About This Content

- Huge new Campaign Map
- New ‘Expedition’ faction with new gameplay features
- 5 Playable Factions with additional new Units, Tech and Buildings
- A dramatic story-based, campaign challenge

The year is AD533. Within the last century, the Western Roman Empire has been wiped from the face of the earth.
However, the final bastion of Rome’s glory lives on in the Roman Empire of the East; this still formidable power dreams fitfully of regaining its lost grandeur.
Emperor Justinian knows there is but one desperate gamble left - an ambitious and dangerous venture to recover what is rightfully his, to reconquer the West before all that Rome once stood for is lost to history. The task is Herculean, with barbarian kingdoms now established and thriving throughout the Mediterranean; there is only one possible man to lead such an expedition.
His father’s former bodyguard, hero of the Battle of Dara, and the ruthless suppressor of the Nika riots.
Belisarius is the final hope of a dying Empire, the Last of the True Romans.

A Unique Campaign with New Gameplay Mechanics

The Last Roman Campaign Pack is an epic expansion for Total War: ATTILA, delivering a narrative, mission-based experience on a new, highly-detailed campaign map of the Mediterranean theatre.
Charging the veteran Total War player with the role of Belisarius and his Roman Expedition, you must reclaim Rome’s lost territories from the savage, hostile forces.
The struggle to fulfil your duty as servant of the Emperor Justinian is brought to life by a series of new story events and missions. The Emperor, the Empress and your own wife, Antonina, vie for your attention, demanding arduous and often contradictory services. Completing these tasks will provide you with the men and supplies you need, but offending the wrong person will greatly weaken the fragile Expedition.
Alternatively, you might declare independence and attempt to re-establish the Western Roman Empire under your own banner, seeking glory and immortality away from the court at Constantinople.
Will you stay loyal to Justinian’s vision of reclaiming Rome from the barbarians? Or will you follow your own path, establishing yourself as a new Emperor in the West?

New Campaign Map

The Last Roman’s Campaign map is a vast and highly-detailed representation of central Western Europe in 533 AD, featuring 35 provinces across over 100 regions, including Italy, North Africa, Spain and France.

Playable Factions

The Last Roman offers five playable factions – the brand new Roman Expedition but also the Ostrogoths, Vandals, Franks and the Visigoths – each one featuring its own faction traits and new campaign starting-position.
The Vandalic Kingdom is threatened by rebellious Sardinia and the looming Roman danger, while the Ostrogothic Kingdom is hamstrung by its pro-Roman queen and the demands of an unworkable alliance. Both seek to solidify their borders and make the most of Italy’s rich and fertile lands; but Belisarius’ reputation precedes him, and they know a cornered animal will fight to the last.
For the Franks and the Visigoths, the return of the Romans presents an opportunity. Both are growing kingdoms, fuelled by youthful vigour and a thirst for conquest. Now, the time is right for them to expand; with the other great powers locked in conflict for control of distant Africa, Europe lies waiting - waiting for a new, greater empire to rise from Rome’s ashes!

New Units

Alongside revisited unit rosters, the primary factions in The Last Roman also feature the following new units.

The other playable factions also feature new combinations of Western Roman and Barbarian technologies and buildings.

Let's see what CA did well with this expansion:

+New events revolving around Belisarius and his relations with Justinian, Theodora, and his wife
+Interesting reclamation feature, not just a horde copy-paste
+You can reform the Western Roman Empire once you gain enough settlements
+Belisarius can create his own Kingdom of Rome, breaking ties with Justinian
+New textures, models, and assets are well designed and beautiful
+Barbarians finally have their own settled kingdoms, making this feel similar to a Medieval setting
+Campaign map is huge
+New buildings for the Roman Expedition
+Very difficult for some factions, like the Vandalic Kingdom, which is busy repelling an invasion
+Family tree is utilized neatly to represent the 4 Frankish kings succeeding Clovis
+New tech trees for the Expedition and a mix of Roman and Barbarian tech for the kingdoms

Now, where CA screwed up:

-New factions (Roman Expedition, Ostrogothic Kingdom) have lackluster, thin rosters
-The Vandalic Kingdom got 5 new units, but none of which are present in custom battles
-The Franks and Visigoths were shortchanged when it came to new units, of which they got none
-The barbarian kingdoms have only Roman and some of the standard barbarian buildings
-The new models and assets are barely used, except on faction leaders
-The expansion has some very visible bugs

Note: I have not played this expansion for very long, but this is simply what i've seen of it so far, and the Pros/Cons that i've noticed.

My rating: 8-8.5/10

Whilst my review for Total War: Attila was a thumbs down I give this DLC a thumbs up. Primarily just because of the Roman Expedition campaign. The other 4 playable factions are not really interesting.

