SEGA and Creative Assembly revealed today that the next Total War Saga title is TROY, and it should be out sometime in 2020.
To be honest, I think this is one of the most perfect fits for a Total War game that I can think of, rivaling Napoleon: Total War as a favorite “single game” scenario for the franchise. According to the Steam store page, CA is going for a more historical approach so we won’t get gods and goddesses influencing the outcome of the war, but at least the Homeric heroes are in, so there will be plenty of time to see Achilles and Hector battling it out before the gates of Troy (as evidenced by the reveal trailer, which by the way, is a work of art when it comes to Total War trailers).
TROY is the latest Total War Saga title; inspired by Homer’s Iliad, it focuses on the historical flashpoint of the Trojan War, evolving 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.
Experience the events surrounding the era-defining Trojan War, brought to life as never before. Realize your legend as one of eight iconic heroes. Dive into a character-led narrative drama and overcome your antagonists. Build your empire through strategy, statecraft, diplomacy and all-out war, as you conquer this vast and striking recreation of the Bronze Age Mediterranean.
