Help the samurai rise in Shogun 2's new DLC

0

Are you tired of the sengoku period? Most games, books, and media having to do with Japanese history are obsessed with the endless series wars between the Date, the Takeda, the Oda, the Chosokabe, and hundreds of other clans great and small. Don't worry though, because the next downloadable content pack for Total War: Shogun 2 has you covered.

Coming next month, it's the biggest pack Creative Assembly has released, with a full new campaign map that takes place in the 12th century, 400 years before the sengoku period, back when the very term "Shogun" was being invented. Back in that day, being a samurai mainly meant being a good archer rather than a swordsman, and wearing boxy-ass armor with shoulder pauldrons the size of picnic tables.

I personally am quite interested in this new pack. I've always wanted a Gempei War-based game that did not involve Giant Enemy Crabs.
