Total War Saga: Troy Reveals Ajax and Diomedes Gameplay
Creative Assembly’s Total War spin off set in the Bronze Age of Ancient Greece
Greek mythological heroes Ajax and Diomedes are actually coming to one of the very best strategy games of 2020, Total War Saga: Troy, in the form of DLC later this month.
Creative Assembly’s Total War spin off set in the Bronze Age of Ancient Greece and the surrounding Aegean lands came out in August of year that is last. It was also released for free on the Epic Game Store, which led to Total War Saga: Troy being downloaded more than seven million times in the mere twenty four hours it was free.
This new Faction Pack DLC is going to feature the 2 aforementioned heroes and the factions of theirs, eighteen new units, new Paragon units, new epic missions, four new faction mechanics, and more. The DLC will even coincide with a free update that adds Hephaestus, God of Blacksmiths and the Divine Craftsman Epic Agent who’ll bolster units each turn with gear that will boost their armor and attack.
The trailer includes footage of both heroes from Homer’s Iliad and the skills of theirs. Ajax comes with the faction of his of Salamis which rely on slow but very heavily equipped defensive infantry to hold the line, while his powerful missile units take advantage of protected positions. Ajax’s Paragon units have area-of-affect buffing abilities.
What about queen Hippolyta and her sister Penthesilea?
Diomedes on the other hand is actually the king of Argos with units which include a lot more well rounded infantry and “quick flanking units able to ambush the foes of theirs from surprising locations.” Diomedes cunning allows him to produce some Paragon units he wants by using a set of buffs to any regular unit from the roster of his.
This particular DLC is actually the follow up to the Blood & Glory DLC which released in October, and as is actually custom with Total War games, adds customizable blood and violence to the game. Before that was the Amazon Faction Pack DLC, which included queen Hippolyta and her sister Penthesilea as heroes. The Amazon DLC was also free for a very short time but is no longer.
The Ajax and Diomedes Faction Pack DLC will release on January twenty eight for $9.99, exclusively on the Epic Games Store. The Epic Games Store exclusivity is actually for one year, which means the game and most of the DLC of its will be available on Steam this August.
