Creative Assembly and Sega have rolled out a brief teaser for A Total War Saga: Troy that also serves as an announcement of tomorrow's full gameplay reveal.

The teaser, which is in the tweet below, doesn't say much but the franchise's name is more than enough of an indicator of what you're getting into - A Total War Saga: Troy is like Homer's Total War. 

Perhaps the best part comes at the end, though, as A Total War Saga: Troy's brief teaser announces a proper game reveal for tomorrow.

In case you're just coming onboard, you can check out the announcement trailer here , while the above trailer will get you up to speed with the story. 

As you can see, A Total War Saga: Troy puts you in the midst of the Trojan wars, where you'll get to choose to play as the attacker or defender. Creative Assembly said that Achilles and Hector are both playable in-game, along with a cast of other legendary heroes.

While it's safe to expect the classic Total War formula in combat, the dev made sure to accurately portray the Bronze Age era. Commerce and trade were of particular importance, as they played an integral role in keeping communities together. 

Same goes for weapons, and senior game designer Milcho Vasilev said, "In Troy, we have tried to represent the full variety of weapons that we know existed at the time as well as make some unique functionality for units armed with the large Bronze Age shields. This allows them to sling the shields onto their backs and use their spears two-handed or to just move faster without those huge shields getting in the way."

You probably know that A Total War Saga: Troy launches via Epic Games Store and it will be free for players who pick it up in the first 24 hours. Now, onwards to the gameplay reveal.
