The way of the warrior
Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun is releasing today on PC!
Epsom, UK – May 19, 2016
“Without destruction there is no creation… there is no change.”- Oda Nobunaga
From the 15th until the early 17th century, Japan’s Shogunate was heavily contested by powerful lords from around the country. The rebellious local Daimyo had grown stronger and began to question and challenge the leadership of the nation. This period, called Sengoku Jidai or the Warring States Period, would become one of the most renowned civil wars of human history.
Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun is developed in collaboration between Richard Bodley Scott, the mastermind behind Field of Glory and Pike & Shot, and Jayson Ng an active member of the community. The game expands P&S’s epic turn-based battles with some tactical enhancements and a new and colourful unit mix, embellished with a perfectly chosen art style.
Battlefield generals are a major game changer and serve a hero role which players have to learn how to master. Units under the influence of their leaders will receive benefits, being less likely to break, and likely to inflict higher damage. The loss of an inspirational general can cause an entire frontline to crumble.
Sengoku Jidai features fourteen historical battles on Japanese and Korean soil, three historical campaigns, one sandbox campaign, and a skirmish mode that generates random encounters between dozens of army lists from Japan, Korea, China, Manchuria and Mongolia.
And for those who want more, the Collector’s Edition is also available adding 2 exclusive campaigns, 4 extra army lists and 3 e-books including the Field of Glory: Renaissance rulebook which contains all the information you need to play your first epic battle.
A special 10% launch discount is available for a limited time period. We are going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who bought a copy from the Matrix Games or Slitherine store, once the game is available on this digital platform!
Also tonight, on May 19, 20.00 (CEST), we are going to give players a sneakpeek of the game on the official Twitch channel of the Slitherine Group!
