But before you get all excited thinking about a Total War game that dabbles in Greek Myth with gods and monsters and mighty warriors, Total War: Elysium is actually a new free-to-play collectible card game. One inspired by Total War, with the Elysium naming referring to a city where past generals like Napoleon and Cao Cao can be found battling it out – rectangle style.
