SEGA and Creative Assembly have officially announced the next part in the A Total War Saga series, TROY. A Total War Saga: TROY is coming to the PC in 2020 and the publisher has released its debut trailer.
As its description reads:
“In this legendary age, heroes walk the earth. Yet it takes only a single impulsive act to spark a conflict that will shake the world. The Greeks set course for Troy, towards inevitable war and slaughter. For there, on the battlefield before the great city, legends will be born…”
A Total War Saga: TROY draws inspiration from Homer’s Iliad, and will focus on the historical flashpoint of the Trojan War. TROY also promises to evolve the series with new period-inspired features.
Through Total War’s unique blend of grand, turn-based empire management and spectacular real-time battles, Troy explores this epic conflict from both the Greek and Trojan perspectives; peeling back the layers of myth and legend to reveal the realities that may have inspired them.
Players will realize their legend as one of eight iconic heroes. Therefore, players will dive into a character-led narrative drama and overcome their antagonists. They will also build their empire through strategy, statecraft, diplomacy and all-out war, as they conquer this vast and striking recreation of the Bronze Age Mediterranean.
