With Total War Sag: Troy being a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store for the first time in series’ history, fans may be wondering about plans for mods.
“However upon release, it will not have support for mod/tools hosting and distribution (workshop) and a mod manager in our official launcher,” Creative Assembly says.
Total War Saga: Troy is the first Total War game to launch as an Epic Games store exclusive, and it will be free for 24 hours on launch day when it comes out August 13.
In April, Epic posted an update to the modding support card that says the Epic Games Store modding platform is currently in quality assurance testing, and that it will launch with “one Store partner” – likely a reference to Creative Assembly and Troy – and “ramping up from there.”
Beyond mod support, Creative Assembly has considered some options for post-launch DLC for Troy, including the addition of some of The Iliad’s big-name heroes like Ajax.
