The Celts are coming in Total War: Attila

A brand new culture pack is heading for Sega and Creative Assembly’s Total War: Attila, and the announcement is perfect;y timed for St.Patrick’s Day.

Happy Saint Pats evrybody! …not that the Celts are too happy. A bloody uprising is seeing the Celts make a stand against the occupying Roman culture as they try and liberate their homeland from the crushing grip of Rome in this new culture pack for the recently released Attila.

And as additional forces go, the Celts are pretty unique and have some excellent abilities on the battlefield.

Playable for the first time in Total War™: ATTILA, the Celtic tribes of the Ebdanians, Caledonians and Picts specialize in swift and deadly warfare. Every unit in the Celtic roster has the Guerrilla Deployment trait, enabling them to deploy almost anywhere on the battlefield – even behind enemy lines.

The Celts offer a unique play-style focused on raiding, looting and sacking. Each faction benefits from its own unique traits, but all share Celtic cultural traits that vastly increase their income from these activities. An all-new Celtic roster is available for recruitment, alongside new units unique to each faction.

Not too shabby right there. The Celts also have the all-new objectives as you might expect, as well as new “skills, tier-5 buildings, ancillaries and a new narrative event-chain”. So this is a pretty complete add-on for gamers who’ve been waging war with Rome and the Huns, and should expand the game quite a bit to keep you playing.

The Celts add-on pack for Total War: Attila has no release date as of yet, but watch for an announcement some time soon.
