  • Strategy Gameplay: Total War: PHARAOH is a game of two halves. One a turn-based open-world campaign with statecraft, diplomacy and exploration and the other intense, tactical real-time battles with thousands of troops across vivid Bronze Age battlefields.
  • Events Inspired By History: Experience an authentic recreation of Ancient Egypt and witness the death of Pharaoh Merneptah as you prepare your people to stand against the civilisation defining events of the Bronze Age collapse.
  • Diverse Playstyles: Wage war with three unique Bronze Age Cultures; the Egyptians, Hittites and Canaanites and choose one of their historical leaders to command your armies. Charm the courts as peerless diplomats, charge into battle as unwavering commanders or cause chaos as fearless warlords.
  • Conquer The Bronze Age: Prove your legitimacy to become Pharaoh, or Great King, and expand your growing empire on a campaign map that spans the rich cultural hubs of Egypt, Canaan and Anatolia.
  • Near-Infinite Possibilities: With a brand-new Campaign Customisation feature, no two campaigns will ever feel the same. Determine how you play with an extended range of options, such as random starting positions for all factions, detailed resource settings, the ability to toy with natural disasters and much more.
  • Dynamic Weather: Lead your soldiers through sudden and dramatic shifts in weather, such as torrential rain and sandstorms, and witness the tides of battle turn as it directly impacts the surrounding terrain.
  • Worship The Gods: Pledge your allegiance to the gods of this ancient world with nineteen deities to choose from, spread across each of the cultural pantheons. Show enough reverence to earn gameplay bonuses but disrespect them at your peril.
  • And Much More: Emulate the deeds of past Pharaohs, customise your bodyguard, embark on grand sieges, manipulate the courts, fight back against the mysterious Sea Peoples invaders and much more.
