Creative Assembly did a bit of a rebranding today, as Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai which was a standalone expansion for Total War: Shogun 2 has now become Total War Saga: FALL OF THE SAMURAI. Originally released in 2012, we were given a Linux port from Feral Interactive back in 2017.

Writing about the news on the official Total War blog post, Creative Assembly mentioned that along with the title adjustment that existing owners will get every DLC (excluding the blood pack) as a free gift which is pretty darn nice of them.

So why the changing name? Well, according to Creative Assembly, Fall of the Samsurai "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."—okay then.

To celebrate, they've put it on a 75% discount on Steam. Otherwise it's also on Humble Store and Feral Store.

In other related Total War news, looks like another one is on the way named Total War Saga: Troy, as noted in a recent trademark filed in July. Will be interesting to see if Feral Interactive will be working on a port again.

I only have the base game so obviously I don't have anything from this one. But Steam will allow me to write a review of it. Weird.
