Fall of the Samurai rejoint Total War Saga

La série Total War Saga s’enrichit cette semaine d’un nouveau titre, qui n’en est pas vraiment un. En effet, l’extension La Fin des Samouraïs de Total War – Shogun II a en quelque sorte changé de camp, basculant de celui du simple épisode militaire à celui d’une saga épique à part entière. Ce qui n’est pas forcément plus mal pour redonner à ce moment dramatique de l’Histoire plus d’écho ludique.

Au passage sachez aussi que selon une rumeur persistante le prochain jeu de la série Total War Saga serait sur le thème de la guerre de Troie. Si c’est bien le cas, il devrait bientôt être annoncé officiellement.

What is a Total War Saga title?

Total War Saga titles take the grand strategy and real-time battles of a core Total War game and channel them into an intense flashpoint of history, letting you experience and ultimately determine the outcome of pivotal moments in history when the future of entire nations hung in the balance.

Having all the depth, features, and mechanics of a major era Total War game, Total War Saga titles offer a comparable number of factions, heroes, and settlements to their core counterparts as well as hundreds of hours of gameplay potential.

Total War Saga titles are our chance to think differently in our designs, often leading to new ideas, mechanics, and perspectives that go on to influence future era titles.

FALL OF THE SAMURAI has been used as a goalpost to inform the development of subsequent Saga titles, and so it only seems right to give the game its own Saga treatment.

About A Total War Saga: FALL OF THE SAMURAI

A Total War Saga: FALL OF THE SAMURAI depicts the dramatic clash of traditional Samurai culture with the explosive power of modern weaponry, and now includes all DLC faction packs.

Set 400 years after the events of Total War: SHOGUN 2, you must guide ancient Japan into the modern age as the arrival of America, Britain and France incites a ferocious civil war which will decide the future of a nation.

Based on the backdrop of the Boshin War period, the new campaign starts in 1864, a time of growing resentment against Western colonial power and influence. As Japan begins to modernise and industrialise, the inevitable social and economic changes lead to increasingly militant nationalism and antipathy towards the Shogunate.

Play as a clan supporting the Imperial throne (Choshu, Satsuma, Tosa), or the last Shogunate (Aizu, Nagaoka, Jozai) in a sandbox campaign map reflecting the time period of 19th century Japan.

The American, British and French nations play an important part in the story of the Boshin war, and your relations with these foreign powers will be integral to unit recruitment and to advancing your technology trees.

The DLC factions

The Saga faction – The Modernisers

Centuries of trade with outsiders has given the people of Saga an understanding of foreign and modern ways, allowing them to adopt new military technology quickly.

The Saga clan can rely on a few advantages in the coming struggle: they have Western connections and trade that is far ahead of any other domain. In turn, this learning allows them to be artillery experts, and have good shipbuilding and industrial facilities. The modern world has much to offer to those who would embrace it.

The Obama faction – The Overseers

The Sakai clan, the rulers of Obama, are firm supporters of the Shogunate. The original Sakai lord of the domain, Sakai Tadakatsu, was one of the roju, or elders, under Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first Shogun.

Because of their long experience of government and administration, they are experts at managing the population of their lands. They receive a taxation bonus and are highly efficient at repression. They also spend money wisely, and they pay less upkeep for land units. All their garrison troops are also of high quality.

The Tsu faction – The Betrayers

Rising from humble roots, the people of Tsu are wise, artful and astute strategists. Their use of Ninja is unsurpassed on the battlefield and in covert operations.

Historically, the Tsu chose to play a “long game”, apparently supporting the Shogunate until the very last moment. Their central position on the mainland between Edo and Kyoto allowed them enviable flexibility and options in their loyalties. Such flexibility goes some way to explain why they have such excellent shinobi at their command.

The Sendai faction – The Negotiators

Fiercely loyal to the incumbent Tokugawa Shogunate, the noble people of Sendai endured the ages of turmoil to emerge as respected tacticians and sublime diplomats.

They Sendai clan have survived centuries of turmoil through political guile, implacable enemies, and fierce warriors. In battle, Sendai armies have longer when attacking, and need to defend for less time, making victory less of a race to achieve. The Sendai also have a bonus to all diplomatic efforts and are tolerant towards people with different allegiance.

  1. Une petite voix médisante me susurre que c’est encore une occasion perdue d’aborder un thème novateur pour cette licence, plutôt que de “jouer la facilité” en revenant vers Shogun et ses assets déjà disponibles. En même temps, au vu de la promotion actuelle et du ticket d’accès, ce sera au pire une agréable invitation à acquérir le “jeu de base” (bien qu’il ne soit pas nécessaire pour y jouer). L’un dans l’autre c’est bien vu de la part de C.A.
