Mark your calendars Total War fans, because A Total War Saga: Troy will be launching exclusively on the Epic Games Store on 13 August, and it will be free for keeps, if claimed within the first 24 hours of release. The game will be released exclusively to the Epic Games Store for one year, after which it will be made available on Steam and other digital stores.
Not too long ago, Total War: Shogun 2 was also free for keeps on Steam, back in April.
A Total War Saga: Troy is the first entry in the award-winning series to focus on the legendary 20-year conflict between the kingdoms of Troy and Mycenaean Greece, now known as the Trojan War, set against the striking backdrop of the Bronze Age Mediterranean.
Combining 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.
Get ready to play as one of eight famed heroes such as Achilles and Hector, and fight to conquer or protect the legendary kingdom of Troy.
Don’t forget to check out all the free games to be had for the month of June. We’ll be adding more as they become available throughout the month.
