AJAX & DIOMEDES IS OUT NOW FOR A TOTAL WAR SAGA: TROY
Thursday, 28 January 2021 — Out now, the Ajax & Diomedes Faction Packunleashes two of the most renowned warriors from the Iliad onto the battlegrounds of A Total War Saga: TROY. These formidable characters welcome in new and unique campaign mechanics and epic missions, as well as a multitude of era-inspired warriors, veteran Paragon units and more.
Ajax & Diomedes
Ajax the Great is the shield that protects the Achaean Host, known for his unsurpassed strength and huge stature. His unit roster relies on slow, but very heavily equipped defensive infantry to hold the line, while his powerful missile units take advantage of protected positions.
Diomedes, the King of Argos, is a veteran in the ways of war, using it to establish Argos as an exceedingly powerful city, second only to great Mycenae. His unit roster is specialized in crushing attacks with well-rounded axe and sword infantry, combined with quick flanking units from surprising locations.
Deadly New Units
With the might of Achaea at their disposal, the Ajax & Diomedes roster features 18 new units ready for recruitment. These warriors range from frontline units such as Argive Axemen and Salamis Spearmen to faction elites such as Ajax’s Wall and Argive Swordmasters.
This Faction Pack also welcomes free content for all players of A Total War Saga: TROY. This includes access to Hephaestus – the god of blacksmiths & volcanoes – within the pantheon of the gods, and the Divine Craftsman Epic Agent, who can permanently upgrade settlements.
