While Total War Saga: Troy released last month, the latest in Creative Assembly’s long-running historical strategy franchise has received a number of updates already. A highly anticipated update – mod support – has been delayed a bit.
The new update has been delayed “at least a month”, news confirmed by Creative Assembly this past week. The mod community behind Total War is quite robust, some fans have managed to create total conversion mods, making Total War adaptations for The Witcher, or some simply adding features like additional playable factions.
Alongside the news of the delayed mod support is the new content pack, bringing the amazons to Troy on September 24th. The new leaders – Penthesilea, Hippolyta – and their warriors, will be free to claim for 2 weeks via Total War Access.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
DIVE INTO GREEK MYTH
Inspired by The Iliad – Homer’s sweeping tale of romance and bloodshed – A Total War Saga: TROY focuses on the historical flashpoint of the Trojan War, bringing the conflict to life as never before.
EXPERIENCE THE TROJAN WAR
TROY explores this legendary 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.
CHOOSE YOUR HERO
Fight to save or conquer the kingdom of Troy as one of eight iconic heroes, including the infamous warrior Achilles, noble protector Hector, wayward prince Paris and vengeful king Menelaus.
BUILD A BRONZE AGE EMPIRE
Through Total War’s blend of grand, turn-based empire management and spectacular real-time battles, your actions can turn the tide of the war. Build your empire through strategy, statecraft, diplomacy and all-out war, as you conquer this vast and striking recreation of the Bronze Age Mediterranean.
FIGHT ALONGSIDE MYTHIC UNITS
Inspired by the famed creatures of Greek myth, you can call mythic units to your aid in the heat of battle, including fighters that resemble the Minotaur, the Cyclops, Giants and Centaurs.
