Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of additional details floating around about what the game will actually entail. It appears that, at least from what we can tell from the image, that there's a bronze statue with two Greek warriors who have spears and shields fighting against each other, with the tagline “epic battle in a world of gods and monsters.” Sounds like an adventure to us, alright.
It looks as though this particular entry will be part of the Total War Saga series, which currently includes games like Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia and Total War: Fall of the Samurai as well. Unfortunately, there's no way to really tell what all will be included in-game just yet, as the official reveal isn't until the morning.
Be sure to check back at Shacknews for more information on what the game will include when it finally debuts, with a developer announcement pegged for 10 AM ET tomorrow.

This seems like a really weird choice unless they are going all in on hero combat after Three Kingdoms.
Total War is one of my all time favorite series. I purchased every single one starting with Empire through 3 kingdoms, but I just could not come to grips with the Hero Combat in 3 Kingdoms. Even being a big fan of Warhammer 1 and 2 the hero combat in a realistic setting just took away the otherwise visceral experience from Atilla, Rome, Shogun II etc. I guess I'm broken for not getting it.
A Trojan War Total War would be great, if they go with a traditional look. I think it would be a squandered historical setting if it was just Achilles and Hector heros waving spears at each other with a 10,000 units falling around them.
