Hi all,

Just to let you know that Rise of the Samurai is now LIVE on Steam, as well as the huge accompanying free patch.

If you haven't picked the new campaign up yet, you can do so right here:

You don't need to get the DLC in order to receive the free patch, which includes new castle types for Shogun 2, a wealth of improvements and tweaks and 11 new multiplayer and skirmish maps.

You can find out more about Rise of the Samurai right here.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it.

    Thanks Craig!! I can't wait to get home and start the new DLC campaign; after I finish downloading the patch of course;)

    Thunder & Death are but a mere understatement...a footnote really...

    My Clanmate from Spain lost most of his veteran abilitys for his veterans. Clantokens are lost.

    Ok we had patch notes. But why in patchnotes it wasnt mentioned what happen?

    But Yari master gets +1 and Yagu Sword gets -1 so yari Samurai can match with Katanasamurai or what?

    The melee Monks Stats are like release again... with far better retainers available. Why nerf monks first, then buff them now, and the opposing army core is now nerfed?
    We see... what all comes to daylight.

    I dont buy DLC at this point, Coop and Versus dont work well, people of my clan told me.

    And some people can still use 2 Great Guards, 10 Loanswords and such... so much trouble shooting underway i guess.
    You want successfully arty camp in deploy zone? Go ahead and get your win.

    Too tired and too short on time to play it right now, but be sure I will dive in there tommorow.

    Great work as always guys! (both the DLC and, especially, the massive patch)
