A Total War Saga: Troy review

Let's pretend there was no such thing as the Total War series of games. Let's pretend A Total War Saga: Troy was just called Super Iliad Guys - which it should be called anyway - but had otherwise come out of the blue exactly as it is.

Look for a nod to noted Total Warhammer 2 fan Henry Cavill in its next DLC

When he's not playing everyone's favourite Rivia man in Netflix's The Witcher, Henry Cavill likes to chill out with some Total War: Warhammer 2. It's a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed by Creative Assembly, either. They've only gone and put a nod to him in the game's upcoming DLC, The Warden & The Paunch.
