From Press Release:
LONDON, August 13, 2020 – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and The Creative Assembly™ Ltd. are proud to announce the launch of A Total War Saga: TROY™ for Windows PC. TROY marks the first game in the BAFTA award-winning Total War™ series to be released on the Epic Games Store, where it is free to keep for players who claim the offer within the first 24 hours of release. It is also the first to focus on the ancient Bronze Age and is the furthest back in history that the series has travelled in its tales of epic conquest.
Inspired by The Iliad – Homer’s sweeping tale of romance and bloodshed – TROY focuses on the historical flashpoint of the Trojan War, bringing the conflict to life as never before. Amid the war, the player takes centre-stage as one the epic heroes of the age, tasked with defending the mighty city of Troy or razing it to the ground.
TROY offers players an authentic depiction of this fabled age, with a host of new innovations added to both campaign and battle gameplay. Featuring new methods of faction customisation such as the Divine Will mechanic, breath-taking Hellenic & real-world artistry, and an all new multiple resource economy – a Total War first.
“With TROY, we’ve created a truly unique Total War experience,” said Game Director Maya Georgieva. “We’re incredibly proud of what our team at Creative Assembly Sofia has accomplished in its recreation of this iconic period, and feel it is a great next step for the Saga series”.
A Total War Saga: TROY launches on PC exclusively on the Epic Games Store from 14:00 BST today and will become available on other digital PC storefronts such as Steam from August 2021. Further details on A Total War Saga: TROY can be found on the Total War FAQ here.
