The new global strategy game in the Total War series, Total War: Pharaoh was released yesterday on Windows PC. On this occasion, Creative Assembly Sofia (formerly Black Sea Studios and Crytek Black Sea) and publisher Sega presented the game’s release trailer.
As a reminder, the events of Total War: Pharaoh takes place during the New Kingdom period from 1550 to 1069 BC, in the Bronze Age. The base game features 8 leaders of three nations: the Egyptians Ramses, Seti, Tausret, and Amenmesse; the Canaanites Bei and Irsu; and the Hittites Kurunta and Suppilulium. As usual, we are offered a deep global strategy with dynamic tactical battles and authentic combat units.
Total War: Pharaoh is not the first game by Creative Assembly Sofia in the Total War series. Before that, the studio worked on Total War: Rome II – Empire Divided and Total War: Rome II – Rise of the Republic, as well as on Total War Saga: Troy.
Interestingly, the last major project of Creative Assembly’s headquarters, which is called Sega’s most expensive project, the shooter Hyenas, was closed a month after the announcement!
