January 17TH, 2023SEGA® and The Creative Assembly Ltd, have today announced the High Tide update for Total War: PHARAOH. Introducing the ferocious Sea Peoples culture, this pack welcomes two new playable factions alongside their enigmatic leaders. With new campaign mechanics to exploit, units to command and gods to worship, are you ready to bring civilisation to its knees?


Check out the trailer below!








The Sea Peoples are warring hordes of nomads who sail the Mediterranean to exploit the chaos of the Bronze Age Collapse. With the ancient empires of Egypt, Canaan and the Hittites descending into total war, they arrive on their troubled shores to fight, raze and conquer everything in sight. As a horde faction The Sea Peoples must stay on the war path to survive, and only through constant conquest can you sustain the Sherden and Peleset hordes and emerge victorious.








Lead the Sherden horde as Iolaos, a young and determined explorer who has but one aim; to lead his warband to where the sun rises, razing and sacrificing everything in their path as a tribute to the gods.


  • Gameplay Mechanics

The Sherden are a nomadic, snowballing horde that rely on constant conquest to survive. Use the new Spoils of War mechanic to raze cities for extra resources, construct Nuraghe Campsto strengthen your armies on the campaign trail and use the new resource Eminence to establish your dominance over your fellow Sea Peoples tribes and absorb them into your horde.



  • New Units

Command a host of new units including Nuraghe Warriors capable of forming an armoured turtle-like Kelone formation to protect themselves as they advance, Harpooneers who hurl deadly barbed javelins at your enemies, and Sherden Archers who fire sulphur tipped arrows that set the ground on fire beneath your enemies’ feet









Sew the Bronze Age Collapse as Walwetes, the hulking patriarch leading our second faction, The Peleset. Taking to the sea after their empire was destroyed, The Peleset are in search of a new home and will build it atop the ruins of the ancient world if they must.



  • Gameplay Mechanics

The Peleset are a hybrid Nomadic/Settled horde that can both pitch camp and occupy cities on the campaign map. Spoils of War and Eminence are your friends as you embrace the unique challenge of balancing the need to stay on the warpath to survive with the need to settle, creating the foundations for a new Peleset empire to be forged in the furnace of the Bronze Age Collapse.


  • New Units

Command all new units including Oxen Carts, a dismountable chariot capable of flanking the enemy, delivering Peleset shock troops into the heat of battle. Peleset Marines; heroic warriors that can unleash volleys of javelins before getting into close combat, and Peleset Raiders; elite and aggressive  infantry who move fast and hit hard.
