Total War: Attila – Viking Forefathers Culture Pack Steam




The Viking Forefathers Culture Pack adds The Norsemen as a new
playable culture to Total War™: ATTILA. These factions may be used
in Single or Multiplayer Campaign modes and Custom and Multiplayer
battles. With the Viking Forefathers at their command, players can
marshal the forces of The Geats, The Jutes and The Danes as they
launch southwards from their icy homelands on campaigns of looting,
raiding and conquest. In the bitter, windswept north, hard winters
breed hard men, and Norse warriors are redoubtable in combat on
land and sea. To these natural seafarers and expert coastal
raiders, the plentiful lands to the south promise glorious
victories and great plunder! Unique Cultural
All Norse factions share the Viking Raiders trait,
making them expert profiteers from raiding, looting and sacking.
Unique Faction Traits All Norse factions bear a
unique trait which further defines their strengths and play-style
in the Grand Campaign.

  • The Danes: Seaborn Immune to both high-seas
    attrition and seasickness, The Danes are able to weather the worst
    maritime conditions and make full use of their land units in naval
  • The Geats: Cold Blood The hardy Geats are
    raised in icy climates. As such they benefit from a morale-boost
    when fighting in winter and are immune to snow attrition.
  • The Jutes: Despoilers The Jutes are the
    ultimate profiteers in war, and gain significant income from razing
    settlements and destroying units in battle.

Unique mission objectives Players using Norse
factions will receive a unique series of mission objectives over
the course of the campaign. Unique units Each of
the three Norse factions can recruit two unique units in battle:

  • Geats
    • Thrall Spears Plentiful and Inexpensive,
      Thrall Spears can form a defensive backbone for any army.
    • Thrall Spearmen Thrall Spearmen represent a
      solid anvil for the enemy to spend his cavalry against, and can
      pack a deadly punch on the charge with their javelins.
  • Jutes
    • Huscarls The fearless Huscarls hurl themselves
      into battle, carving a gory path through the enemy ranks with their
    • Royal Huscarls Disciplined, highly trained and
      more heavily armoured than other axe units, the Royal Huscarls
      strike fear – and sharpened steel – into the hearts of their
  • Danes The seagoing Danes may recruit the
    fearsome Drekkar Dragonship manned with two extra varieties of
    troop options. These rugged warships can withstand much punishment
    before delivering some of the Viking Forefathers’ most powerful and
    vicious melee warriors – the Chosen Norse Marauders and the Elite
    Norse Marauders – into the fray.

    The Danes The Danes, or Dani,
    have achieved that rarest of marriages: barbarian vigour coupled
    with civilised sophistication. As the most southerly of the Norse
    kingdoms, they came into contact with the southern European peoples
    early on, treating them with an uncharacteristic openness. After
    this, many left their lands to seek their fortunes elsewhere,
    returning with more than just gold. One recognised the potential of
    the Roman alphabet, adopting it to suit his native tongue and the
    writing materials available in the north. This led to the creation
    of the first runic alphabet, which rapidly spread across northern
    Europe, greatly enhancing the Nordic peoples’ culture and trade,
    resulting in the creation of objects combining both exotic
    resources and traditional Nordic styles. However, neither wealth
    nor culture has dampened the Dani’s desire for conquest. Many
    northern tribes plunder foreign shores yet neglect their own; not
    so the Dani. Poised to take advantage of the ensuing upheaval, they
    strive to forge a grand Nordic empire to outlast that of Rome!
    The Geats Legendary ancestors of Beowulf, the
    Geati manifest all the intrepid boldness of the famous hero. From
    their stronghold on the southern tip of the Swedish peninsula they
    have naval access to the whole of northern Europe, allowing them to
    launch frequent raids without fear of retribution. The most
    glorious of these exploits are told in the Geati’s rich oral
    tradition, immortalising their leaders and inspiring a new
    generation to seek glory. While the arrival of the Huns in Europe
    has meant disaster for most, for the Geati it is just another
    opportunity. Recently their king, Gizur, led a force into central
    Europe to fight alongside the Goths in exchange for Roman gold and
    goods – there are rich pickings to be gained fighting for the
    highest bidder in the south. Crisis is blooming in these fertile
    lands, and the Geati are determined to be at its heart, profiting
    from it. The Jutes The ocean laps the coasts of
    Juteland, summoning its inhabitants to new adventures and
    conquests. As such, the Juti have always been the most intrepid of
    the Norse-speaking peoples, looking to distant shores or clashing
    over the sparse northern lands. Accordingly, they are in the
    perfect position to profit from the slow collapse of Roman
    Britannia, and relentlessly plunder its coast as its defenders
    dwindle in number. The Juti leadership use the spoils of their
    raids to make exquisite, prestige goods. Should the Juti succeed in
    conquering Britannia, many more will no doubt be forged. A
    successful conquest would be a great undertaking, and one requiring
    them to draw on the very depths of their fortitude. To drive out
    the remaining Romans, subdue the belligerent locals, and foil the
    ambitions of their Saxon neighbours who also covet this green and
    pleasant land – the Juti have vowed no less! ©SEGA. Creative
