Total War: PHARAOH Announced

Possibly in response to the news leaking, SEGA officially announces Total War: PHARAOH, a new installment in CREATIVE ASSEMBLY's strategy series. The Announce FAQ on the official website says this will arrive in October for both Epic Games Store and Steam. An Announce Trailer offers a scarab's perspective on the news, though we doubt the game will include a dung beetle faction. Here's word:
The Pharaoh is dead, and the people of Egypt, Canaan, and the Hittite empire cry out for a new leader. Many desire the power of the throne, but the path to becoming Pharaoh is a perilous one. As the leader of these great nations, you must overcome societal collapse, face natural disasters and fight to protect your people against invaders from far off lands…

Total War: PHARAOH will immerse players in the turbulent events of the Egyptian New Kingdom period where they’ll determine the fate of three great cultures as they fight for survival amid the cataclysmic Bronze-Age Collapse.
