Total War Shogun 2 – Gold Edition Announced!

Total War Shogun 2 Gold Edition

Including the award-winning SHOGUN 2 (2011), plus its thrilling expansions Rise of The Samurai (2011) and Fall of The Samurai (2012), Total War SHOGUN 2 GOLD Edition is a stunning collection that contains the entire saga from start to finish, and features hundreds of hours of award-winning strategy gaming.

North American Gold Edition

Bow Monk
Total War: SHOGUN 2
MASTER THE ART OF WAR in the darkest age of Japan, endless war leaves a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire.

Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Rise of the Samurai
Set 400 years before the dramatic civil war depicted in SHOGUN 2, the “Rise of The Samurai” campaign is based on the Gempei War, a conflict between six legendary clans of the Taira, Minamoto and Fujiwara families. It culminated in the first Shogunate, and the rise of the Samurai as the ruling class.

Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai
The standalone expansion to the award-winning Total War: SHOGUN 2 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.

The North American GOLD Edition includes all three titles, and is available at retailers from March 5th.

European & Australian Gold Edition

Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai

Including all three SHOGUN titles plus all released downloadable content (excluding the Blood Pack), in limited-production Wajima-nuri inspired packaging.

Total War’s weekend invasion of Steam picks up full steam power! Today, that means two more games on tap for the Daily Deal, and more Spiral Knights and Team Fortress 2 items to feature.

Total Recap

The short version of what’s going on: the Total War series is on sale all weekend, including the Total War Master Collection on sale for 75% off. Each game featured will also automatically grant players access to free items in both Valve’s incomparable Team Fortress 2 and SEGA and Three Ring’s own Spiral Knights.

Spiral Knights

From Heavenly wings and Stygian spikes to heavily armored cats and rabbits, the Knights of Haven have long strutted their stuff through the Clockworks in style. But sometimes, a Knight’s just got to be a Knight. Go old school with this crusader-inspired armored look for your headgear.

The Medieval War Helm is available with either Total War Battles: SHOGUN or Medieval II: Total War.

Featured: Team Fortress 2 Item

(editor’s note: please read the following in a psychotic Scottish accent for greatest accuracy)

Demoman’s Journal

There I was, holed up in the shelled and bullet-pocked remains of some backwater 2Fort. Blistered fingers from detonating remote sticky bombs were the least of my troubles. I’d been raining explosive death into every nook and cranny for a fortnight with nary dent made in the lot of ‘em when I realized, for once in my life, the answer wasn’t more explosives. I shook off this momentary yet severe existential crisis and realized that to blow them up, I first had to show them up. That’s when I reached for my King of Scotland Cape and Crown, available with any purchase of Total War Battles: SHOGUN or Medieval II: Total War. One size fits all Demomen.

Steam is Total War, Day II: Steam Workshop and Daily Deals

Total War’s weekend invasion of Steam continues! In addition to the Total War Master Collection on sale for 75% off, we have additional Team Fortress 2 and Spiral Knights items to highlight … and some awesome news for fans of Total War mods!

Total War: Shogun 2 on Steam Workshop

Total War: Shogun 2 Final Logo

One of the lasting features most-loved by our Total War community has always been the ability to mod the game and create scenarios, tweak historical accuracy, and create wholly alternate ways to play. Now, the ability to share and manage mods for Shogun 2 is available on Steam’s Workshop!

The Steam Workshop is a recently introduced feature allowing Steam community members to upload and organize mods for a wide variety of games — Total War’s long history of community support made it a natural addition and we are proud to have it there!

Daily Deals: Empire & Napoleon 75% Off

Right now, both Empire: Total War and Napoleon: Total War are 75% off!

Empire was a technological leap forward for a series that has always combined deep tactical gameplay with breathtaking technical depth, particularly on the real-time strategy battlefields. Napoleon helped refine these ideas and allows the player to put themselves into the Napoleonic Wars that tore Europe apart in the 19th century.

Keep checking back through the weekend, there’s more Daily Deals on the way.

Featured Spiral Knights Accessory: Tricorne Hat

tricorne

Whenever you buy any of the Total War games featured on Steam, you’ll get a corresponding accessory item for Spiral Knights. Today’s featured item — buy either Empire: Total War or Napoleon: Total War and get the ever so dashing tricorne hat!

This hat might as well be made of Blue Velvet because it is seriously suave. According to Wikipedia, the tricorne hat fell from its peak popularity around the year 1800, but that is bogus, because at no time is this thing not dashing. Just look at it!

Featured Team Fortress 2 Items: Distinguished Ascot / Sniper Shako

Total War - Team Fortress 2 Promo Items

Speaking of suave and distinguished, if you are one of the high society types of 18th or 19th century empire-making nations, why not also accentuate your favorite wild and crazy class-based shooter with a little haute couture neck warmer? Keep your physician in fashion and you spy supplied — in the latest style, so long as that style is this fancy neckwear. That is to say: if you buy (or happen to already own on Steam) Empire: Total War, you will receive the “Distinguished Ascot” or “Foppish Physician” accessory, usable for both the Spy and Medic classes.

Those who purchase (or already own) Napoleon: Total War, meanwhile, will arm their snipers with a jaunty stovepipe shako. If you like to put stylish things on your head and then shoot people who never even see you, this is absolutely an accessory you might want to consider acquiring.

Click here to see the items featured yesterday — they are available all weekend! Tune in each day until October 1st for additional deals.
