Shogun 2 to appear at Edinburgh festival

Public screening of Total War sequel.

A public demo of strategy sequel Shogun 2 will be the highlight of a Total War session at Edinburgh Interactive 2010.

The free screening takes place on Thursday 26th August at the Filmhouse cinema. Mike Simpson of developer The Creative Assembly will take the audience through the history and evolution of the much-loved historical strategy series, which is ten years old this year, before showing its next entry.

Tickets will be available soon from the the Edinburgh Interactive website.

Shogun 2, a sequel to the very first Total War game, will be released on PC in 2011. It introduces naval combat and hero units while reducing the scale to spin a more detailed, personal tale of civil war in feudal Japan.
