  • Shogun Total War 2!

    Found this article:

    Sega has been teasing the release of an all-new Total War game for the last week or so, with a full reveal set for E3. Looks like their cover may have been blown by some sloppy pre-show organisation, however.

    Booking some press visits for the upcoming trade event, Turkish site Oyungezer says it was pencilled in by Sega Europe for a 2:30pm appointment to talk about Shogun 2: Total War. A game that, as of May 2010, does not exist in the public consciousness.

    Many people had hoped for this ever since Creative Assembly said it was "returning to its roots" with the next Total War, and they'll no doubt be as happy with a remake of Shogun as they were with the excellent remake of Medieval: Total War.

    Me, though, I can't help but feel a little disappointed. I really dig the gunpowder combat (not the type found in Shogun and Medieval, proper guns) and global trade in Empire, and was hoping the next full game would build on this and present us with a Victorian-era title, complete with British Empire, American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian tussle. Guess not!

    I say, "ABOUT TIME!" Tens of thousands of us have been waiting for this forever and hopefully its true. If CA and Sega do it right, it will be an excellent game. Of course with their issues with trying to make an intellegent AI and constant DLC, it may make things worse, I dont know.

    Anyone have any thoughts? Would you rather see it continue to be "future" instead?

    hell yes, I just hope to god they have spent a lot more time on the AI this time, it took a hell of a lot of worth from stuff like Darthmod to get the AI going well and even then it should have been developed way better by CA

    I hope they make a Rome 2 Total War next and flesh out the other factions as much as the Romans

      Im glad they are going back to mele, it works out so much better on the the Total war game engines. Shogun had some badass looking units too

        I was hoping for Caveman: Total War.

        Joking aside I can't say I'm excited about this at all. I really want Medieval 3 tbh. Might sound to soon but I think thats where the series reached its full potential campaign and battle wise.

            I hate M2TW grand campaign. Campaigns in Kingdoms are much better IMHO. The grand campaign is too big and it takes 1.5 years per turn to do anything. I'd rather they have smaller time scale and faster pace, but constraint the players with scant economy so that resources and troops have to be employed sparingly and wisely.

            Online battles of M2TW is more chaotic and disorder than RTW or ETW. Some people like it, and some people don't. I haven't try online yet figuring that I can't win any battle anyway.

              The original Shogun was awesome as was the original MTW

              Rome was sort of a turning point because it did blow me away when I played it, the pesky Romans were OP but meh, got to play as the Greeks or Carthage! The mods afterwards simply made it stunning, Extended Greek Mod etc, all made me love that game x9001

              MTW2 sort of built on it, it had its problems (bat**** insane easy sometimes, ******* AI in terms of diplomacy) but again mods perfected it, Kingdoms was a welcome change in pace, but I myself loved long campaigns where I could bide my time and be very sneaky, Kingdoms Grand Campaign Mod was my favourite, added a lot of stuff from Kingdoms to the grand campaign, like the factions and units etc

              Empire I also love, the AI was dodgy at times but the setting was great, more mods especially DarthMod made it a lot better, AUM unit pack, AI still has huge flaws though and is sometimes braindead stupid

              Despite my immense enjoyment of Empire I didn't go for Napoleon, for one because the AI was not improved and it didn't really attact my attention, especially given how the modders have been limited with Empire

              its only a matter of time before I buy the next total war game I just hope they really put the effort into the AI this time, campaign wise it was great in Empire, it just lacked in battles

                I think there is a napoleon demo that came out, honestly give it a ago. It is what Empire should have been.

                  Haven't really played any of the other total war games as much as I played Shogun back in the day. Lets hope they don't **** it up.

                    Two screenshots of STW2 and they said its improved AI. Of course they say that every new TW game.

                    Actually, three screenshots but you have to manually click on the third one in the screeenshot viewer.

                        Those shots were a good find! With the detail they are doing and if they really improved the AI again (hopefully much more) then this may be a really good game.

                            I want World War I Total Wars LOL

                            Bring out the stupid rugged tanks.

                              I dont think the TW tactics can go any further in to the future than empire really. I'm not sure exactly when it happened but at some point before WW2 they stopped having commanders telling the troops exactly what to do and instead just gave the troops a goal and let them solve it themselves. Kinda.....

                              I still want Medieval 3 Total War. I think the medieval era is the best by far.
