Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall Of The Samurai Announced


SEGA has today announced that they will be releasing a standalone expansion for Total War: Shogun 2 named ‘Fall Of The Samurai‘.

The expansion will be released in March 2012. Set in 1863, the age of the Samurai is close to an end. The modern, Victorian world of Europe is battering at the gates of Japan with revolutionary new weapons that could spell the end of the Samurai Class. This new modern world can be either shut out or embraced and mastered. The question is will you back this new rising imperial power or the Shogunate of old. You must choose your patch and carry the country in the final battle for Japan’s future, named the War of the year of the Dragon.

This massive-scale, standalone expansion to Total War: Shogun 2 will offer a new experience for gamers. It offers six new playable clans which include the Satsuma (supporting the modern imperial Japan) and the Nagaoka (supporting the old Shogun). It also offers a improved campaign map which features new island provinces. It also features new features never seen in a Total War game which are Railways and naval bombardments.

Brand new units and abilities have also been added to the battles you will occur. On Land, there are 39 new units which include Gatling guns, US Marines and British Royal Marines. At sea, gamers have ten new ship types including massive, artillery-bearing steamers, torpedo boats and mighty Ironclad battleships. Coastal batteries will also attacking your shipping so be sure to watch out for well defended ports.

It also features three new agent types on the campaign map to choose from, four new historical scenarios, brand new siege-battle mechanics and a huge upgrade to Total War: Shogun 2’s multiplayer game.

They have also released screenshots and a trailer which can be viewed below. Let us know your thoughts on this upcoming expansion below.
