What's gameplay like in Total War Saga: Troy?
Traditionally for the series, gameplay happens on two plains. First, we have turn-based gameplay on a global map, where we run our empire – take care of diplomacy, trade, administration, or recruitment. The second is about the control of huge armies in real-time battles. Although the game will feature units that reference the ancient mythology, the game will not venture into fantasy – for example, the Minotaur will turn out to be a huge warrior clad in a helmet in the shape of a bull's head. You will also have to make sure the Greek gods smile upon you, for it will secure certain tangible benefits.
