(Publisher: SEGA | Developer: Creative Assembly Total War: Shogun 2 | Genre: Strategy)
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. The game also features railway networks, ironclad warships, improved siege battle mechanics, improved multiplayer and more.
Based on the backdrop of the Boshin War period, the new campaign starts in 1864, a time of growing resentment against Western colonial power and influence. As Japan began to modernise and industrialise, the inevitable social and economic changes led to increasingly militant nationalism and antipathy towards the Shogunate.
The American, British and French nations played an important part in the story of the Boshin war and your relations with these foreign powers will be integral to unit recruitment and to advancing your technology trees.
Fully refreshed towns and other campaign map features reflect the different time period, with railways making their first appearance in a Total War title.
New steam-powered warships, heavily armed with modern artillery.
Campaign map bombardments: offshore naval units can bombard armies and cities in adjacent coastal areas on the campaign map itself.
