Total War: Shogun 2 dev diaries get into nitty gritties

Thursday, 10th March 2011 02:03 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sega and The Creative Assembly have released another double-barrelled developer diary for Total War: Shogun 2, turning the focus from the series’ past to its future.

This is the second two=parter dev diary for Shogun 2. The first, available here, looked back on the famed strategy series.

The new one talks about the game’s multiplayer, accessibility balancing, and influences. Check it out below.

Total War: Shogun 2 releases next week, exclusively for PC.

Thanks, Blue.

    I cancelled my pre-order since they cant even launch a demo without bugs. Kind of sets the standard going forward for yet ANOTHER half baked TW game. Such a shame.

    Its funny how they look back at what made the series a true great but yet never include some/any of those features any more as its more dumbed down than a Labour policy.

    Gosh, isn’t it astonishing how they all chose something different as their favourite part of the game- it’s almost like they planned it…

    I agree with them that the art, the calligraphy, the martial arts and the music play a hugely important role. What I can’t work out is why they only bother to do this with the Shogun games. Why not medieval art, medieval music, medieval martial arts (they exist), medieval calligraphy? Is it just because the unfamiliar is more exotic?

    Yeah I think it has been ‘planned’ and they are probably worried that this will become the least selling title in the series as fans have become fed up of being used as cash cows.

    Thanks Sega….
