Creative Assembly unveiled a new gameplay video for Total War: Pharaoh for Suppiluliuma, the last great Hittite king, who had remained silent during the Bronze Age collapse.
If you have an idea to rewrite history, you should be able to combine spirit and skill to create a unit of the Hittite Empire in face of growing chaos. Suppiluliuma faces difficult conditions and limited resources, all sides were under attack.
Fortunately, his noble nature, noble connections and reputation as a great warrior allow him to win the local kingdom and put him in a great deal of competition. He could’ve lived a peaceful life if he hadn’t been motivated by a burning desire to ensure that Kurunta, who he considers responsible for all the ills of the world, doesn’t sway his country into a disaster.
The game, starting with Suppiluliuma, is probably a dreadful challenge with frequent battles considering that he is expected to fight across several fronts. The biggest issue is that everything starts off from weak economics. As a result, he has many mid- and heavy units, strong tanks and reliable defense, but his ranged combat capabilities are weak.
