An independent campaign for Total War: Shogun 2, the "Fall of The Samurai" campaign is based on the Gempei War, a conflict between six legendary clans of the Taira, Minamoto and Fujiwara families. The expansion explores the conflict between the Imperial throne and the last Shogunate in 19th century Japan, 400 years after the events of the original game – a dramatic clash of traditional Samurai culture with the explosive power of modern weaponry. New on the scene will be America, Britain and France, whose arrival incites a ferocious civil war to decide the fate of the nation. You'll be able to play one of six new playable clans, supporting either the Imperial throne or the last Shogunate. The game also features railway networks, ironclad warships, improved siege battle mechanics, improved multiplayer and more.
