The Sun Rises on a Brave New Japan: Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai Coming to Mac

Feral Interactive today announced that the historical strategy game Total War™: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai will be released for Mac this Fall. Developed by Creative Assembly™ and published by SEGA® for Windows, Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai is the acclaimed standalone expansion pack for Total War: SHOGUN 2, brought to the Mac by Feral earlier this year.

It is 1864 and Japan is under intense western pressure to open itself to foreign trade, heightening tensions between the isolationist Imperial forces and those loyal to the more outward-looking shogunate. Players will choose a side and deploy their mastery of real-time battle tactics and turn-based campaign strategy as all around them Japan hurtles into the modern age, a time of urgent political reform, dramatic social changes and rapid industrialization.

As they take advantage of Japan’s growing rail network and drive research into civil development and military technology, players must deal with unrest among a deeply traditional population. On the battlefield, the advent of mechanized warfare pits Gatling guns against hand-forged steel katanas, while at sea, iron-sided vessels fire torpedoes and bombard the coast with powerful artillery to destroy wooden settlements, farms, and even armies.

“In Fall of the Samurai, players will need ingenuity, skill and daring to ensure their battlefield tactics keep up with fast-advancing military technology,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “It’s the same exacting challenge that faced real life commanders in the second half of the 19th Century.”

Pricing, system requirements and a minisite dedicated to Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai for the Mac will be revealed closer to the release date. A trailer for Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai is available now on Feral’s YouTube channel:
