Total War™: Shogun 2, the sixth instalment of The Creative Assembly’s multi award-winning Total War™ strategy franchise on PC. Total War: Shogun 2 returns to Feudal Japan 10 years after the release of the original Shogun: Total War™, and sees Creative Assembly using a wealth of new ideas and development experience to make Shogun 2 the revolutionary strategy game that their first title has proven to be.
It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Players take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and will use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal, re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of a pacified nation.

•New RPG skills and experience for your Generals and Agents.
•New Multi-stage Sieges - scaling the walls is only the beginning!
•New Hero units inspire your men and carve through the enemy.

Total War: Shogun 2 features 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 Total War: Shogun 2.
