New Releases: The Order: 1886, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Total War: Attila, More


Do you believe that a secret cabal of soldiers guards the citizenry from an encroaching force of half-human/half-beastly hybrids? And do you believe that these men and women are the only thing standing between the total collapse of society and these so-called werewolves? You do? Great! Because Ready At Dawn and Sony Santa Monica will release The Order: 1886 for the PS4 this week.

It’ll be joined on store shelves by the more colorful Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for the Wii U (no werewolves in that one) and the more vicious Total War: Attila on the PC (the strategy game from Creative Assembly stars one of the most feared warlords of the ancient world).

Finally this week, Koei Tecmo will re-release Dead or Alive 5 for the PS4 and Xbox One as Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.

Total War: Attila will burn the world in 2015

Sega has announced that players will be able to take command of the barbarian hordes in the next Total War game, Total War: Attila. A 2015 release is planned for the PC exclusive, which is in development at Creative Assembly.

The Dark Ages approach. A time of famine, disease and war, where refugees in their thousands flee from a sweeping tide of destruction and death. Desperate barbaric tribes rally against the ailing might of a dying and divided Roman empire; the light of civilization gutters and dims. In the great steppes of Scythia, a vast and terrifying force gathers, led by a warrior king whose thirst for conquest is utterly unequaled. The Scourge of God, the very herald of the apocalypse, Attila the Hun.

“With Total War: Attila we will create a Total War game that will challenge and enthrall fans of the series,” said Janos Gaspar, Project Lead on Attila. “We’re reintroducing some features that fans have been asking for, such as family trees and skill trees, and improving many of the core aspects of Total War we know are important to them. But to really bring the period to life, we’re building on these foundations with many new strategic features for them to consider, such as advanced street-fighting, civilians, complete settlement destruction and dynamic fire that can rage across a city as armies clash. We want to push players to the limits of their skill to survive against the odds, and to love every minute of it.”

Creative Assembly will add “new gameplay mechanics which improve and add to numerous core turn-based and real-time systems” while giving players the chance to conquer the world as Attila or battle for survival as the last remnants of the Roman Empire. Either way, the game’s tagline certainly applies… “Your World Will Burn!”
