Total War: Attila brings back family management to the series. Amongst Total War: Rome II’s many failings, Creative Assembly took out the dynasty drama that made such compelling stories in previous games. In the time since launch, the developers worked hard to bring Rome II up to snuff, (they’ve done a tremendous job at that) but the character bits unfortunately never made it back in. As you can see in the screenshot above, Total War: Attila corrects that. Here, one of the less careful members of the tribe have complicated the lines of succession, possibly bringing doom on themselves, or creating a future branch of royalty. It’s not quite up to Crusader Kings 2’s byzantine politics, but it’s a dash of flavor that’s missing from Rome II.
Total War: Attila is available on Steam.
