The next historical Total War game has been revealed to be Total War: Troy.
The news comes thanks to an exclusive cover story in PC Gamer magazine, the latest issue of which has just gone on sale. A picture of the front cover – taken by PC Gamer writer Andy Kelly and posted to Twitter, and subsequently uploaded to Reddit – revealed that Total War: Troy is the next game in Creative Assembly’s Total War Saga series, which focuses on specific conflicts in history, rather than whole eras.

Dataminers have uncovered a slew of Batman content heading to Fortnite in the next v10.31 update patch.
The leaks have uncovered a new Explosive Batarang that is said to home in on enemies, or stick to walls and explode when other players wander too close. Also found in the Batman kit is the Dark Knight’s trusty Grapnel Gun, which will provide new opportunities to quickly gain height. The item description reads, “Pull yourself towards a target location and then deploy the Bat Cape,” suggesting it also provides one of Batman’s most iconic costume elements.
Update 9/18: Sam Esmail has spoken up about his now-confirmed Battlestar Galactica show, and revealed that it is not a remake of the 2004 Ron Moore-led series, but instead a new story within the mythology.
“BSG fans, this will NOT be a remake of the amazing series
launched because… why mess with perfection?” he said on Twitter. “Instead, we’ll explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar. So say we all!”
The wording of the tweet suggests that Esmail’s show will explore different aspects of Battlestar Galactica’s established mythos, perhaps akin to how Caprica was set within the same universe but explored the origins of the Cylons. With NBC’s Peacock streaming service launching early next year, hopefully it won’t be long until we find out more story details.
