In the “Rise of the Samurai” campaign, players take on a brand new and independent campaign for Total War: Shogun 2 set in 12th century Japan. Set 400 years before the dramatic civil war depicted in Total War: Shogun 2, the “Rise of The Samurai” campaign is based on the Gempei War, a conflict between six legendary clans of the Taira, Minamoto and Fujiwara families. It culminated in the first Shogunate, and the rise of the Samurai as the ruling class.
