Steam is Total War, Day III: Go Battles or Go Medieval

Total War Weekend

Total War’s weekend invasion of Steam picks up full steam power! Today, that means two more games on tap for the Daily Deal, and more Spiral Knights and Team Fortress 2 items to feature.

Total Recap

The short version of what’s going on: the Total War series is on sale all weekend, including the Total War Master Collection on sale for 75% off. Each game featured will also automatically grant players access to free items in both Valve’s incomparable Team Fortress 2 and SEGA and Three Ring’s own Spiral Knights.

You can gain access to the items any time during the weekend and with any game you buy (or if you already own them). And! If you should purchase the aforementioned Master Collection, you also get a unique weapon for the Heavy class in Team Fortress.

Steam Daily Deals

Total War Battles: SHOGUN and Medieval II: Total War are both on sale today — 50% off for Battles, and 75% off for Medieval II.

Medieval II is the 2006 strategy game featuring 21 factions across a startlingly detailed 11th – 16th century Europe. Battles: SHOGUN mixes accessible combat style with depth of tactics for a unique Total War experience.

Featured: Spiral Knights Accessory

Spiral Knights

From Heavenly wings and Stygian spikes to heavily armored cats and rabbits, the Knights of Haven have long strutted their stuff through the Clockworks in style. But sometimes, a Knight’s just got to be a Knight. Go old school with this crusader-inspired armored look for your headgear.

The Medieval War Helm is available with either Total War Battles: SHOGUN or Medieval II: Total War.

Featured: Team Fortress 2 Item

Demoman’s Journal

There I was, holed up in the shelled and bullet-pocked remains of some backwater 2Fort. Blistered fingers from detonating remote sticky bombs were the least of my troubles. I’d been raining explosive death into every nook and cranny for a fortnight with nary dent made in the lot of ’em when I realized, for once in my life, the answer wasn’t more explosives. I shook off this momentary yet severe existential crisis and realized that to blow them up, I first had to show them up. That’s when I reached for my King of Scotland Cape and Crown, available with any purchase of Total War Battles: SHOGUN or Medieval II: Total War. One size fits all Demomen.


Tune in each day until October 1st for additional deals!

Once again: Special thanks to Steam community members [WDZ] The Ronin,BANG!, and Svdl for making this possible with their awesome collaborative work designing these Team Fortress 2 items and helping with the promotional artwork.
