SEGA and Creative Assembly’s next instalment of their long-running strategy series, A Total War Saga: TROY, is launching today exclusively for the Epic Games Store.
Better still, for those who are looking to dip their toe into Total War but are unsure of spending any money, TROY is free to claim for the first 24 hours after launch.
A Total War Saga: TROY is a retelling of the Trojan War, with players able to control icons from either side of the battlefield. You’ll also be able to call upon the mythical creatures to help you during the battle, including the likes of Minotaur and more. Whether you intend on protecting Troy or destroying it, you’ll find plenty of content here.
We had the chance to review A Total War Saga: TROY ahead of release, and while it offers plenty of your typical Total War strategy gameplay, we found it to be a more stagnant entry in the series. Check out our review right here:
A Total War Saga: TROY is a big disappointment on many levels: mechanically, creatively, and technically. This reaffirms that a company with the resources to do great things prioritizes safe incremental steps forward rather than not holding back and aiming to push the series, and thus the genre, forward. The potential was there, but TROY ends up being a run of the mill, standard Total War experience and as a customer, reviewer, and player, it’s important to demand more from this venerable series.
