A Total War Saga: TROY Claimed by 7.5 Million Players in One Day


More than 7.5 million players have claimed Creative Assembly and SEGA Europe’s A Total War Saga: TROY on the Epic Games Store within the first 24 hours of its release.

Inspired by Homer’s Iliad, A Total War Saga: TROY puts the focus on the historical flashpoint of the Trojan War in a recreation of the Bronze Age Mediterranean.

The conflict is told from both the Greek and Trojan perspectives as one of eight famed Heroes, and players can utilize both turn-based empire management and spectacular real-time battle systems. Each of these heroes is equipped with weapons, special abilities, units and strategic positions on the map.

You can view the official trailer for the game below:

We’re very happy.”[/testimonials]
