The Creative Assembly has trotted out the first DLC pack for Total War: Shogun 2. If you doubt the existence of ass-kicking nuns, look herein with your very own eyeballs.

Destructoid reports the Ikko-Ikki is a faction of war-like religious sects. It comes complete with eight new unit types, additional generals with specialised skill trees, one new armour set and the faction’s monk agent.

A new historial battle versus the Oda is in there as well, along with ten new retainers for the Avatar Conquest mode.

The DLC goes for $4.99 – and as it happens, the game itself is on sale on Steam for $34.

Shogun 2 is the long-awaited follow up to the original Total War game.

    Been playing this most of the day. I seem to be at war with just about every other clan in Japan. I’m too weak to attack a lot of them, but strong enough to not lose any ground. My units are more defensive so I have to goad them into the attack.

    I havent touched this turd in months. Certainly the weakest of the series by a country mile and the most ‘dumbed down’, whoops, accessible

    Most dumbed down? You’re kidding, right?

    The amount of whining i’ve heard about this game being too difficult is unbelieveable.

    Unlike previous Total War games, the AI is actually semi-intelligent and tries to win the game. Apparently people don’t like this and want the Rome experience where other factions are basically doormats you can either steamroll over or con out of land through the poor diplomacy system.

    As for the reduced number of buildings and units, this has a lot more to do with the setting than dumbing down. You’re obviously going to have a lot more variety in a game set in the whole of Medieval Europe than in Japan.

    Anyway – DLC looks cool. I love the Ikko-Ikki clan, so i’ll definitely be getting this at some point.
