'A Total War Saga: Troy' Mythos Expansion Announced And Dated, Making Steam Debut - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 27, 2021 @ 11:44 a.m. PDT

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.


The battle for Troy cannot be waged by man alone. In distant corners of the realm there are whispers of three ancient behemoths: A winged calamity reigning terror. A slithering serpent with many heads. A beast prowling the abyss. Track them, harness them and turn the tide of war.

Within the Mythos content Pack for A Total War Saga: Troy players can experience the Trojan War in all its Mythological glory.  

Create your own odyssey and embark on one of three new expeditions to track, fight and tame legendary beasts and unleash them upon your enemies: the Cerberus - a vicious hound of Hades that guards the abyss, the Griffin – a deadly master of the skies, and the Hydra – a nine-headed serpent spreading poison and madness.  

Spill blood in epic theatres of war whist commanding renowned heroes of the age alongside devastating mythical warriors. Multiple new units are yours to recruit including the legendary Arimaspoi and Shades from the underworld alongside mythological redesigns for iconic key units such as the Centaur, Giants and the Minotaur. Bolster their battle prowess with supercharged battle abilities including deadly spells and regenerative magic.   

Turn the tides of the Trojan conflict within a mythologically inspired campaign map featuring all-new gameplay options to execute and new ways to entice the gods and enact their divine will.  

Free content for all owners of Troy 

Alongside the titanic swathe of content in MYTHOS, a brand-new game mode will be available to all owners of TROY that dramatically changes the gameplay experience. The new Historical mode offers refreshing gameplay that overhauls TROY's features so that players can experience the Aegean conflict from a realistic, history-first perspective. Such changes include wars being fought between generals and their bodyguards instead of one-man armies wielding the powers of gods. 

Troy is coming to Steam 

Players who prefer to wage war on Steam can now take up arms and join the action when A Total War Saga: TROY and its DLC packs officially launch on the platform alongside the release of MYTHOS on September 2nd. There's never been a better time to wage war in ancient Greece as three editions will be available purchase for a limited time from launch. 

  • Standard Edition (Troy base game) – 25% off 
  • Mythic Edition (Troy base game + Mythos expansion) – 30% off 
  • Heroic Edition (Troy base game + Mythos expansion + Amazons DLC + Ajax & Diomedes DLC) – 40% off

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.

A Total War Saga: Troy is available for PC exclusively on the Epic Games Store for £34.99 / $49.99 / €49.99, coming to Steam on September 2, 2021.
