Total War: Attila’s highest graphics setting is made for graphics cards that don’t exist

In the future we will be able to cook food instantly, wear supercomputers on our wrists, and, thanks to global warming, swim to work every day. We’ll also finally own PCs capable of running Total War: Attila on its extreme graphics setting.

That’s right, Creative Assembly have made a graphics mode that current graphics cards can't use.

Creative Assembly: The Journey from Rome to Attila

Creative Assembly: The Journey from Rome to Attila

After a year of updates, both free and premium, and a whole new campaign, Total War: Rome 2 has become a formidable strategy game. Today, they launch Attila, a sort of standalone sequel, that builds upon the improvements Creative Assembly have introduced over the last year.

How did we get here? And what’s next. We asked Creative Assembly’s Al Bickham and Janos Gaspar.

Total War Attila: Everything We Know

Total War Attila: Everything We Know

Total War: Attila is marching on us, and before it’s hammering on our gates we need to take stock of what we know about this strange new enemy. It’s Creative Assembly’s new Total War game, so it’ll definitely be a blend of grand turn-based strategy, political decisions, and large-scale real-time-combat. 

But Attila is set during a very different time to other Total War games; the largest factions are failing rather than on the rise, and the enemy moves, plans, and fights in a very different manner to what we’ve seen before. And the biggest enemy of them all isn’t even something that can be killed; you can’t stab the weather. To prepare for the fight against Attila and his barbarian forces, lets get up to speed with everything we know.

Alien: Isolation has sold a million copies, no data available on sleepless nights caused

Creative’s Assembly’s incredibly authentic and terrifying Alien: Isolation has sold through 1 million units across all platforms, according to a press release from publisher Sega. Not earth-shattering numbers for a major game, but certainly nice news for a game that dared to be so different, and for a developer that stretched so far beyond its typical comfort zone.

Total War: Warhammer revealed in The Art of Total War

The games industry is full of secrets. They spill out of desk drawers, fill the break room, and block the chimneys. You’re liable to step in one at a games studio with every other step. It’s a small wonder that Creative Assembly’s kept Total War: Warhammer a secret for more than two years but it was going to slip out eventually.

And slip out it has, right onto the pages of The Art of Total War.

Total War Battles: Kingdom closed beta accepting signups

Total War Battles: Kingdom makes no sense when you say it out loud. It’s just a set of words from the same lexicon. Like saying Ballpoint Writings: Paper or Canine Hair Collar: Walk. Still, it's Creative Assembly’s stab at making a social game and it will likely consume players as wholly as Stronghold Kingdoms and Farmville.

Deep down, haven’t you all been calling for this?

Sports Interactive nerfed real world players for Football Manager 2015

Cristiano Ronaldo is a freak, statistically speaking. “Ronaldo’s scored 14 goals in 8 games this season," Sports Interactive studio director Miles Jacobson explains. “If that happened inside FM we would have people crying bug and calling the game every name under the sun.

“So, sometimes we have to balance differently from the real world."

Rome 2 DLC adds Massilia faction for free. Black Sea Colonies announced

Creative Assembly may be spooling up for Total War Attila’s release date but they’re still releasing new factions for Rome 2. Better still, they’re giving away one of those factions for free.

On 20 November everyone who owns Rome 2 will find themselves able to play with the new Greek faction Massilia.

That same day also sees the release of the new Black Sea Colonies DLC.

Valkyria Chronicles releases in 10 days, discounted for preorder

Better late — very late — than never. I was thrilled to hear that PC gamers would finally be getting a chance to enjoy Valkyria Chronicles, which was a much-needed breath of fresh air for the squad-based tactical wargame at a time when the genre seemed all but abandoned.

Now, we only have ten days to wait until this gorgeous combination of JRPG, third-person shooter, and turn-based wargame finally comes to the PC.

Football Manager 2015 release date set for November 7 (after traditional two week beta)

The new year’s Football Manager for Windows, Mac and Linux will launch comfortably in time for Christmas on November 7, Sports Interactive have announced. There’s a beta version available if you pre-order, and careers started there will carry over into the final game.

This iteration features the most dramatically revamped Match View since the switch to 3D - achieved with a little help from the Sega Europe PC studio massive.

Alien: Isolation slips horribly from a nearby vent onto the Steam Store today

Consult our Steve’s Alien: Isolation review, and you’ll learn that the official site stance on Creative Assembly’s first ever FPS is that it’s really top stuff. Which is odd, because the sensations he describes are distressing in the extreme.

“The alien is a constant, unscripted and exhausting psychological threat that follows you throughout the game," he writes.

Alien: Isolation is out today. Here’s Creative Assembly's launch trailer, to sell you on the concept of constant, voluntary exhaustion.

Football Manager documentary screenings are one-night-only - and selling out

Football Manager isn’t just the sim for PC users whose gaming education began and ended with Encarta. It’s the reliable biscuit base of male existence in the UK, where the game has spawned books, stand-up shows, and now a documentary.

An Alternative Reality will be shown in 35 cinemas in the UK and Ireland tomorrow evening - and via 47 broadcasters across the world.

Alien: Isolation review

Alien: Isolation review

Alien: Isolation is a first person stealth horror game in which you, a human full of the blood and guts you require to survive, must hide from and evade an eight foot tall alien creature who wishes to poke a hole in you such that all of your blood and guts spill out on to the floor.

It is this narrative conflict, this dramatic dispute over whether your insides should be inside of you, that is central to Alien: Isolation. It's a terrifically scary game by The Creative Assembly, a studio who've expertly engineered an alien AI of such worrying cleverness that I'm not totally convinced it hasn't crept out of my monitor and is standing behind me right this second.
