Now players can create their own custom maps

Shogun 2 Receives a Modding Editor

Many RTSs and strategy games boast extremely enthusiastic and creative communities who love to create their own mods for the game. Happily, many of the heavy hitters in the genre allow them to do just that, and Total War: Shogun 2 can now be numbered among them. Via "the Editor," or "TEd," Shogun 2 players can now create their own custom maps for both co-op and multiplayer battles. TEd works for both the original Shogun 2 as well as its stand-alone expansion Fall of the Samurai.

Enormous Patch Released for Shogun 2

Fall of the Samurai, the expansion to Total War: Shogun 2, released earlier this week. What may have escaped your notice, however, is the huge patch that was applied on the same day. While it was considered a Fall of the Samurai patch, most of the changes/additions applied to the base Shogun 2 as well. Highlights include improved AI (and drastically reduced AI turn time) as well as a whopping 22 new battle maps! A large number of fixes and unit balance tweaks were rolled out as well.

Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai Preorders to Get Special Factions

A bit over a month ago, we told you guys about the upcoming stand-alone expansion for Shogun 2, entitled Fall of the Samurai. Now we have some word about some preorder bonuses for said game. Whether you preorder online from Steam or the SEGA Store or preorder a boxed copy anywhere else, you'll receive one of three exclusive preorder faction packs. Steam will get you the Tsu Faction Pack and the game's soundtrack while the SEGA Store will net you the Obama Faction Pack (and no, I don't mean you can send batallions of the president's clones into battle). If you don't like digital versions, preordering a boxed copy from another retailer will grant you access to the Saga Faction Pack as well as grant you a double-sided poster. Full details on these packs are as follows:

Total War: Shogun 2 to Receive Standalone Expansion, Fall of the Samurai

Total War: Shogun 2 is a pretty amazing strategy game, combining turn-based planning and diplomacy with amazingly huge-scale real-time strategy battles.
