A Total War Saga: Troy has a release date, and it will be free to download for the first 24 hours of availability on the Epic Games Store.

An Epic Games Store exclusive for one year, A Total War Saga: Troy will be released on August 13. It will also be a free download during its first 24 hours of availability.

“Thanks to Epic, we’re able to offer a Total War title for free on its launch day,” said Tim Heaton, chief studios officer at Sega Europe in the press release.

“It’s a hugely exciting thing for us to be able to do for our players. Not only does this mean that we can bring the tales and legends of Troy to a wide audience through Epic’s massive platform, but it also means new players will get to try Total War for the first time, experiencing the unique gameplay that the series is famous for.”

Announced in September last year, the game puts players in the middle of the Bronze-Age Trojan War conflict. Here, you will assume the roles of Achilles, Hector, and other legendary heroes as you fight to defend Troy – or destroy it.

The game will be released on Steam during summer 2021.
