A Total War Saga: Troy will receive a major update on October 22, and it’ll add a new god and a photo mode to the game. This free update will expand the game out a bit, and let you capture some of the imagery of the Trojan War that the game conjures.
If you’ve been playing Hades (or you’re simply a fan of the Greek classics), you’ll recognise Artemis, the goddess of the hunt. Artemis will be added to the game’s Divine Will system, and each faction will have access to her temple building chain. Pray to Artemis and you can unlock a light archer unit, and new missions are being added as well
A new Epic Agent is being added, too–Orion, who is available at the highest worship tier. He’s an incredible hunter, with the abilities Sudden Ambush (which gives guaranteed kills on enemy heroes) and Foe Tracking (which lets you track enemy heroes across the map).
The new Photo Mode, meanwhile, will come with 20 customization options to let you tweak your screenshots as you see fit. There are four main options to let you set up your shot: scene, camera, filters, and frames.
It’ll contain all the usual options you’d expect from a photo mode, including a range of frames and the ability to stamp the game’s logo onto photos.
A Total War Saga: Troy scored a 7/10 in GameSpot’s review. “Perennial issues aside, with Thrones of Britannia and now Troy, the spin-off Saga series has proved adept at delivering a kind of Total War that is more focused, flavourful, and even experimental than the mainline series,” wrote reviewer David Wildgoose.
