Total War: Shogun 2 is a pretty amazing strategy game, combining turn-based planning and diplomacy with amazingly huge-scale real-time strategy battles. It also features a great co-op campaign for two players. There is much more co-op strategic warfare awesomeness to come, as Sega has announced Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai, a full standalone expansion pack.
Fall of the Samurai is based around the same period of time as the Tom Cruise epic The Last Samurai. The modern world is encroaching on feudal Japan. The Emperor’s camp wants to modernize, while the Shogunate wishes to keep things the same. A most interesting conflict, to be sure. Players will be able to choose either side as they participate in the battle for Japan’s future, the Boshin War.
New features in Fall of the Samurai include:
Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai is scheduled to release in March of 2012. It will not require the original Total War: Shogun 2 to play.
