Afterward pack up their war hammer trilogy in the most blockbuster way possibleCreative Assembly just announced a new brand Total War The game is based on what the series has named it: actual human history. And this time we will go back to ancient Egypt.
The next game is called Total War: Pharaohand is set during the Fall of the Bronze Age, a period just over 3000 years ago witness the civilizations of the Near East, North Africa and Europe having a very bad times.
Here’s the game’s first trailer:
Because that’s extremely light in fact Total War details (and gameplay photos/videos), we have to visit the game’s Steam page (and this FAQ) for more info. It looks like there will be eight leaders you can choose from, ranging from Egyptians to Anatolians to Canaanites, as well as customizable campaign options like the ability to randomize starting locations.
Interestingly, it seems that, despite the possibility of some supernatural phenomena, Mummies-magic adjoining, this game is playing completely straight. It was the first time Total War did it in a long time; the war hammer the game is obviously full of wild stuff, Troy leaning towards mythology and even the last major historical release, Three Kingdomsthere’s a great part of it.
That doesn’t mean the same effect will not be here. Instead of having magic change the feel of a battle, pharaoh is introducing a more dynamic weather system to the game, where instead of battles taking place under predefined conditions, things can change dramatically in the middle of an encounter, as a minute the sun is shining and next you will be crushed in the middle of a sandstorm (the game will also feature dynamic fires that can burn cities in urban battles and torrential storms as well) ).
One big unanswered question when revealing the game is… how big is it, exactly? The series’ scheduling needs mean over the past decade Total War development has been split between larger, full-scale releases like Three Kingdoms and war hammer game, while in between smaller titles like Troy And Kingdom of Britannia has decreased.
just where? pharaoh Between these is an important question, because later games—branded as “Saga” to denote them as smaller titles—were not as good and almost poisoned the label like a point of sale. However, this game, despite launching at full price (it starts at $60), looks like… I don’t know, the scale is smaller than the full body game. Total War will? Especially since there are only three playable factions at launch (you can choose from four Leader of Egypt, two Hittites and two Canaanites).
We’ll find out soon; The game will launch in October on PC.
