Total War: ATTILA - Long Beards

Long Beards DLC was developed by The Creative Assembly, published by SEGA and released on 4 March 2015.

About the Game

The Longbeards Culture Pack brings three new playable factions to Total War: ATTILA. The Langobards, the Burgundians and the Alamans can be used in Single or Multiplayer Campaign modes and Custom and Multiplayer battles.

After centuries facing the threat of Roman dominance, these three formidable and warlike Germanic kingdoms are ready at last to sweep forth in expansionist campaigns from their tribal homelands. The Western Roman Empire lies to the South, her border territories weak and ripe for the plunder. With their unique blend of new buildings, battlefield units and faction traits, The Longbeards are poised to exploit the chaos of the age.

Each faction presents the player with a new series of linked narrative events, unique faction traits, mission objectives, buildings, ancillaries and units (23 in total)

Skills and Experiences

This was my teams first Total War: ATTILA DLC, after the successful launch of Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition. Total War: ATTILA was in a much more stable position functionality wise than Total War: ROME II at release, so we could focus more on making new content.

Some of the New Content teams faces were used and over-painted for the new ancillaries in the game.
