Did not have the chance to purchase the Limited Edition for Shogun 2? Wanted more blood and violence in your Shogun 2 real-time battles? Been looking forwards to a new patch that will fix existing bugs and attempt to better balance multiplayer? Well today is your lucky day as the Imperial Emperor of Japan has declared today a day for a massive Shogun 2 update.

For those who own the standard edition of Shogun 2 the Hattori clan are now available as a DLC Clan pack on Steam, so no longer will your thirst to play as the Hattori go unsatisfied. As a side note, remember all them bonuses Limited Edition buyers got with the Hattori? Those are present in this DLC pack as well, so if you like new avatar armour or historical battles then rejoice. So if your interested in playing as the Hattori then head this way to the Steam Store page.

Have thirst to spill blood for the Blood Gods and take skulls for the Skull Throne? Then this second DLC offering for Shogun 2 may well interest you. The Blood Pack DLC adds decapitations, blood spatter, blood squirting and other such features to improve upon your bloody gritty graphical experiences. If you are interested in the Blood Pack DLC then head this way to the Steam Store page.

Patch Notes, which can also be found in Steam's News section, will be listed in the comments section so as to avoid taking up the entirety of Shogun 2 Heaven's news feed.

Patch Notes:
Rise of the Samurai
- Fixed forum issue enabling players to exceed the maximum veteran slot limit
- Fixed bug where Chosokabe Daikyu Samurai could be recruited
- Fixed bug where Realism mode wasn’t being saved
- Fixed bug where players had to add an extra unit to ready up after a classic MP battle
- Fixed bug where replay battle type didn’t update correctly when switching between types
- Fixed issue with Invite Friends and Weather tickboxes
- Fixed bug where duplicate experienced and veteran units displayed incorrect cost
- State Academy entry in Encylopaedia now displays correctly
- Fixed bug where remaining funds did not update when player switches sides in a siege battle
- Fixed crash bug when starting a 1v3 on a 2v2 map
- Fixed bug where grouped units could not be given orders after rallying from a rout
- Fixed issue where players with a full unit roster could still click ‘add to army’
- Fixed bug where the cutscene after the Nagashino historical battle caused a lockup
- Fixed bug where clearing then loading an army containing Hero units prevented Hero units from appearing as selectable units on the unit selection group

- Infantry officer: retainer’s effect is +2 instead of +1
- Yari master: Reduce spear defence from 3 to 2
- Unabalanced spears: reduced effect from -3 to -2 (the counter to yari master)
- Stricken unholy forge: tweaked to affect all monk units
- World weary: morale penalty removed
- European gun smith: Tweaked to affect reload
- Way of the Ikko-Ikki: +10% now affects monks and ashigaru, with +2 melee defence rather than +3
- Rennyo’s teachings: Morale boost now +1 rather than +2 and +3 melee defence rather than +4

Unit categories
- Spear and naginata units are now distinct so that spear retainers do not benefit naginata units. This affects a number of overpowered army/retainer combinations to reduce their effectiveness.

- Samurai Archers reduced in cost by 50 koku
- Great Guard cap raised to 2
- Matchlocks reduced in cost as they are now less effective with previous friendly fire fixes
- Naginata Warrior Monk Cavalry capped to 3 max to reduce potency

Good to see a chance for people with the normal edition to get the hattori as well.

As to the Blood Pack, I can't say I saw that coming. I'm not a fan, I think the battles look just fine without the blood and gore and it'll probably put a damper on performane.

I guess this is what a lot of people want. I am not bothered since I got the limited edition, but it is nice for those unlucky people not to have it, to get the full game

At first I liked the idea of blood, but it would probably make mine go even slower and I'd end up taking it off anyway.

I haven't noticed that much of a stability or FPS hit with the Blood DLC enabled, but I do have a pretty strong rig setup as far as Shogun 2 is concerned. But as usual individual results will probably vary, such is the nature of PC gaming.
