The best Shogun 2 clan pack to date

Total War: Shogun 2 - Otomo clan pack DLC is in my opinion no doubt the best clan pack made for this game. Otomo was one of the major clans in the lands of Kyoshu and they were the first to make contact with the Europeans. They were regularly trading with the Portuguese and eventually converting to the Christian faith.

The Otomo have 4 new unique land units and one new naval unit. They can also build new buildings such as Leased land, Hospital, Jesuit Seminary, Jesuit College and more.

Their traits are also something special - they are described as Master Gunners and can recruit cheaper gunpowder units and missionaries that spread Christianity. They also get a conversion bonus to clan religion and faster import of Matchlock Ashigaru units.

Cool new faction

A new shogun 2 faction, finally. Now you start with a christian clan, which is of course interesting. Your clan starts off with 2 provinces and the ability to recruit Matchlock Ashigaru units. They also have the opportunity to recruit several clan exclusive units like Portugese Tercos.

This DLC adds a lot of fun, but it may be a little expensive (since you probably only play this faction for one campaign).

Now this right here, along with the Ikko Ikki, is how factions in Shogun 2 should have been handled to begin with. A bit different playsyle, unique units, unique buildings; aka some faction identity. Just the stuff you need for your campaigns to break out of monotonity.

Doesn't matter if you're a fan who's still playing Shogun 2 or someone who is just getting into it, you won't go wrong with getting this pack.

Finally Total War: Shogun 2 gets a new faction, this time the Japanese Otomo clan will join forces with Porturgal, giving them a lot of firepower and new economic options to excel over the other factions.

The Otomo Clan now has the Portugese Tercos which is one of the most dangerous units in ranged combat and the Matchlock Samurai, which can combine his samurai skills with a light rifle if the enemy is too far, also for Naval Combat the DLC includes the Matchlock Kobaya, I think this ship fast but not enough powerful like others

This DLC includes great and powerful units for the game and if you want to expand Shogun 2, It is worth it.
