Developed by Creative Assembly and originally released for the PC in 2011, Total War: Shogun 2 is a strategy game that drops players into 16th century Japan, a time known as the "Warring States" period. Players will control one of nine clans, all of which seek to conquer their contemporaries and unite Japan under a single flag. Mass combat plays out in real-time, but those who prefer more subtle methods can avoid direct conflict by dispatching assassins or focusing on diplomatic resolutions.
Though the Mac incarnation of Total War: Shogun 2 arrives long after its PC counterpart, it will include all of the DLC released for the prior game for free. No price point or specific release date has yet been established for Total War: Shogun 2 on OS X, though Feral Interactive claims these details will be coming soon.
