A Total War Saga: TROY Officially Announced

SEGA and Creative Assembly officially announce A Total War Saga: TROY, a new installment in the historical strategy series. This will come to Windows PCs via Steam in 2020, and Feral Interactive announced macOS and Linux editions should follow shortly thereafter. This news comes after the title was spotted on a magazine cover (this was actually first revealed in August through a trademark). They say this will go back to the Bronze Age, the earliest era ever covered by a Total War game. They also confirm the game will eschew historical accuracy by embracing some of the mythical creatures featured in Homer's Iliad. Here's the Announce Trailer, and there's a FAQ to answer any burning questions this raises. Here's the announcement:
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 wish list here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1099410
