Total-War-Attila-image-2

Ah, Attila. We hear he was a lovely guy, full of peaceful thoughts and a deep-seated fear of fire and burning things. “The Gandhi of his generation”, we’ve heard him called. Apparently he was adored by all of Rome, and huge celebrations were held whenever he visited the ancient city.

Of course, all of the information above was passed down by a historian who’d once had Attila’s knife at his throat, and was thereby forced to say only the nicest of things about the conqueror’s grand “benevolence”.

Anyway, fans of careful turn-based strategising and manic real-time battling would do well to follow us into the depths of this post.

Courtesy of Ster Kinekor’s endless generosity, we’ve got our paws on four copies of the newest entry in the excellent, long-running Total War series of grand strategy games, and we’d love to give ’em away to four lucky readers. If you’ve never dipped your toes in the endless pool of tactical wonders presented by this franchise, this’ll be the perfect way to experience it for the first time. Or, if you’ve been a fan since the beginning, this is the excuse you’ve been looking for to dive back into Total War.

Leave a comment below if you’re ready to lose yourself to many, many hours of sneaky espionage, aggressive expansion and bloody battles featuring thousands of units.
