Today Total War: Pharaoh developer Creative Assembly and publisher Sega released an interesting new video of the upcoming strategy game.
We learn that there are different kinds of weather that can dynamically change during battles, rain, fog, storm, thunderstorm, sandstorm, and sweltering heat.
Not only do they affect visibility, but terrain will also change dynamically. For instance, precipitation can create mud. Sandstorms may let you hide your units or flank the enemy unseen.
We also hear about different types of chariots, which have different uses and different bonuses and penalties depending on the terrain they have to fight on. On top of that, we also take a look at the legacies and technology progression.
You can check out the video 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. If you'd like to see more, you can enjoy the original reveal, the first gameplay, a recent development diary, and another video about the Egyptian factions.
If you prefer a less historical setting, an extensive roadmap for updates for Total War: Warhammer 3 has been revealed a few weeks 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.
