'A Total War Saga: Troy' Ajax & Diomedes Faction Pack Later This Month - Screens & Trailer

Inspired by Homer’s Iliad, A Total War Saga: Troy will let you forge a heroic legacy in the late Bronze Age, the furthest back in time the critically acclaimed franchise has ever traveled.

In A Total War Saga: Troy, the fate of Aegean civilization will be in your hands; each choice you make will shape the lands from the mythical heights of Mount Olympus to the arid deserts of Lemnos. Experience history as it may have happened or shape the legend for yourself in this unique chapter of Total War™.

Homer’s Iliad is rich with myth, legends, gods and monsters. A Total War Saga: Troy casts these stories through a historical lens to consider what might have really happened but ultimately lets you decide which heroes will fall in battle and which will be immortalized in legend.

The battlefields will tremble under the feet of renowned warriors like Achilles and Hector but it will take more than brute force alone to lay claim to the legendary city of Troy. You will need to deftly manage a barter economy, conduct diplomacy among friends and foes, and curry the very favor of the Gods themselves before etching your name in the annals of history.


Out January 28th, the Ajax & Diomedes Faction Pack unleashes two of the most renowned warriors from the Iliad onto the battlegrounds of A Total War Saga: TROY, both eager to rip the fabled city down to its foundations. These formidable characters welcome in new and unique campaign mechanics, as well as a multitude of era-inspired warriors, veteran paragon units and more.

Ajax the Great is the shield that protects the Achaean Host, known for his unsurpassed strength and huge stature. His unit roster relies on slow, but very heavily equipped defensive infantry to hold the line, while his powerful missile units take advantage of protected positions.

Diomedes - the King of Argos - is a veteran in the ways of war and has used his martial might to establish Argos as an exceedingly powerful city, second only to great Mycenae. His unit roster is specialized in crushing attacks with well-rounded axe and sword infantry, combined with quick flanking units from surprising locations.

The Ajax & Diomedes Faction Pack also introduces free content for all players of A Total War Saga: TROY. This includes access to Hephaestus the god of blacksmiths and volcanoes, and the Divine Craftsman Epic Agent.

Ajax & Diomedes Faction Pack:

  • 2 New Factions – Salamis (Ajax) and Argos (Diomedes).
  • 18 new units - Including Salamis Marines, Argive Swordmasters , Ajax' Wall and more.
  • Paragon units – Veteran versions of regular units led by an officer.
  • 4 new faction mechanics & diplomatic options.
  • New Troy event - Stealing the Palladium.
  • Thebes and its seven gates campaign model and battle map.

Free Content:

  • New god – Hephaestus
  • New Epic Agent – The Divine Craftsman

Total War Saga titles channel the grand strategy and real-time battles of a core Total War game into an intense flashpoint in time, letting you determine the outcome of pivotal moments in history. This change in scope and perspective makes Total War Saga the perfect home for innovation, often leading to new ideas that go on to influence future tentpole titles.
