Total War: Attila looks like it would be a great TV show. I would watch the heck out of the series these trailers could be advertising.

It helps that I’m a bit of a weaboo about martial history, but gosh, don’t you just want to know more about what’s going on here?

Happily, Sega sent some cliff notes for those of us a little hazy on the fall of the Roman Empire; this trailer shows the Sassanid Empire taking advantage of crumbling Roman control.

If this one doesn’t do it for you, check out the White Horse trailer, which is even better. Come on HBO, make this shizzle happen. The world needs more intense historical dramas.

Or I guess you could write your own story by playing Total War: Attila when it launches for PC in February.
