    Cool shogun 2 retainers

    So, as many of you probably know, in shogun 2 multiplayer a player will be able to take "retainers" along with his army. These effect the battles you play. They are like cards you can collect, each with a specific ability, that can give you an advantage over the enemy. For example the Bad Omen retainer, which will effect the enemy troops morale in a negative way.

    Will these also be available in the singleplayer campaign?

    They'll probably be gained by your generals like in previous TW games .

    Welcome to the forums cocolunie.
    Most likely like this.. "retainers" ancillary and retinue have been present in the series for a very long time and as such will most likely be present in the single player campaign as they always have been and make a debut in the online as it has been stated

    For me if its for weaks and kids.
    CA is taking off the player ability and effort to gain battles .
    I call this merchandise nothing else,im already imagining MPB´s with always the same rule, no retainers = no nOObs.

    Common what is this becaming ! Pokemon cards ?!?!

    I believe these retainers will bring a new, fun and tactical aspect to multiplayer gameplay.
    If you don't like the option then don't use it, simple as that.
    But at least it brings fun innovation to players who would like too use these and explore new multiplayer gameplay.

    If the retainers are also present in the campaign i would hope that they can be transfered between the generals.. i hated in medieval2 that you could not switch them between your family members/generals
