Sega released screenshots and a trailer for "The Rise of the Samurai" today. "Samurai" is an all-new campaign for Creative Assembly's strategy game Total War: Shogun 2.
The new campaign takes place 400 years before the events of Total War: Shogun 2. During the Gempei War, six clans battled for control of Japan. The conflict resulted in the first Shogunate of the country and the rise of the Samurai as a ruling class.
Your battles and covert operations will be quite different in "Samurai" thanks to new units. The six playable clans offer up 16 new land units and 10 new naval units. The naval units will have three brand-new abilities to choose from (“Banzai!”, “Whistling Arrows” and “Rally”).The DLC also adds four Hero units - Naginata Warrior Monk Hero, the Tetsubo Warrior Monk Hero, the Mounted Samurai Hero and the Onna Bushi Heroine - and four agent types.
"Rise of the Samurai" will be released later this month.
