Who says sequels have to come out immediately following a game. When you’ve got something that’s done well, it shouldn’t – and doesn’t matter when the followup comes out. Just ask Blizzard.
The Total War series is heading back to feudal Japan with the decade later followup to Shogun: Total War. The followup is set in the 16th century, when Japan is split into multiple clans who are hell bent on war.
Shogun 2: Total War will feature 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: Total War. Analysing this ancient text enabled the Creative Assembly to implement easy to understand yet deep strategical gameplay.
