Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Ōnin War. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the role of one of these warlords, with the goal of dominating other factions and claiming his rule over Japan. The standard edition of the game will feature a total of eight factions (plus a ninth faction for the tutorial), each with a unique starting position and different political and military strengths.
All settings are pushed to ultra with hardware shadows and SSAO enabled.
Shogun 2 runs well on AMD graphics hardware and we can see that the HD6950 Flex manages to match the GTX580 AMP2 edition with this specific engine. Not a common occurrence.
