Total War: Shogun 2, arming fans with the weaponry it needs to modify the strategy game. Included in the release is an update to the existing Battle Map Editor, which enables Steam Workshop integration.
With the Assembly Kit – freely available to download from the Tools section of Steam for Shogun 2 owners – players can edit any database values in the game, including game logic, unit values and more as well as the ability to create, edit and render in-game assets. Complete details can be found after the break.
To help kickstart content (which includes the ability to script single-player battles) The Creative Assembly released a "sample historical battle" on Shogun 2's Steam Workshop page to give modders a "convenient starting point."
To celebrate its release, the Total War franchise will be on sale through October 1, with rotating deals each day on Steam.
