Tons of folks downloaded A Total War Saga: Troy during its free period on the Epic Games Store.

A Total War Saga: Troy was claimed by 7.5 million players within the first 24 hours of its release.

The massive amount of downloads was driven by a time-limited free giveaway on the Epic Game Store.

“We were optimistic but we couldn’t have predicted this level of excitement,” said Rob Bartholomew, chief product officer. “It’s been incredible to work with Epic on giving this brand new release away for free.

“Now we get to welcome so many strategy players – new and old – to experience this incredible Saga. We’re very happy.”

Troy is now available to purchase on the Epic Game Store for £34.99, $49.99, €49.99.

The game will be released on Steam during summer 2021.
