Default Total War; Attila rumoured - Barbarian Invasion for Rome 2? (a forum/fansite that's basically the be-all end-all for most total war modding and news these days) has teased information regarding an announcement for later today regarding a new game. Many people thought it might be a new Warhammer Fantasy Total War after it was revealed that they (creative assembly, under Sega) bought the license a couple of years ago - but images from a gaming expo teased the Creative Assembly Booth to have an image of a guy in scale armour, and the Total War symbol to be that of a Horse Archer - inevitably, the Huns).

With the improvements bought to base game from Kingdoms to M2TW, Napoleon to Empire, and Fall of the Samurai to Shogun 2, many people are expecting this to be the actual game that Rome 2 was expected to be, rather than a glorified unit pack. As much as I'm enjoying Rome 2 with the Emperor Edition, I still feel it's missing something - namely to do with the fact that I don't care about my actual generals short of the abilities they bring, and the trait+skill system is fairly bad. My generals no longer have an actual story behind them, they're simply a stat block. Anyway, whinge over, I'm actually looking forward to seeing this.

It's not a rumour anymore:

Haven't actually bought Rome 2, the reviews were s bad I decided to stick with Medieval 2. Wishing something great with come so I could play online campaign with my friend. He lives in a different country so we can only hotseat play once or twice a year.

As always the trailer is fucking awesome. Hopefully SEGA will deliver this time.
