For those who are unaware of the story so far, 'Total War: Shogun 2 Master The Art Of War' tells the story about the darkest age of Japan where endless war has left a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan, and the country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire.
'Total War: Shogun 2 - Rise of the Samurai,' on the other hand, is set 400 years before the great civil war depicted in 'Shogun 2. The 'Rise of The Samurai' campaign is based on the Gempei War, which is a conflict between six legendary clans of the Taira, Minamoto and Fujiwara families.
Lastly in the pack, 'Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai' tells the story about the conflict between the Imperial throne and the last Shogunate in 19th century Japan, 400 years after the events of the original game. It is set during the events leading up to and including the Meiji Restoration. This was a time when the threat of Western powers forced Japan's government to modernize and ultimately bring an end to its traditional Samurai-based feudal system.
