Talk about a Trojan horse here.

Troy - A Total War Sgaa_01

Yesterday, we got a new entry in Creative Assembly’s beloved Total War series with A Total War Saga: Troy. The game is one of the saga side games from the franchise that sees you playing through the part mystical, part grounded Trojan War. It also came with the unprecedented move with Sega giving the game away free of charge for the first 24 hours after launch. And well, hopefully it was a success for all parties involved, but at the very least a lot of people claimed it.

As reported by Eurogamer, the game was claimed by 7.5 million people during its free period on the Epic Games Store (which the game was released exclusively on).

“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.”

We heard from the developer yesterday that the game had been downloaded over 1 million times, which was already impressive, but over 7 times as many people have the game in their account now, which is quite something.

A Total War Saga: Troy is no longer free, so you missed the boat there if you didn’t get to it in time, but it is still available on PC via the Epic Games Store. You can check out the requirements through here.
