Shogun 2’s Fall of the Samurai expansion is now a Total War Saga game

Fall of the Samurai was initially released as an expansion for Total War: Shogun 2, available as both a DLC pack and a standalone release. As a standalone title, it fits right in with developer Creative Assembly’s current Total War Saga series, and as such it’s getting rebranded under that new moniker.

It’s now officially A Total War Saga: Fall of the Samurai. If you already own the game, you’re getting a special gift in the form of all its DLC – except the blood pack – for free. If you don’t have it yet, it’s currently 75% off on Steam, and you can also pick up the previous Total War Saga, Thrones of Britannia, at a 66% discount.

So why do we have a rebrand? In the announcement, Creative Assembly says that 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.”
