Creative Assembly has today announced details on the new and improved Total War: Shogun 2 Assembly Kit, which will include Steam Workshop integration and updated modding tools. The added integration to Steam will allow a more diverse mod library, and allow users to leave comments and discussions on each separate mod.
“Total War has a dedicated mod scene with some truly heroic modders wrestling with a gigantic game and turning out some incredible work,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director. ”Until now though there’s never been a useful set of tools that really opened up the possibilities in the game the way we knew they wanted. However, while we gear up for Rome II’s release next year, I’m happy to say that the team were able pull out all the stops and put together a kit we hope will really inspire them.”
Creative Assembly has also noted that the existing modding tool, TEd, will be updated as well with Steam Workshop integration and the ability to create scripted single-player historical battles.
