Next week, you will be able to download and keep Total War: Shogun 2.

SEGA is giving Steam users a free copy of Total War: Shogun 2 next week.

The Creative Assembly title was released in 2011 and was well-received by critics, and is on our list of best games to play on PC.

Here’s more on the strategy game in case you aren’t familiar with it:

In the darkest age of Japan, endless war leaves a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire. Only one will rise above all to win the heart of a nation as the new shogun…The others will die by his sword.
Take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal: re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of a pacified nation.
