If you can handle a little historical heartbreak this early in the morning, check out this new trailer for the latest Total War: Shogun 2 stand-alone expansion, ominously titled Fall of the Samurai.
Ahh, it's just like that Tom Cruise film, only with less Ken Watanabe. Excuse me, I'm going to go weep into my anime body pillows. If, after watching the trailer below, you still want to purchase this content, Sega advises that you can get hold of one of three unique clans by pre-ordering:
- The Saga are staunch industrialists. Forward-thinkers in both war and politics, they have embraced the technological influence of the Western Powers, and excel with artillery weapons and modern warships to further the cause of The Emperor.
- The once-humble Tsu are artful strategists. They are skilled in swaying popular opinion to the Imperial cause and are rightly feared for their use of Ninja and assassins both on the battlefield and as agents in the campaign, there are few who can stand against the guile and cunning of such an adversary.
- The Obama clan are famed for their control of power, their strength in governance and ability to influence the will of the people. Staunch defenders of their lands their people gladly suffer the burden of high taxation.
Fall of the Samurai is due in March, exclusively for PC.
