Total War: Pharaoh Preorders Are Live And Discounted

Multiple editions and preorder bonuses are up for grabs.


Few strategy game franchises manage to accurately convey the scale of ancient warfare the way that Total War does, and for the next game in the series, Total War is off to Egypt. Total War: Pharaoh takes place during the height of Egypt's power, during an age when Pharaoh Merneptah's power was threatened by new challengers to his throne. If you're looking to preorder the game, you can grab it at a reduced price at Fanatical ahead of its October release. You'll receive multiple preorder bonuses with your order, and all three editions will be delivered as Steam keys.

With a choice of eight Faction Leaders, there'll be unique playstyles and diverse rosters to master, as well as some diplomatic work to take care of between military campaigns.

For the preorder bonuses, you'll unlock the Avatar of the Gods cosmetic pack, which contains a unique skin for each playable faction leader, and the Heart of the Shardana cosmetic pack that contains unique Sherden outfits for bodyguard units. There'll also be an early access weekend included in this deal, with more details to come at a later date. There'll also be two other editions of the game that can be preordered, which cost slightly more but have also been discounted at Fanatical.

The Deluxe Edition includes a digital soundtrack and the first Faction Pack DLC, while the Dynasty Edition includes those extras, two more Faction Packs, and the Campaign Pack DLC.

Like other Total War games, it'll be up to you to seize the throne and defend Egypt from outside forces, while also dealing with societal disarray and natural disasters on the battlefield. This will of course mean throwing thousands and thousands of soldiers at these problems, and the best way to keep your army alive is with cunning tactics, ruthless strategy, and an ocean of soldiers willing to shed some blood.
