For A Total War Saga: Troy, which was published around a year and a half ago, the next add-on is coming up. You can get the new expansion in December.
Shortly before the Christmas holidays, players of the strategy title A Total War Saga: Troy, which originally appeared in the summer of 2020, will be given fresh material. The makers of Creative Assembly announced the add-on “Rhesus & Memnon” together with SEGA.
From December 14th, the good piece will be available for just under 10 euros and will then bring in two of the most respected heroes of the Iliad. The faction package includes namely the Thracian king Rhesus and Memnon, the king Aithiopias. Both characters enable new campaign mechanics, new hero and unit abilities and also bring two new army lists with a selection of 49 different troops.
The units of Rhesos fight mostly without shields, but have capable strikers and good armor penetration. On the part of this faction there will be the following new mechanics:
- Countless multitudes: Rhesos must seek out the warring Thracian tribes and unite them under one banner. This gives him the opportunity to summon powerful armies to devastate the lands of his eternal enemies.
- Thracian rituals: The rhesus, blessed with immense religious power, performs rituals to delight the ancient cults of Thrace. They grant a variety of bonuses such as access to elite units, settlement bonuses and buff effects for armies.
Memnon is a distant cousin of Paris and Hector; he leads the multicultural armies of Aithiopia, a vassal state of pharaonic Egypt. The units consist of fast and lightly armored warriors who hold their own in lengthy battles. The following campaign mechanics are now enabled on the Memnon side:
- Horde: Memnon has only one goal in mind – to burn down every inch of Achaea. His armies are therefore unable to establish themselves in settlements, but they benefit from unique spoils of war that are used to defend Troy.
- Servant of the Pharaoh: Memnon relies on the influence and wealth of his Pharaoh and strengthens his ranks with soldiers from distant lands. By means of royal decrees, he unlocks the units of the four regions Aithiopia, Egypt, Canaan and Susa.
- Resourceful strategist: Memnon has no spies, envoys or priestesses to assist him in war. Instead, he uses his reputation to attract sutlers who reinforce his armies or grant him special actions before a battle.
