Total War Saga: TROY has been announced

Sega and The Creative Assembly have officially revealed Total War Saga: TROY, the next entry into the company’s Total War series. In this game, Total War will be taken into the Trojan War, where Greece is fighting against Troy. Much of the game will be inspired by Homer’s Iliad. 

The game is due to release on PC in 2020, first on Windows and later on macOS and Linux. The game has no firm release date and will be developed primarily at Creative Assembly’s Sofia office. 

Below, you will be able to see Total War Saga: TROY’s announcement trailer and get a glimpse of the game’s campaign map. 


   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. Audacious Paris, prince of Troy, takes beautiful Helen from her palace in Sparta. As they sail away, Helen’s husband, king Menelaus, curses her name. He will bring his errant wife home – whatever the cost!

King Agamemnon, wide-ruling lord of finely-walled Mycenae, hears his brother’s call. He summons Achaean heroes from far and wide, among them swift-footed Achilles and Odysseus of the silver tongue. The Greeks set course for Troy, towards inevitable war and slaughter. For there, on the battlefield before the great city, legends will be born…

Unlike other Total War titles, combat in TROY will be primarily based on infantry combat. In this era, relatively few military units utilised horses, making cavalry a much smaller aspect of the game’s combat.

Each faction within Troy will feature different campaign mechanics which impact their playstyles, with Achilles gaining access to some of the game’s most elite units while having his rage impact diplomacy and trade whenever the faction leader is insulted. Conversely, Hector acts as a defensive hero who will have campaign progression linked to family tasks that must be completed to avoid negative consequences. 

More information about Total War Saga: Troy will be revealed in the coming months.
