"The trauma of the Hun invasion in the 4th century has shaped Alaric, fearsome warrior king of the Goths. Fleeing his ravaged homeland as a child, Alaric spent the rest of his life searching for a new place to call home. Can the beloved king secure a new homeland for his people in the territory of the collapsing Roman Empire?"

Alaric I (370/375–410) was the first king of the Visigoths, ruled from 395 to 410. He is famous for the Sack of Rome, an important event contributed to the decline of the Roman Empire. His invasion of Italy is depicted in the Alaric campaign in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten.

    • The developers probably swapped by accident the first and third scenarios' locations.
