Shogun 2 to receive new unit pack: includes Hanzo's Shadows and Tetsubo Warriors

Shogun 2 will receive a new elite unit pack next week, tweets Creative Assembly. The Saints and Heroes Elite Unit Pack will contain nine new legendary warrior units, "the masters of their combat disciplines, standing head-and-shoulders above their rank-and-file brothers". Good, it's about time those rank-and-file chumps were taken down a peg or two.

A few more details on Shogun 2's seventh such DLC pack can be found on the Total War forum, where some of the nine new units are described thusly:

  • Tadakatsu's Tetsubo Warriors - batter the enemy into submission with war-clubs 
  • A new elite spear unit - flank and strike with these spear-wielding cavalrymen 
  • Hanzo's Shadows - an elite ninja unit, unparalleled in the use of stealth and trained to scale castle walls at lightning speed 

Those castle infiltrating Hanzo units sound exciting. It's wonderful to be reminded that ninjas were real things, once, and not just something we made up for a few decent films. The pack will be available in both single and multiplayer next week.
