Total War: Attila - Garamantian FreeLC and Patch details


Free LC - Garamantians

Since the rise of the Roman Empire, Garamantian raids across its territory have brought swift retribution, with border forts springing up throughout the 3rd century AD to repel incursions. Yet Roman-Garamantian relations were not always acrimonious; both nations had resources the other needed and so the Romans - ever pragmatic - allowed mutually beneficial trade agreements to be reached.

Now, in the dying light of the 4th century, the Garamantians occupy a unique position. From their north African strongholds, they can attack the now-troubled Roman Empire, forging their own path in the west, or strike out into the seas to explore the unknown. The world is changing, yet the Garamantians are poised to seize greatness no matter what!

Scourge of the Desert: +15 melee attack during desert battles

Fractured Faiths: Increased public order penalty for religious differences between new religions

Attrition: Immune to desert attrition

Sunscorched: +2 sanitation

  • Fixed a bug causing units in a set stance e.g. spear wall, to drop their stance when engaging with the enemy. The affected units would engage the enemy without remaining in formation, and move away from their stationary location set by the player, ending up in a different location/position to where the player put them.
