Shogun 2: Total War - Multiplayer Walk-Through Video
Here's a tutorial video for Shogun 2: Total War.
The campaign map on the multiplayer is like the classic Shogun Total War campaign. instead of it being all 3D terrain its made to look like a real tactical planning map.
I'm getting this. Japanese history is so violant ,colorful & interesting. What a great looking game.
What a wates of time creating a multiplayer mode when everone will just cheat their a$$ off as always..
i cannot wait to get my hands on this - some variety in good old fashion would be good .. not like that napoleon crap - that interface was just horrible the olden (rome and medieval) style is a classic and this seems to show they learned from their mistakes
Its funny when they use english with a japanese accent, heh. If they want to be authentic why not just have someone spec japanese with subtitles.
It would seem that CA took out our ability to coop play unranked custom multiplayer battles with a friend against ai opponents. It is really going to bum a lot of players out if we can't do that any more. Why would Creative Assembly take away what is one of the most fun parts of a total war game? Why hamstring and tarnish an otherwise brilliant game. :( Answers anyone?
"And hyperventilating slightly because I've sped it up for you" Haha this guy is awesome. Also, one of the main reasons why I love the single player campaign mode is because you keep your armies after the battles are done and plus you paid a lot of money to make those units so it gives you a great incentive to win the battles while taking as few casualties as possible. Is the multiplayer going to work similarly? Like will there be incentives to winning battles while taking as few casualties as possible?
So how does getting new regions in the campaign map work? Is it like real time or turn based ? I mean, do you wait till the other faction also defeats an army or just keep going to the next region ?
Tactics looks really good in this game also it is getting very good reviews which means i have to keep an eye on this one..
My good lord - that has to be the most boring game trailer I have ever witnessed in the entirety of my life. I love C&C, CoH, WiC, but that... looks worse then a football simulator.
I'm still happy with my pre-order :) Anyone notice Kieran seems very fond of hats? He said something in a Napoleon TW preview about Major Picton's top hat being the source of his power
Going to be fun to play this in multy! BTW i would love to see the narrator from this trailer narrate a episode on the National geographic it would be hilarious!
I agree with Henoch, I might actually jump into the multiplayer with this one rather than neglect it. They've gone to all this effort to make it worthwhile, so it at least deserves checking out.
The Interviewee/host has really great comments! The game looks amazing. I will definitely be thinking about this game.
@phv86 Pretty sure there is a mode akin to the one you describe too. The one in the video is just one of the ways to play multiplayer.
bonuses:s tought this was war strategy game, not a rankup: Master Seargeant super rank master freakin seargant rankup game:S
this sucks i tought i was gonne get to play campain multiplayer against one other faction or many other factions. not play singleplayer with different "drop in" opponents:( did not like the idea of capturing and holding "flags" in the battlefield, either keep that in the fps category.fu im dissapointed about this game after playing the demo and watching this, and im a veteran since the first shogun, i loved rome, medieval and empire but this just sucks
