About the game:
In this legendary age, heroes walk the earth. In an act that shocks the world, audacious Paris, prince of Troy, elopes with the beautiful queen of Sparta. As they sail away, King Menelaus curses her name. He vows to bring his wife home – whatever the cost!
The game is inspired by The Iliad and focuses on historical flashpoints to explore the legendary conflict. Players can choose to fight to save or conquer the kingdom of Troy as their actions turn the tide of 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.
A Total War Saga: TROY will be coming to Epic Games Store on August 13, 2020, and it will be yours to keep for free if you claim it within 24 hours of release. The game will be EGS exclusive for a year and then will be available via Steam starting on August 13, 2021.
