Total War: Troy artwork for the goddess Artemis

[Update #2]: Total War: Troy's second faction DLC is bringing in Ajax & Diomedes.

[Update]: Total War: Troy is now adding both co-op and PvP multiplayer.

While Total War: Warhammer 2's Orion and his Wood Elves will have to wait until November for their big update, the Total War: Troy equivalent is looking to be in a much better position. To be more specific, Total War: Troy's update later today will be adding not only Orion as an Epic Agent, but also Artemis as a brand new goddess with her own unique effects and benefits.

What this means in gameplay terms is that you will have one new god to worship through the Divine Will system, as well as a new temple building chain that will be available to all factions. After completing a prayer to Artemis you will be able to recruit a powerful new light archer unit, the warriors of Artemis, while getting to the highest tier of worship of Artemis will grant you access to Orion who serves as an incredibly powerful agent on the campaign map.

Besides the small bit of new content, today's update will also add the highly customizable new Photo Mode. As the name would imply, Photo Mode allows you to capture the perfect image of an epic battle, all the while controlling factors like the time of day, the weather, the skybox, and the list goes on for a while. It's not the most impactful thing in the world, especially from a gameplay standpoint, but it's certainly going to be fun to mess around with on occasion.

All of this will be arriving as a part of today's (October 22nd) free update. So if you would like to learn a little bit more about the new content, or just keep an eye on when the update will go live, you should head on over to the official website. Have fun with the Photo Mode, and I expect to see some top-tier memes by the time the day is over!
