Total War: ATTILA Empires of Sand Culture Pack Announced

‘Empires of Sand’ Announced for Total War: ATTILA; Free content also coming soon

Developer Creative Assembly and SEGA announced that The Empires of Sand Culture Pack brings three new playable factions and new religion features to Total War: ATTILA:

  • New Factions; Aksum, Himyar and Tanukhids with new unique units
  • New Campaign mechanics
  • New Horde mechanics
  • New Religion features.

Aksum, Himyar and the Tanukhids may be used in Single or Multiplayer Campaign modes and Custom and Multiplayer battles.Hailing from the harsh deserts of Africa and the Middle East, these factions are part of the new Desert Kingdoms cultural group, and bring new campaign mechanics, new horde gameplay mechanics, events, enhanced religion features, battlefield rosters and unique units to Total War: ATTILA.

Because of the dramatic impact religious changes had on these cultures in this period, the Empires of Sand Culture Pack includes a number of changes that increase the importance of religion including building chains, victory conditions, events, technologies and overall campaign bonuses.

With new objectives, skills, buildings, religious events, ancillaries and a series of new narrative event-chains for each faction, the Empires of Sand Culture Pack features a huge array of new content for ATTILA players.

A new update with free additional playable faction content will also drop on launch day – check out fan-produced podcast ‘The Warcast’ today for an exclusive reveal. (we’ll get you a link as soon as the developer sends it to us).
