Total War: Pharaoh

Today Creative Assembly released an extensive video of its upcoming Total War strategy game Total War: Pharaoh

This time around, we get to take a look at the mechanics that characterize the game, including new features, while others are similar to previous Total War games but reworked. We hear about outposts, animations, relevant changes to siege gameplay, and legitimacy that lets you claim the throne of your nation. 

The developers also explain a mechanic that we've glimpsed in previous videos, the competencies, which are presence, fortitude, and ardor. You can then use these competencies to acquire titles that provide buffs for your characters.

You can hear about it directly from the developers below.

Total War: Pharaoh will release exclusively for PC on Steam and Epic Games Store in October 2023. A precise release date has not been shared just yet. We already know that it'll come in three formats. The standard version for $59.99, the Deluxe Edition for $72.87, and the Dynasty Edition for $91.46. A precise release date has not been announced just yet, but you can check out the original revealthe first gameplay, and a showcase of Ramesses' gameplay.

If you prefer a less historical setting, an extensive roadmap for updates for Total War: Warhammer 3 has been revealed a few days ago. While Pharaoh is coming out this year, Creative Assembly still intends to continue supporting its popular rendition of Games Workshop's fantasy IP for a long time, well into 2024 and even beyond.