As the Expedition you'll encounter story driven missions from Justinian, his wife, and Belisarius' wife. This is the first time a Total War game has seen such depth within missions and it has made it a lot more fun. A lot of the tedious aspects of the base game are easily forgotten when you're following Justinians orders, and being rewarded well for succeeding.

The first expansion to this game that isn't a cheap day 1 DLC. Creative Assembly have made some questioning moves in the past, but this is not one of them. The expansion is worth every penny so far from what I've played. Great narrative, new units, new textures, more detail on the maps (since it's zoomed in), and the option to play the other kingdoms as well (such as the Franks, Visigoths, etc). Oh and the map is ABSOLUTLY MASSIVE!!!

An example on narrative would be this. While campaigning in Africa, your wife comes to you. You get the option to adopt a child and get a perk to help you out, but your men see you as weak. However on the flip side if you refuse the adoption, while your men see you as strong, you will earn the ire of your wife and she will come back to bite you in the future. This is but one of many options that actually weigh in on the game, and all of them have their positive and negative outcomes.

If you want some new life in Attila, you'd be wise to get this expansion. Naturally, since it's an expansion, a lot, if not all of your mods will be incompatable. Obviously you'll have to disable and delete them, so be warned.

Just as disappointing as Caesar in Gaul. Being a solely military force (unless you elect to declare independence) researching technology is obviously just not something that should be relevant. CA could at the very least have polished the blemishes in this by renaming it to being political actions like in Caesar in Gaul instead.

None of the new units were very interesting or useful at all. You're left with less units to chose from than in the grand campaign, and none are very good. The fact that you can't garrison settlements if you remain loyal means that the AI often just walks around you and captures them with little to no effort. Further, the AI ERE seems to plunder every settlement you capture for them, thereby reducing the public order and causing rebellions which quite frankly make no sense, since the peoples living there IRL identified themselves as Romans, and thus welcomed Belisarius as a liberator. Again, much like in Caesar in Gaul CA has fundamentally failed to simulate a realistic setting that is actually relevant to the events supposedly being the inspiration behind the entire DLC.

Despite being a military expedition, you still have to engage in your own faction politics identically to if you were running the entire empire. But CA really barges in the door and takes a monumental crap at you when the ERE from turn 1 throws itself right at Northern Africa, effectively taking over the war from you. That's right, the one single mission that you as the player had, to reconquer the Western Empire, is effectively canceled by the AI who will turn up as soon as possible with 20 unit stacks and besiege any settlement they find, thereby making you unable to conquer them even if you wanted to.

Ultimately this DLC fails to provide any new or interesting (or useful) units, forces you to essentially just be a Roman horde that happens to be allied to the ERE, and fails to depict a single aspect of the campaign that is the sole thing it's supposed to be based on.

Whether I think you should actually buy this depends mostly on how you felt about the base game. If you hated Attila, this probably won't make you love it, and if, like me you loved Attila, you'll probably love this DLC. But since there isn't really a neutral review button I'm giving this a thumbs up because it's the kind of DLC I think CA should focus on (i.e. adding new campaigns instead of factions that are already in the game). I sincerely hope they will make a few more like this one.

Their best DLC to date. Fanastic narration throughout the majority of your playthrough with a focused and interesting new scenario. Tons of new units.
4.5 out of 5. Can't give it a perfect score because every other faction besides Rome feels like somewhat bland.

I think the Roman Expedition is an intriguing mechanic, and I really enjoy the historical events in the campaign. I think this might be the best DLC campaign expansion so far from Creative Assembly!

Fantastic job, I'm really enjoying this game. Attila much like Napoleon delivers where Rome II failed (although Rome II has been fixed considerably) Attila came out of the box a finished and enjoyable product. As much as I loved Attila it left me feeling almost guilty for destroying the Empire I created in Rome II haha sometimes creating is more fun then destroying and Last of the Romans indulges me considerably in piecing back together the Empire that I've destroyed and rebuilt several times. To answer some of the very harsh critics 15 dollars isn't that much money especially if you pre ordered it on sale, the map is the same size as Rome II and Attila just a more detailed map focusing on the western territories. I love having the option to follow the story campaign for as long as I want till I feel like declaring independence or staying loyal and I love being able to control a more in detailed Roman military camp. If I had to make any criticism its that the game seems to the think the Roman expidition is barbarian culturally and they build grain storehouses as sanitation buildings instead of aquaducts, also the Barbarians all seem to build along Roman architectual styles. If you have Roman cultural backgrounds, and Roman sanitation buildings and Barbarian architure you should make it so that I know I'm invading a Frankish or Ostogothic Barbarian city and restoring from a barbarian thatched wooden village to a stone marble Roman city, it seems odd I'd be building Barbarian wells and sanitation systems, but aside from those minor issues (which please fix) I'm having a blast restoring the western Roman Empire to its former glory, thanks again Creative Assembly for another fantastic game!

