Total War Saga: Troy's Epic Games Store exclusivity wasn't the only bit of news that took fans by surprise, as we also learned that the next entry in the spin-off series will be given away for free.
Here's everything you need to know about when Total War Saga: Troy will be given away for free on the Epic Games Store and how long it will last.
Total War Saga: Troy Free
Total War Saga: Troy is currently slated for an August 13 release date and will be given for free in the first 24 hours following its launch.
In that window of time, anyone curious enough will be able to claim Total War Saga: Troy for free and keep it forever on that particular Epic Games Store account.
Provided the Epic Games Store servers don't end up completely overwhelmed, 24 hours should be enough for players new and old to pick up the latest spin-off in Creative Assembly's Total War Saga series.
