Total War: Attila, released early 2015, takes place in the turbulent time from late antiquity to the migrating period and begins in 395 AD. The game plays like most other Total War titles with the additions of functions like migrating hordes and the ability to completely demolish a settlement/region.In this timeframe the Roman empire, though divided between an eastern and a western empire, is still the major faction of Europe, Africa and parts of Asia with control of more or less half of the campaign map.The Western Empire has direct control of basically everything west of the germanic lands while the Eastern empire control Greece, Turkey and the mediterranean shore down to Egypt and beyond. If you think this sounds like a walk in the park then think again. Throughout the empire rebellions are brewing, public order is disastrous low, you are on the brink of war with virtually every neighbouring faction, who quite frankly hates you. And if this wasn't bad enough, extensive corruption leaves your coffers basically empty and deny you the income necessary to handle all the different threats.Needless to say, the Roman Empire is in deep trouble from the very first turn of the game, and if not handled correctly will quickly find itself in a fight for survival.This guide will go through the opening moves playing as the Western Roman Empire, the WRE, and offer logical steps on, not only how to survive, but salvage as much as possible of the once mighty Roman Empire.
