Ah, Total War Pharaoh, the historical strategy game that has been sailing through stormy waters since its arrival last year. With its "mixed" Steam reviews, the game's developer, Creative Assembly, has been navigating treacherous tides. But fear not, dear players, for there is hope on the horizon. Creative Assembly has taken bold steps to appease the disgruntled masses, offering refunds and lowering the base game's price. And now, to further quell the uprising, they bring forth the High Tide DLC as a free update for all.
As the sun sets on the horizon, casting its golden glow upon the land, Total War Pharaoh High Tide emerges from the depths. This Thursday, brace yourselves as two new factions crash upon the shores of this ancient realm. Prepare to choose between the ruthless Sherden or the constructive Peleset people, for the fate of the Bronze Age collapse lies in your hands.
The Sherden, a faction driven by chaos and mayhem, leave naught but destruction in their wake. With hearts filled with plundering desires and a penchant for sacrifice, they are determined to steer the world towards certain doom. Oh, how they revel in the chaos! As a player, you will have the privilege of commanding their warriors, unleashing them upon the unsuspecting lands.
On the other side of the coin, we find the Peleset, a faction brimming with hope. They arrive on the shores of Canaan in search of a new kingdom to call their own. Even if it means challenging the mighty Egypt, they will fight tooth and nail for their place in the world. These valiant warriors bring with them dismountable infantry chariots, allowing them to expertly flank their enemies on the battlefield. In the midst of the roaring furnace of collapse, they strive to stand tall.
But wait, there's more! Total War Pharaoh High Tide is not merely about factions and warfare. It heralds the arrival of 37 new units, two new paths to follow during the campaign—the Path of the Marauder and the Path of the Sea Peoples—and even five new deities accessible to the Sea Peoples across the entire map. These deities, along with the realm-specific local gods, will surely tip the scales in your favor.
As the clock strikes Thursday, January 25, Total War Pharaoh patch 1.1.0 and the High Tide update will make their grand entrance, free of charge. Whether you already own the game or plan to embark on this adventure in the future, both the patch and the update will be yours to enjoy. But beware, for the full patch notes are a behemoth of information, filled with AI improvements, balance changes, and bug fixes. So, dear players, set aside some time to delve into the vast sea of details if you dare.
While we eagerly await the arrival of High Tide, let us not forget that there are other RTS games awaiting exploration.
