Here’s the third part of The Creative Assembly’s reveal trailer for Fall of the Samurai, the upcoming, stand-alone expansion to Total War: Shogun 2.

This one kicks off with an oft-overlooked fact – Fall of the Samurai has the most modern setting of any Total War game to date. That means a whole bunch of exciting new military tech to come to grips with.

It also shows off the new third-person mode for artillery and ships – plus some shiny new graphical upgrades. Just look at it. Phwoar.

Fall of the Samurai launches on March 23. You don’t need the core Shogun 2 pack to play it, but you can still join multiplayer matches with those who do.
