SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON – April 25, 2012 – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe, Ltd. today announced that, upon completing Total War Battles: Shogun™ for IOS devices, players will gain access to the Sendai Clan-Pack for use in Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of The Samurai™, the latest instalment in the award-winning PC Strategy series from The Creative Assembly.
Total War Battles: Shogun™ is the first Total War™ title for IOS, and follows the story of a bereaved young samurai whose hot-headed thirst for revenge quickly embroils him in a war for control of the Shogunate. Players will direct his campaign across Japan in a series of real-time battles, unlocking buildings and units, and upgrading favoured troops as they progress.
Upon completion of the main campaign game, players will be awarded with a key-code that can be used via Steam to download the Sendai Clan Pack for Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of The Samurai™.
The domain of Sendai was fiercely loyal to the incumbent Tokugawa Shogunate, and an important player in the Boshin war depicted in Fall of The Samurai. A noble people, the Sendai endured the ages of turmoil to emerge as respected tacticians and sublime diplomats.
Players who begin Fall of The Samurai using the Sendai can take advantage of their following unique faction traits:
• Tolerance (-3 unhappiness from differences of allegiance)
• Tact (+10 to diplomatic relations)
• Siegecraft (2-turn reduction to surrender time when besieging castles)
• Respect (-1 to resistance to occupation across all provinces)
In addition, Total War Battles: Shogun™ will shortly be updated to include a new skirmish mode. This mode allows players to choose a difficulty level and head straight into the action against the AI on specific maps. The full roster of units from the campaign game is immediately available, and new legendary units can be deployed to help turn the tide of battle.
Total War Battles: Shogun™ is available now on the iTunes App Store for iOS devices, and will soon be available for selected Android devices via the Google Play Store.
