As discovered last week, The Creative Assembly’s legendary Total War: SHOGUN 2 will be going free next week. The strategy title will be free to keep from April 27th to May 1st on Steam, with the developer hoping to encourage players to stay at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Everyone at Creative Assembly is now working from home, and we hope that this will help everyone with that stay home mission,” it stated recently.
But that’s not all. If you enjoy Total War: SHOGUN 2 enough, then you can pick up some other Total War games and their DLC on sale. This applies to historical games but ROME: Total War and Total War: Three Kingdoms with their DLC are not included. The Total War: Warhammer games are also exempt (which makes sense since it had a sale already).
Total War: SHOGUN 2 is arguably one of The Creative Assembly’s finest games yet. Taking place in 16th century Japan following the Onin, it sees numerous different factions and warlords vying for control. With eight different factions to choose, each with their units and specialties, there’s quite a lot to enjoy.
