Creative Assembly has announced the Longbeards Culture Pack DLC for Total War: Attila which will be released on the 26th. The DLC comes with three Germanic factions: the Burgundians, Alamans, and Langobards. It’s not just unit roster changes and cosmetic skins, either. The DLC includes unique campaign events and story beats.
Playing as these factions will present you with a new series of linked narrative events. The Lay Of Ybor is delivered in the style of a Germanic Saga, in which you direct the actions of a fabled hero through a series of branching narrative choices. As the story draws to its conclusion, Ybor himself becomes available as a general for your armies, complete with traits that mirror the choices you made.
This Longbeards Culture Pack DLC comes a week after the game’s launch and is not the Viking Forefathers pre-order DLC which has been available for purchase since the game went live. You can imagine how well the surprise DLC unveiling is going over with the vocal Total War crowd.
