FREE --> Total War: TROY (August 13 only!)
« on: July 31, 2020, 08:46:39 AM »
Gus posted about this a while back in the Epic thread.  Since we're about to jump into August, just putting this up in a separate thread for a reminder.

On August 13, TROY will be FREE to claim on the Epic Games Store for 24 hours! Register for Total War Access and subscribe to our newsletter as we count down to release!

A new Total War Saga game: TROY is the first entry in the award-winning series to focus on the legendary 20-year conflict between the kingdoms of Troy and Mycenaean Greece, now known as the Trojan War, set against the striking backdrop of the Bronze Age Mediterranean.

Combining Total War’s unique blend of grand, turn-based empire management and spectacular real-time battles, TROY explores this epic conflict from both the Greek and Trojan perspectives – peeling back the layers of myth and legend to reveal the realities that may have inspired them.

Play as one of eight famed Heroes, and fight to conquer or protect the legendary kingdom of Troy.

Keeping track of the different delivery platforms I already have is complicated enough.  I'm not sure I can take on another one, even if it means passing on a free game that I'll probably end up buying elsewhere when I can find it on sale.  Epic's offers are tempting, but not enough to make me pull the trigger.  If they were giving away Steam keys that would be another story.

Absolutely will be adding to my EPIC library. no worries there......however, based on the last few Total War releases, haven't played them much, this probably ends the same way...

I've been picking up most of their freebies, but earlier this week finally sold my soul (again) and picked up Industries of Titan for a $20 (using the $10 coupon).  Was really trying to not spend $$ on Epic.  Have been hesitant to tie any games to Epic since was not sure about their mod support, but came across a roadmap that showed they would be adding it.  And now today I see Epic is beta testing mod support on MW5.
