Sega Announces Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai
Sega teased about some news, and now they have officially announced a new expansion for Total War: Shogun 2, and stated that it will include an enormous amount of new content.
Some of the new features, as well as story elements are as follows:
Fall of the Samurai explores the conflict between the Imperial throne and the last Shogunate in 19th century Japan, 400 years after the events of the original game – a dramatic clash of traditional Samurai culture with the explosive power of modern weaponry.
New on the scene will be America, Britain and France, whose arrival incites a ferocious civil war to decide the fate of the nation. You’ll be able to play one of six new playable clans, supporting either the Imperial throne or the last Shogunate.
In Fall of the Samurai, we’ll be supporting features like railway networks for trade, ironclad warships, improved siege battle mechanics (with upgradable tower defences, each with their own speciality).
Other additions include 40 new retainers, 30 new armor pieces and a brand new 19th century avatar skill tree. The multiplayer is now hailed as Multiplayer 2.0 and will include a new Conquest map which takes place in the 19th century.
