According to the upcoming listings on Steam's database, Sega's 2011 strategy sequel Total War: Shogun 2 will be made available to download for free for the duration of this weekend. (It should be noted that, despite appearing in the database, Sega is yet to officially announce/confirm this offer).
The seventh release in the popular Total War series, Shogun 2 was seen as a pseudo-homecoming for the franchise - returning to the series' original timeline of 16th century Japan and streamlining gameplay, while redefining core elements to further create an immersive and addictive strategy experience. Shogun 2 received huge critical acclaim upon launch, and was eventually followed by standalone expansion Fall of the Samurai in 2012.
So if you're yet to experience this classic of the strategy genre, then be sure to grab yourself this great, time-sink of a title for the agreeable price of nothing. All you need do is jump on the Steam dashboard and register a copy to your library between April 27 and May 1, and it's yours. Not too shabby.
Total War: Shogun 2 is available now on PC.
