The First Trailer by the TTW team - a low quality download
There was a time before the present age, a time in which men were closer to the gods, a time in which mighty cities dominated the world, a time in which heroes ruled the battlefield. These heroes looked upon the gods and performed deeds greater than any man today could, deeds worthy of the highest praise in poetry. Epic battles were fought between them as the gods looked on.
The year is 1270 BC, and in the land of the Achaeans the great king Atreus has just died. His father Pelops had conquered all before him, granting the land the name 'Peloponnesos' ('the island of Pelops'), and his dynasty reigned supreme in the city of Mycenae. Now his sons, Agammemnon and Menelaus, rulers of Mycenae and Sparta, look to bring the rest of Greece and the Greek world under their dominion. Many cities have already succumbed, but much of Greece is still independent.
The Mycenaeans are not the only great power however. North of Greece, the Thracians hold power and in far Epirus the barbaric Dorians are threatening to sweep down into Achaea. Across the Aegean Sea, in Eastern Anatolia, the Hittite Empire reigns supreme. It has had its ups and downs, but now it is by far the most dominant force in Asia Minor. Other Eastern nations cringe before it, and most pay regular homage to its great king.
One city however surpasses all the rest in riches and splendour. Though technically subject to the wishes of the Hittite Empire, this city dominates the Aegean coast of Asia Minor and grows extremely rich on trade. Such trade draws many into jealousy, and so there are many enemies. However, its brave warriors and great heroes stand ready to defend it from all comers. This is Troy. This is Total War.
This is the most poetic war in history.
Troy Total War, as you would expect, brings a totally new gameplay experience to Rome Total War. Our aim was/is to produce a mod that covers the period of the Iliad and remain as faithful to history as possible.
Of course, much influence has come from the film Troy, especially in the case of the new skins you will see in the game. Film Wardrobe designers can create some great ideas!!!
Some of the new features are:
* A complete new set of factions, including Troy, Mycenae, Sparta, Pthia, Aetolia, Amazons, Athens, Minoa, Hittities and more.
* A whole new campaign map, concentrating on Greece and the Agean.
* Totally new units: A completely new set of units that have been designed from the ground up, with new models and skins. New animations have also been added, by our in house animator Shrimpy.
* Heros: A totally new concept to Total War, command Achilles and Hector in battle. Every faction will have its own unique Hero, rest assured, these can wreak havoc on enemy forces.
