More than 7.5 million players claimed a free copy of A Total War Saga: Troy from the Epic Games Store, Sega has revealed.
Sega and developer Creative Assembly decided to give the game away for free for its first 24 hours of sale as part of its timed exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store. The game is now at its full price of $49.99.
“We were optimistic but we couldn’t have predicted this level of excitement,” Rob Bartholomew, Chief Product Officer, said. “It’s been incredible to work with Epic on giving this brand new release away for free. Now we get to welcome so many strategy players – new and old – to experience this incredible Saga. We’re very happy.”
The game focuses on the Trojan War and allows players to assume the roles of Achilles, Hector, and many other legendary heroes as they fight to defend Troy or destroy it.
A Total War Saga: Troy is available now on PC via the Epic Games Store and will be coming to Steam in summer 2021.
