Total War: Attila reveals the dawn of the Dark Ages on Feb. 17, 2015

Total War: Attila, the next major release in the long-running Total War series, launches Feb. 17, 2015, Sega announced.

Those who pre-order the upcoming release will also receive its day-one DLC, called The Viking Forefathers Culture Pack, for free. The DLC adds three new playable factions to the game, the Danes, the Jutes and the Geats, which each comes with their own unique land and naval units, traits and missions.

The Viking Forefathers Culture Pack will also be available for purchase seperately for $7.99 to those who don't pre-order the full game.

A Special Edition version of the game is also slated to arrive in retail stores with a copy of the game and DLC, as well as a new 64-page book detailing the life of Attila the Hun and a double-sided poster of the campaign map.

Total War: Attila casts players back to 395 AD, described as 2a time of apocalyptic turmoil at the very dawn of the Dark Ages." The game reintroduces a number of fan-requested features, including family trees and skill trees, while new strategy features will include advanced street-fighting, civilians, complete settlement destruction and dynamic fire. Total War: Attila launches simultaneously on physical and digital platforms.
