Mark your calendars Total War fans, because A Total War Saga: Troy will be launching exclusively on the Epic Games Store on 13 August, and it will be free for keeps, if claimed within the first 24 hours of release. And they are quite open in explaining their decision of taking the exclusivity deal for Total War Saga: Troy. So yeah, while we're not getting it on Steam, we'll at least get it for free.

For now, the new platform is coming at the exclusion of the old one, but "in principal we'd like future Total War titles to be simultaneously available, from launch day, on as many store fronts as possible". For Total War's 20th anniversary, being paid to allow players to have it for free for 24 hours to celebrate it's anniversary was what won over the executives. It's a hugely exciting thing for us to be able to do for our players.

A Total War Saga: Troy takes the Total War series' famous blend of turn-based strategy and real-time battles and applies it to Trojan War, with players able to control legendary heroes such as Achilles as they try to defend the city of Troy. Creative Assembly wants to "reach new audiences", and "as a business that means putting Total War onto new platforms so that it can reach more players". Or destroy it. It depends on whichever you prefer. However, due to Google's methods of installing applications that are shared outside of the Google Play Store, Epic caved and also brought the game to the Google Play Store.
