Total War: Shogun 2, the acclaimed Windows PC historical real time strategy sequel from developer The Creative Assembly and publisher Sega, has finally been released for OS X, letting Mac PC owners check out the epic battles, set in 16th century Japan, for themselves.

The OS X port, which was developed and published by Feral Interactive, contains both the original game as well as all of the DLC packs that were released for the Windows version, including the Rise of the Samurai Campaign stand alone campaign expansion. Here's a quick list of the game's features:

  • Command samurai, ninja and warrior monks in spectacular real-time battles across snowcapped mountains, around fortified hilltop citadels and through fields garlanded with cherry blossom.
  • Assert your dominance over a turn-based campaign map by developing infrastructure, researching new technologies and using clever diplomacy and covert agents to bend rival clans to your will.
  • Act wisely in your negotiations, display mercy on the battlefield and follow the ancient ways of Bushido and Chi to earn honour, strengthen your generals' bonds of loyalty and improve your status with other clans.
  • Refine your strategy with the help of an in-game encyclopaedia containing both gameplay information and historical detail, then execute it using an intuitive and beautiful interface inspired by Japanese woodcut prints.

If you are a Mac gamer, are you happy that Total War: Shogun 2 is now available?

Multiplayer is apparently not available, and furthermore it is unclear if modding the game with something like Darthmod's works would be possible. Also it should be mentioned that the game is available on Steam for mac as well - where if you frequently use bootcamp or happen to own a PC you can get both products for the same price.
