It's hard to believe, but Total War Saga: TROY will arrive on the Epic Games Store in August — and what's even better, the all-new RTS will be available for free for the first 24 hours after its fast-approaching release.
That's right, you won't need to pay a single penny to get your own copy of the new Total War strategy if you manage to sign in to your Epic Account on August 13 and add the title to your cart at no additional charge.
Fortunately for players who would like to stay away from Epic's digital storefront, Creative Assembly's next major production is a timed EGS exclusive and its Steam version will make its debut at some point in 2021.
Unlike previous Total War games, TROY won't shy away from more mystical elements and units, introducing a plethora of fantastical characters and monsters — including the Minotaur on Crete, Centaurs, Giants, and the Cyclops — players will encounter during their epic quest to conquer all of Greece. "The historical series of Total War games have a treasure trove of themes and materials to draw from – maybe more than we can actually cover, although not for lack of trying," TROY Game Director Maya Georgieva explained.
"One such period ripe for Total War representation is that of the Late Bronze Age, especially the mysterious and dynamic time of the Bronze Age Collapse – it has been on our list for a long time. However, there are objective challenges to representing such long-gone eras in an engaging and entertaining way while also checking the boxes of what’s necessary for the game to play without lagging behind recent developments," she added. To learn more about the heroes, villains, and core gameplay mechanics of Total War Saga: TROY, take a look at the game's all-new trailers down below:
A Total War Saga: TROY is the first in the award-winning strategy series to focus on the Bronze-Age Mediterranean and the legendary twenty-year conflict between the kingdoms of Troy and Mycenaean Greece, known as the Trojan War.
A Total War Saga: Troy is coming to PC (via the Epic Games Store) on August 13, 2020; its Steam version will debut in 2021.
