FAQ is here









I have mixed feelings about this one.  I love that they're covering the period, but talk about "gods and monsters", especially the inclusion of mythical creatures in the unit rosters, is a big turn-off for me. 

I've wish-listed the game for now, but I think Troy will be a wait-and-see decision.

Bob, you are hereby sentenced to go back home ON YOUR SHIELD not with it. And no shield-sledding down hill.  :nope:

TOTAL TROYHAMMER!!  :D :D :D

I accept the mythological points. No doubt there will be mods, if not even an actual mode, more directly historical.

I think it's a safe bet that you'll be able to.  :)  And it's a period I'm interested in as well, so I know I'll end up getting the game regardless.  ::) 



Now there is another movie that I have never seen.  :)

I envy you.  I knew from the trailer it was going to be utter trash, but I was dragged to see it anyway.  Two hours of my life I'll never get back.  >:(

I'm hoping so. 

Although I'll concede I've been somewhat mollified by one of the dev blogs, which specified that the "monster" units will really be more like berserker-style troops wearing various animal skins.  Still not ideal, but at least it's less ridiculous than what it initially sounded like they were planning.

A new trailer is up...along with an announcement that the game will be an Epic exclusive until August 2021.  :kling:   Guess I won't be getting this until next year.

I can wait as well.  But I don't have to like it.
