SEGA and The Creative Assembly today announced that A Total War Saga: TROY will launch exclusively via the Epic Games Store on August 13th. Furthermore, the game will be free to keep for players who download it within the first 24 hours.
In other words, the game will be exclusive on Epic Games Store for twelve months. Additionally, PC gamers will be able to acquire a free copy at launch day. So yeah, while we’re not getting it on Steam, we’ll at least get it for free.
A Total War Saga: TROY plunges players into the legendary Bronze-Age conflict of the Trojan War, where they assume the roles of Achilles, Hector, and many other legendary heroes as they fight to defend the great city of Troy… or raze it to the ground.
Tim Heaton, Chief Studios Officer at Sega Europe, said:
“Thanks to Epic, we’re able to offer a Total War title for free on its launch day. It’s a hugely exciting thing for us to be able to do for our players. Not only does this mean that we can bring the tales and legends of TROY to a wide audience through Epic’s massive platform, but it also means new players will get to try Total War for the first time, experiencing the unique gameplay that the series is famous for.”
A Total War Saga: TROY will launch on PC exclusively on the Epic Games Store on Tuesday August 13th. The game will become available on other digital PC storefronts such as Steam from August 2021.
