A Total War Saga: Troy Receives Mythos Expansion & Steam Release
The Total War spin-off title, A Total War Saga: TROY, is receiving a brand new expansion called Mythos and is coming to Steam this September.
What Is The Mythos Expansion?
A Total War Saga: TROY released back in August of 2020 as an Epic Games Store exclusive. Upon release it received decent reviews, scoring a 4 out of 5 from Eurogamer and 75% on Metacritic. However, one aspect of the game that a few people had issues with was the lack of mythological aspects, despite the game’s setting. The new Mythos content pack will finally allow players to experience the Trojan War “in all its mythological glory” according to Creative Assembly.
Players will be able to set out on one of three new expeditions to track, fight and tame legendary beasts. These include Cerberus, the mighty Griffin and the nine-headed Hydra. On top of that those who get the Mythos expansion pack will have access to a mythological inspired campaign map. It will feature all-new gameplay options and new ways to “entice the gods and enact their divine will”. Additionally, there will be multiple new units added to the game. These include the legendary Arimaspoi and Shades from the underworld. Existing units such as the Centaur, Giants and Minotaur (that currently appear as a more realistic version of themselves) will be redesigned to appear more like their mythological counterparts. Spells and regenerative magic will be added as “supercharged battle abilities” for these units.
Free Content Coming To A Total War Saga: TROY
Alongside the Mythos expansion a brand new game mode will be made available to all owners of A Total War Saga: TROYfor free. It supposedly “dramatically changes the gameplay experience” of the base game. This new mode is the Historical mode and it offers “refreshing gameplay that overhauls TROY’s features.” It will allow players to experience the Aegean conflict from a more realistic and “history-first” perspective. One of the more notable changes being made is that battles will be fought between generals and their bodyguards as opposed to all-powerful singular units.
