Description

In this expansion for Shogun: Total War, incorporating the 1.12 patch, you get the chance to wage war based on the events in the Kamakura period in 13th century Japan. You either defend the country as a Daimyo against the barbarians at the gate or lead Kublai Khan’s Mongol hordes as they ravage the Japanese landscape. Playing as the invaders, you are not able to construct new buildings or train new units. Instead, you have to impress Kublai Khan by capturing territory to earn reinforcements.

Along with the new campaign, the expansion pack includes new units, new buildings, three additional scenarios and extended multiplayer options.

Trivia

The introduction sequence is from Akira Kurosawa's samurai epic Ran. The scene used (the siege and destruction of Hidetora Ichimonji's castle) involved hundreds of extras in full suit and the destruction of the actual castle set - all this before CGI was able to render even the most simple of objects realistically.
