Both SEGA of America and Europe have announced that a demo for Total War: Shogun 2 is to be released next week on Steam, but there’s also some information about pre-order bonuses for those lucky US types.
SEGA and The Creative Assembly will be bringing the next title in the Total War franchise to you gamers and this time it will perfect features from previous games such as full 3D land and naval battles and a detailed campaign map, while adding an exciting new multiplayer experience.
The demo will allow all armchair samurai to test their skills in epic land battles and on Total War: Shogun 2’s gorgeous new campaign map. By pre-ordering the game through either Best Buy or GameStop, Total War fans will be able to enhance their Shogun 2 experiences with retail exclusive in-game content.
- Players who pre-order at GameStop (online or in-store) will unlock and take part in The Historic Battle of Kawagoe. Set in 1545, the Battle of Kawagoe saw the Hõjõ clan launch a successful night time counter-attack against the besieging Uesugi, eschewing heavy armor and the collection of heads in favor of speed and stealth.
- Those who pre-order at Best Buy (online or in-store only) will unlock 1,000 Koku, the currency used in Total War: Shogun 2. Player’s campaigns will begin with 1,000 Koku, allowing them to purchase new buildings, train new units and upgrade their towns.
Not too sure about any other pre-orders anywhere else, so take a look on www.totalwar.com.
