Total War: Pharaoh shares new deep dive on Egyptian faction leaders

Total War: Pharaoh's new deep dive shows off the game's Egyptian faction leaders.

Following the game’s reveal, SEGA and Creative Assembly released a deep dive video on Egyptian faction leaders in Total War: Pharaoh.

This next Total War game is set in Ancient Egypt, specifically in the Egyptian New Kingdom period amidst the Bronze-Age Collapse. While the announcement gave some interesting details about the game, this new deep dive video gives more new info, specifically about the historical leaders that players can choose in the game.

Check out the video here:

Along with the deep dive video, Creative Assembly shared a rundown of the four unique historical leaders:

  • Seti knows but one language and that is war. He is the rightful heir to the throne of Egypt and his playstyle is geared almost entirely towards aggressive expansionism. Using large numbers of expendable troops, he hopes to overwhelm the enemy before his exceptional light and medium infantry deal a decisive blow.
  • Tausret is the wife of Seti, but she harbours imperial ambitions of her own. A methodical genius, she constructs elaborate economic plans to grow her empire and overcome her foes. Using her vast resource network, she builds powerful chariot-focused armies to crush her enemies.
  • Amenmesse is the Viceroy of Kush and understands that true power over man isn’t through loyalty, but money. Using his vast resources, he can either buy strength or barter for it at the diplomacy table. With his mighty Kushite archers in tow, he aims to blot out the sun with a hail of arrows.
  • Ramesses is the pretender to the throne and hopes to emulate the deeds of his namesake, the great Ramesses II. Young and ambitious, his armies are comprised of elite warriors that are few in count but expertly balanced.

Total War: Pharaoh will be released in October 2023 on PC, and pre-orders are now available at the game’s official store, Steam, or the Epic Games Store.  Pre-orders will come with the ability to take part in an Early-Access Weekend, the Avatar of the Gods Cosmetic Pack, and the Heart of the Shardana Cosmetic Pack.
