You'd better believe I had this one marked on my calendar since hearing about it in June. The latest installment in the Total War series, A Total War Saga: Troy, is free on the Epic Games Store, but only if you claim it before 9:00 Eastern, tomorrow Aug. 14.

Troy will tell the story of the Trojan War, which -- according to Homer's The Iliad -- was sparked when Paris of Troy took Queen Helen from Sparta and her husband, King Menelaus. The game will mix history and myth, offering up eight legendary heroes and crafting a "character-led narrative drama" to go alongside the series' well-known real-time battles.

If you don't feel like braving the Epic Games Store, you'll be able to get Troy on Steam next summer, though not for free. The list price of the game on Epic's store is $49.99.

There's already been a DLC announced for Troy, Amazons, which will be out in September and can also be claimed for free if you have a Total War Access account and link it to your Epic Games Store account; details on how to do so can be found in the Total War Saga: Troy FAQ.

UPDATE, Aug. 14: The offer is no longer available, but Creative Assembly is boasting that Troy was claimed by 7.5 million gamers during its 24-hour free period.