Picked it up on a discount and didn't regret it yet. The smaller campaign scale makes it both quicker and easier performance wise compared to the main campaign - especially later on when the map is revealed. My computer plays Attila pretty well at min settings but this runs smoothly with very little slowdown.

I have won one campaign as the Ostrogothic Kingdom. With some clever diplomacy I set both the visigoths and the franks against the burgundians, basques, bretons and suebi, and then joined the war myself - pretty soon all three of us were great pals and by turn 33 (on hard difficulty) I convinced both the franks and the visigoths to join my empire. This resulted in me controlling virtually all of spain, france and italy. Unfortunately corruption went through the roof and i was losing 5k per turn.... spent the next 100 turns treading water putting down revolts, fighting remaining basques and carefullly selecting economic upgrades/ disbanding units to keep my head barely above water.

It was a fun campaign. I have also tried playing as the Roman Expedition but it's way too hard. I find it boring in horde mode but I got stomped by everybody when I declared independence - possibly because I tried to settle in europe instead of Africa. Although I had fun I'm not sure if i'd actually replay any of the campaigns as virtually all of the factions have the 'roman' subtype leading to mostly the same buildings (units are still different), which reduces variety. Did enjoy though, pick it up on special. It's also good for seeing a little glimpse of a time after the WRE fell, although unit and building descriptions are a litle bare (and the encyclopedia sucks, as usual).

This is possibly one of the laziest DLCs that CA has ever released for any of their games, period.

This campaign has nothing but three religions too- all of which are branches of just one. Christianity. There's Latin Christianity, Greek Christianity and Arian Christianity. Nothing more, nothing less; DESPITE the fact that they could've expanded north to show unchristianized Germanic Barbarians. Despite the fact the unchristianized Basques are in the game and clearly available to give their own unique religion to. Despite the fact Bretony could've been a clear choice to introduce Celtic Paganism into the campaign. Despite the fact Sardinia was still heavily Graeco-Roman pagan around this time. Despite the fact Moorish lands were still very split between paganism and Christianity.

Additionally, there's only three technology groups in the game. These are:
-North African

What the ♥♥♥♥ is this? Almost every faction in this mod is a Germanic one; even blatant ones that ARE NOT like Sardinia, Bretony and the Basques have a Germanic roster due to CA's laziness.

All you have that isn't is the Romans (Obvious) and the Moors; and the Moors aren't even playable and just use the generic base campaign Garamantes roster. Oh, not to mention, they're not even playable. Plus it's not even semi-realistic Moorish states; it's just one giant blob in the corner of the map.

There were so many things that could've been done to really make this campaign amazing and put it on par with the amazing Charlemagne; but for reasons unknown, this is the worst DLC for Total War: Attila alongside Viking Forefathers.

This campaign just ends up being so repetitive due to all these flaws. It's almost like CA didn't even care.

The Last Roman is definitely one of my favorites of the whole Total War series. Up until now its been a somewhat "shameful display" since the former undisputed Total War "King", or should I say "Shogun" was of course Shogun 2!!! Shogun 2 Shogun 2 all the way!!!! (Ok, Rome 2 and Attila do have their moments, but not like Shogun)
Now a Glorious Victory will soon be yours again, or will it be really be Justinian's victory? Time will tell. Time will tell...
Now download (or wait for the inevitable steam sale again like I did!) The Last Roman, and come ride along for the ride in Belisarius's struggle bus! Will you take your not-so-loyal wife, and your temperamental (to say the least) rulers Justinian and Theodora along for the ride? Just don't let them in the drivers wheel, those temperamental "mean girls". And nobody want a bus driver that threatens "to turn this bus around!" when they don't get what they want, which is pretty much all the time.
You'll wonder why Belisarius never did actually accept the Kingdom of Italy when the Ostrogoths offered it. He most certainly deserved his own Kingdom after how Justinian treated him, and what he supposedly did to him after his campaigns.
I really enjoy the plot driven and choices you are given. For the full effect, I suggest staying true to the Empire, at least until close to the end of the campaign for that role playing and events aspect. I would also suggest playing on at least Very Hard for other Total War vets for a fun challenge.

Mission Issued: Stress

"Belasarius dear, I know your a busy man, but choosing to ignore me and do the opposite to what I ask is rather cruel. To make sure you know how I feel, I organised some things for you. I know how much you love war, so I decided to kill the king of the Franks wife and, just to top it off, I sunk that ship Justinians lover was on, I cant wait until he hears about it! Oh and I forgot to mention that I accidently dropped some poison in the armies water supply. Im so clumsy!"
