    Those look like Germans that have never worked on the field, not Myceneans nor (as I think) Phoenicians were.

    Apparently they're sending out campaign and battle gameplay videos with different heroes. Here are two with Agamemnon and Sarpedon.

    Sarpedon:

    So, three things to dissect here:
    1 - his voice. aah, aaaah, ahah. What sort of shout is that? Is it even a shout? I don't quite comprehend the meaning of it.
    2 - The Walk - the model is kinda cool and I do like the look at first glance, but he looks like he's in the ministry of the silly walks, or doing some serious powerwalking when moving forward.
    3 - The charge - What are they running at? It's just a plain, open, empty field. Why do a rallying cry (if it can be called that) and then have everyone charge at nothing?

    In the video about siege battles, I noticed that contrast between the ruined walls (shown at about 1:36) and the walls in good condition. The presenter suggests that the ruined walls reflect an early build. However, didn't someone say in a previous video that there isn't a wooden horse in the game, and that the fall of Troy could have been linked to an earthquake? (I believe there's evidence for the earthquake theory). The ruined walls could be consistent with an earthquake event in the game. Of course, the presenter's point may be that the developers have taken out the earthquake event in response to feedback.

    They are presenting multiple scenarios actually depending on the choices you make on the game. The wooden horse is there but only if you follow or help the Odysseus path. Then there is earthquake but that is also triggered if you have good standing with Poseidon for he was the god of earthquakes. Can't remember the third one at the moment.

    Thrones of Britannia was “a valuable lesson” for A Total War Saga: Troy
    Our research shows that there are three main theories of what the Trojan Horse might actually have been, so we are representing three kinds of Trojan Horse in the game. One theory is that the Trojan Horse may actually have been an earthquake, because the horse is a symbol of Poseidon. Poseidon is the god of the sea and the lord of earthquakes. He really, really hates Troy in the Iliad.

    Archaeological research also shows that at a certain point when Troy was under siege, there might have been an earthquake, because signs of violence coincide with piles of rubble that an earthquake may have left. What this means in the game is that events will happen every so often in which an earthquake hits Troy. Buildings are damaged, the garrison is severely depleted, and you get a different battle map of Troy, where there are breaches in the walls.

    It’s much easier to take the city then. So if your aim is to capture Troy, you need to look for these windows of opportunity, and if you’re one of the factions that wants to defend the city, you need to be extremely careful when the earthquake strikes. You need to send help to the city, if it’s threatened in any way.
