Monsters will be roaming the battlefields in the new DLC for the action strategy sim
A Total War Saga: Troy is soon getting a new DLC expansion entitled 'Mythos' that adds huge swathes of mythical content to the already massive game.
The big DLC for Creative Assembly and SEGA's latest action strategy sim will allow you to embark on grand expeditions as you search for fearsome creatures and harness their powers - recruiting their unique monstrous units for your army.
We’re here to tell you what’s new in the DLC, and what you can look forward to in the coming expansion.
So as the name implies, A Total War Saga: Troy - Mythos will add creatures of myth and legend to the world of Troy. You'll see creatures such as the Lernaean Hydra, the Griffin Patriarch and even the three-headed hellhound of the underworld, Cerberus.
Every creature you’ll encounter represents the beliefs and legends of the ancient civilization of Troy. In order to recruit the mythological creature into your army, you have to undertake a quest to track and fight the creature.
However, this will take your entire army to do, so you’ll be leaving your land open to any attack from your enemies. It’s your choice as to whether or not you think it’s safe to do so.
They’ve even reimagined the existing units as their mythical counterparts, such as making a horse into an almighty centaur.
Various smaller changes
The expansion also comes with a selection of other changes. For example, the ancient pantheon of Greece can be seen in the skies while you fight.
Sometimes, they’ll even help you if you’ve made them suitably happy with your actions. So basically, don’t annoy Zeus if you value your life and the lives of your troops.
In addition to this, you’ll come across divine powers that you can use to level the playing field of battles, some of which come from the gods themselves.
A Total War Saga: Troy - Mythos is also introducing a dedicated historically accurate mode entitled Historical Mode (creative, I know). It’ll be completely free to anybody who already owns the game, and changes the game so that everything is at an accurate power level.
You won’t be seeing the creatures of legend and myth here.
When does it release?
You can play the A Total War Saga: Troy - Mythos DLC and the free update from September 2nd. Remember, you'll need the base game, so get your officially licensed A Total War Saga: TROY Steam PC key from Fanatical.
