Troy is experiencing a renaissance. Unfortunately not in the real world (I doubt that the Turks would allow the return of the Priam dynasty, which in Hisarlik would rise swollenly above the surrounding villagers and build temples for Apollo), but at least in grandiose strategies.
And the Total War Saga: Troy turned out well above expectations, so we’ll see if it will mimic the upcoming DLC for the Czech Tahiums: Greek Wars. In it, the Kube Games studio will move far ahead of the events of the original game, from the historically documented reign of Philip of Macedon to mythical heroes, Agamemnon, Parida, Achilles and all other Homeric super cool.
Unlike the huge basic game, where you cut enemies from Macedonia to Asia Minor, Troy will be a time- and space-limited campaign that should take you between two and four hours. However, it will be two to four hours full of constant action.
Forget about exploring technology, slow and slow construction of infrastructure, diplomatic struggles with a myriad of annoying neighbors. He will fight here. The Achaeans, consisting of a free confederation of Greek kings and their men, will land on the coast of Troy and burn and kill until the most beautiful woman in the world returns to Sparta.
You can either play for one of the Greek heroes, or try to tear the Iliad to pieces and push the arrogant Danajce back into the sea. This should also lead to a great deal of replayability, because the conflict will be extremely asymmetrical, on the one hand highly aggressive, on the other strictly defensive.
Of course, it’s not just about picking up the largest possible wad of soldiers and marching under the Trojan walls. The Greeks can try to cut off the city from supplies, deprive it of a port, and rid it of bases on the coast. And Priam also doesn’t have to wait patiently for his empire to be consumed by flames – there are plenty of opportunities for counterattacks, even diplomatic ones. If, for example, such an Odysseus were persuaded to give up unnecessary wars and sail back to Ithaca…
It will simply be up to you, you yourself will take on the role of fleeting gods who manipulate poor mortals. And the only thing is that in Kube Games they are not so divinely fleeting and they supply a very good game with other content. Lovers of Greek history will certainly like to ritually cut the goat in prayer for it to continue for a long time.
DLC should appear in less than a week.
