get a feel for some of the themes Creative Assembly are honing in on.

For more, head on over to my first-look Attila impressions.

Phil has been writing for PC Gamer for nearly a decade, starting out as a freelance writer covering everything from free games to MMOs. He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
