When you read this article, make sure you open your calendar and set a reminder for August 13, 2020 right now. Publisher Sega announced that their latest strategy game, Total War Saga: TROY, will launch for free on the Epic games store on that date.

The reason to set a reminder for that date is that the free offer will only last 24 hours. People who download the game on launch day will be able to keep their copy forever.

Total War Saga: TROY is the latest in the series from strategy experts, Creative Assembly. For those who would like to know a bit more about the series, documentary makers Noclip have just put out a wonderful, comprehensive history of the company. The doc includes an honest and tearful interview with studio founder, Tim Ansell. It's absolutely worth your time to watch the video:


The move to the Epic games store is one that developed in recent months. When announced last year, Sega originally mentioned that Total War Saga: TROY would launch on Steam in 2020. Now, the company has stated that the strategy release will be exclusive within the Epic ecosystem for a year, while already clarifying that the game will eventually land on Steam in August 2021. The advantage here is that people who take part in this free event won't have to wait regardless. Keep in mind, however, that the Epic ecosystem is not available globally and many have been complaining that these exclusivity tactics exclude them from participating in games they otherwise enjoy.

Being set during Greek mythology times, Total War Saga: TROY will feature several legendary people, such as Hector and Achilles. Moreover, players will get to relive the tales from Homer's Iliad.

Are you happy to get another game for free on the Epic games store or are you disappointed it will be there exclusively for a year? Let us know in the comments.
