Guess this is the historical total war thread these days.

Total War Saga: Troy just got announced for next year, although there's been signs this has been in the works for awhile. Looks like they're going for a "realistic" depiction of the war, but with hero units a la Warhammer and 3K. Also there's a lot of Brad Pitt Troy memes on the subreddit now.

I assumed when I heard they were doing Troy that it would include "hero duels" as in Three Kingdoms, a la Bektor and Achilles and all the other duels in the Iliad.

Achilles is too OP, so they'll nerf him by having him sulk in his tent for most of the campaign

The FAQ specifically mentions there's hero duels in Troy. It sounds like there's a few tweaks from 3K, but not sure how significant they are.

You have to do a special spy action to even make him vulnerable to attacks.

Nah Paris will just do 1000% hero damage as long as he's not actually in a duel.

Yeah, he's a banned spammer. Normally we'd delete this thread too, but people were having too much fun with it by the time we got here.

New DLC announced: Mandate of Heaven, which takes place in 183 and concerns the fall of the Han Empire and the Yellow Turban Rebellion.

One notable thing is that once you hit 190 CE, the DLC campaign will transition into the default one which is real nice.

Here be the FAQ

New playable characters in the DLC are Liu Hong (Emperor Ling), Liu Chong, Lu Zhi, Zhang Jue, Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao. Also playable are Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Sun Jian and Dong Zhuo. They'll also be accompanied by a FLC Warlord in the form of Tao Qian for (I think) both campaigns..


EDIT: Tao Qian info
