Total War: Shogun 2 stand-alone expansion coming

Sega announces Fall of the Samurai content pack set during West's arrival, Japanese civil war.


Total War: Shogun 2, the latest in Creative Assembly's long-running strategy franchise, launched earlier this year and moved 600,000 copies after just a few weeks on shelves. The base game has already received one downloadable campaign, and Sega has an even bigger content pack on the way.

Sega today announced that a new stand-alone expansion for Total War: Shogun 2 is coming in March called Fall of the Samurai. Set during the last Shogunate in 19th century Japan, the expansion pack takes place 400 years after Shogun 2 and introduces Japan's samurai to the modern weaponry of America, Britain, and France.

Fall of the Samurai introduces six new playable clans in the midst of a civil war between the Imperial throne and the last Shogunate. The expansion is also set to introduce new features, including siege battle mechanics, as well as new land and sea unit interactions and a revamped multiplayer dubbed "Multiplayer 2.0."

Pricing details regarding Fall of the Samurai were not announced. Total War: Shogun 2's previous non-stand-alone campaign expansion, Rise of the Samurai, launched for $10.
