    About time indeed, but I hope it's not going to be like Troy - too focused on mythology.

    WHAT IS THE HIGH TIDE UPDATE?

    The base game will contain ten playable factions from four diverse cultures. Eight are currently already playable, and two more will be added for free in January 2024.

    • Egyptian: Ramesses, Seti, Tausret, Amenmesse
    • Canaanite: Bay, Irsu
    • Hittite: Kurunta, Suppiluliuma
    • Sea Peoples: Iolaos (Sherden faction), Walwetes (Peleset faction) – available as part of the High Tide free update in January 2024.



    WHAT FUTURE CONTENT WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE?


    We want to make Total War: PHARAOH as engaging as possible and will continue to add updates throughout 2024 to improve the experience. One plan that we’ve always had since the early stages of development on Total War: PHARAOH is to expand the size of our campaign map as a free update, and to introduce even more factions and cultures to the game. We’ll have more to say, and to show, what that looks like in the new year after the High Tide update releases.







    WHY HAS THE PRICE OF PHARAOH BEEN REDUCED?

    We reduced the price of Total War: PHARAOH as we think this is a fairer cost of the game for players. For anyone who has already purchased Total War: PHARAOH through Steam for the original price, you will get an automatic partial refund from Steam directly. For anyone who has purchased through any other store, please refer to the information below for further details.


    HOW DO I OBTAIN A PARTIAL REFUND FOR MY DIGITAL PURCHASE FOLLOWING THE REDUCTION IN PRICE?


    If you purchased Total War: PHARAOH from Steam, the Total War Store or one of our approved retailers, you should expect to receive a refund automatically within 7 to 10 working days. You should receive an email confirmation once the refund is processed. Ongoing access to the game and any existing live content should remain unaffected.
    For anyone who purchased a physical copy please return it to the retailer you bought it from with your proof of purchase for a partial refund.

    So my understanding right now is that apart from the reduced price + partial refund, we get free updates and possibly 1-2 DLC packs. Interesting.

    I'm personally enjoying Pharaoh TW as a SAGA game, it's a smaller, more focused game.

    So....I know absolutely nothing about this game. The last TW game I ever owned was ETW. So, what's this game like?

    I played it a bit, it's decent, slowly improving to a solid game. There are some interesting new mechanics which I like, such as the politics system, but you can game it rather easily so you can gather resources much better.

    Not a fan of the whole resource split to be honest, it makes the game rather resource-oriented.
