Attila Total War: Factions brings a number of new features to the table. Players can now convert to a specific religion and gain a number of unique benefits in every province of the empire. These benefits include religious edicts, temple buildings, and character traits. Players can also determine which religion is dominant in a province. Although a dominant religion can help a player’s kingdom to thrive in the game, it also poses a number of drawbacks.
The gameplay in Total War: Attila is very similar to Rome II, but it feels more exciting and rewarding. While the AI in this game is smarter than Rome II, it is still vulnerable to human generals, so there is some challenge in winning battles. The game’s graphics have improved quite a bit in recent years, and there are now flames on rooftops. Despite the game’s increasing complexity, it still manages to create stunning sweeping views of armies.
There are dozens of different factions in Attila. In addition to the Huns and Vikings, the game also features the Eastern and Western Roman Empires, Visigoths, Vandals, Sassanid empire, Franks, and Alans. These factions will be quite challenging to conquer, but can help you gain the upper hand in a conflict.
Total War: Attila is available for Windows and Mac OS. The PC version of the game will need Windows Vista or later, and at least 3 gigabytes of RAM. Moreover, it will need about 35 gigabytes of free hard disk space. A game of this nature is more than a mere simulation, so players should take care of their hardware before downloading the game.
