The Dragon War Battle Pack consists of six consecutively-played legendary battles from the Boshin War, depicting the campaign of Saigo Takamori. Previously only available in the “Fall of the Samurai” expansion, they can now be accessed in the original Total War: SHOGUN 2.

It is 1868, and the Tokugawa Shogunate has ruled Japan for over 250 years. Now, the dynasty’s grip is failing as revolutionary ideas and technologies from the west flood the country. The Shogun’s enemies, and even the Emperor, look to the future. Feudal clans align with the embattled Tokugawa Shogunate, or a growing Imperial movement to restore the Emperor to his traditional role as the ruler of Japan. Civil war is coming.

Command the féted warrior Saigo Takamori and his Imperial army. Wield the ferocious weapons of the late 1800s as you fight against the armies of the Tokugawa Shogunate, win Japan for the Emperor, and relive the War of the Year of the Dragon.

Those that remain loyal to the Shogunate’s cause have regrouped on Ezo island to the north. However, the Imperial Navy has taken delivery of a state-of-the-art ironclad warship, the Kotetsu, which forms the spearhead of an assault on Ezo. The breakaway Ezo Republic launches a naval assault in an attempt to steal the battleship.Hakodate

With the raid at Miyako Bay thwarted, the Emperor’s forces go on the offensive one last time, landing an army on the shores of the last Ezo stronghold, Hakodate. The Imperial army is divided, and Takamori must unite his forces in the face of strong opposition before mounting one final push to capture the last holdout, a star fort, Goryokaku.
