Release Date: March 22nd 2012
ESRB: T – Teen
Without a doubt The Creative Assembly’s newest addition to their Total War series, Shogun 2, is one of the best historical strategy games out there right now. On top of that Shogun 2 itself also happens to be the most polished and well crafted installment in the long-running franchise to date which speaks novels when looking at past titles like Rome and Medieval 2 – both of which are still enjoyed by PC gamers today thanks to an active, hard working modding community.
Since its release in 2011, Shogun 2 has seen two significant releases: the mini-campaign Rise of the Samurai which threw players into the Genpei War of the 12th century and the new Fall of the Samurai expansion that follows the tumultuous period leading up to and including the Meiji Restoration of the late 19th century. The latter of the two is what we’re going to specifically be looking at today.
If you’ve been keeping tabs on Creative Assembly’s upcoming standalone expansion to Shogun 2 then you know it’s been sitting there on Steam for the last couple of months with no indication of when it’s coming.
Well not anymore.
Fall of the Samurai, an expansion which covers the battle between modernization and tradition in 19th century Japan, is set for release on March 23rd 2012.
