SEGA® Europe Ltd. today
announced Creative Assembly's thrilling new strategy title reconstructing one of
the greatest stories ever told, A Total War Saga: TROY™. Inspired by Homer's
Iliad, TROY will let you forge a heroic legacy in the late Bronze Age, the
furthest back in time the critically acclaimed franchise has ever travelled.
In TROY, the fate of Aegean civilisation will be in your hands; each choice you
make will shape the lands from the mythical heights of Mount Olympus to the arid
deserts of Lemnos. Experience history as it may have happened or shape the
legend for yourself in this unique chapter of Total War™.
Homer's Iliad is rich with myth, legends, gods and monsters. TROY casts these
stories through a historical lens to consider what might have really happened
but ultimately lets you decide which heroes will fall in battle and which will
be immortalised in legend.
The battlefields will tremble under the feet of renowned warriors like
Achilles and Hector but it will take more than brute force alone to lay claim to
the legendary city of Troy. You will need to deftly manage a barter economy,
conduct diplomacy among friends and foes, and curry the very favour of the Gods
themselves before etching your name in the annals of history.
Total War Saga titles channel the grand strategy and real-time battles of a
core Total War game into an intense flashpoint in time, letting you determine
the outcome of pivotal moments in history. This change in scope and perspective
makes Total War Saga the perfect home for innovation, often leading to new ideas
that go on to influence future tentpole titles.
A Total War Saga: TROY will release on Steam for PC in 2020. Add it to your
