About Total War: SHOGUN 2:
SHOGUN 2 is the perfect mix of real-time and turn-based strategy gaming for newcomers and veterans alike.
The Game is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Ōnin War during the Ashikaga shogunate. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the management of one of these clans, with the goal of dominating other factions and establishing rule over Japan.
The player plays the role of both the clan leader and general, alternating between the campaign, where the player manages land and armies turn by turn, and the battles, where the player takes control of the army on the battlefield in real-time.
Total War: SHOGUN 2 features enhanced full 3D battles via land and sea, which made a name for the series, as well as the tactical campaign map that many refer to as the heart and soul of Total War.
Featuring a brand new AI system inspired by the scriptures that influenced Japanese warfare, the millennia-old Chinese “Art of War”, the Creative Assembly brings the wisdom of Master Sun Tsu to SHOGUN 2.
