The developer went on to say it doesn’t plan to make any of its future games Epic Games Store exclusives but noted it couldn’t have made Troy free without Epic’s help. “Making it available for free, for everyone to keep, during the first 24 hours – wouldn’t have been possible without this deal,” it said.
Total War Saga: Troy takes place during the Trojan War. Like in past Total War games, you’ll be able to manage your faction on a strategic map and then fight real-time battles that feature hundreds and sometimes thousands of individual warriors. In line with the game’s mythological inspiration, Homeric heroes like Achilles, Ajax the Great and Hector of Troy will fight alongside your armies. Creative Assembly’s Saga games usually have a narrower focus than the studio’s mainline Total War games, which should make this one a good introduction for new fans.
