Total War: ATTILA - Slavic Nations

Slavic Nations DLC was developed by Creative Assembly, published by SEGA and released 25 February 2016.

About the Game

The Slavic Nations Culture Pack added three new playable factions to Total War: ATTILA. The Anteans, Sclavenians and Venedians may be used in Single or Multiplayer Campaign modes and Custom and Multiplayer battles.

Victory for the Slavic Nations requires the player to build Wonders from the new Legendary building chain. The scale of the victory (minor/regular/divine) and type of victory (military/cultural) depends upon the Wonder built, and players can continue to build different Wonders to achieve greater scales of victory.

These Wonders, while very expensive to build and maintain, confer increasingly powerful provincial and faction-wide bonuses, and unlock powerful new battle abilities for Slavic units.

The new City Religion building chain offers temples with numerous religious and civic bonuses, and unlocks the Last Stand battle ability for all Slavic units in the province.

All factions in the Slavic cultural group benefit from the Hardy Warriors trait, which enables them to swiftly recolonise razed provinces.

Skills and Experience

On Slavic Nations, we made a new campaign mechanic, where instead of capturing a certain number of regions to win the campaign, the winning objective was to construct a certain building. This later inspired the Oak of Ages victory condition in the Realm of the Wood Elves Warhammer DLC. Poisoned arrows were also a similarity between these two DLCs.
