It's been almost a year since the release of the last full game in the Total War series and The Creative Assembly have kept fans sated with numerous DLC packs that brought new content to the game, but now fans will have something bigger to look forward to in the form of the games first expansion pack "Fall of the Samurai".
The expansion is currently set for a March 2012 release and is confirmed to be a standalone expansion, meaning it won't require players to own a copy of Total War: Shogun 2 in order to play it. Fall of the Samurai is set to focus on the impact that the discovery and coveting of gunpowder-based military technology had on the world of Japanese feudal warfare. Fall of the Samurai is intended to expand and extend the game's already lengthy campaign map, as well as add almost forty new units. There will be six new factions as well as an increased focus on naval combat. On top of all this, The Creative Assembly are promising an unspecified, but "huge" upgrade to the game's multiplayer.
Once again, the game is set for a March 2012 release date and you can check out the trailer below:
