While Total War: Shogun 2 does an excellent job of depicting the titanic clash between two warring factions, it's always been missing a little something to make the experience complete: Majestic arcs of spurting crimson lifeblood, and the odd severed head. All this and more can be yours for $US1.59.
Available now on Steam and other fine digital download sites, the Blood Pack for Shogun 2 takes a very Seven Samurai approach to war gore, painting the battlefield red and littering it with the body parts of the defeated. There's so much blood here that you'll wonder what those speaks of gold are on your foe's shiny red armour.
The gore comes at a cost, however, and that cost is $US1.59, as previously stated. The pack also increases the rating of the game from Teen to Mature, so you'll need to be 18 or over to buy it, or just hang out outside of Steam waiting for a hip grownup to wander by.
Also available today is the Hattori Clan DLC pack, putting players in control of the most powerful group of ninja to ever assassinate and bribe their way across a battlefield. The pack comes complete with an extra historical battle scenario, additional armour, and a hot XP injection for your Avatar, all for the low price of $US4.99.
You know what goes great with ninja? Fountains of blood.
