I’m not terribly fond of RTS games, but I’ve heard good things about SEGA’s Total War series. If you are one of these who speak highly of this game, you’ll be glad to know that SEGA have announced a standalone expansion pack for Total War: Shogun 2, next year. If you’re still a bit confused as to what a standalone expansion pack is, it’s basically an expansion pack that doesn’t require the base game like Crysis Warhead or Half-Life: Blue Shift.
Fight with honour
Shogun 2’s expansion pack is called the Fall of the Samurai and it will include “39 new units, new weapons, ten new ship types, three new agent types on the campaign map to choose from, four new historical scenarios, and brand new siege-battle mechanics.” This pack is expected to hit stores in March 2012 for a price that’s not been announced yet.
