KOEI TECMO UNVEILS PRE-ORDER DLC BONUS CONTENT FOR
NOBUNAGA’S AMBITION: SPHERE OF INFLUENCE
BURLINGAME, Calif. – June 2, 2015 – KOEI TECMO America today announced pre-order bonus content for upcoming strategy/historical simulation title Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence. The game will be available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, digitally for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and for PC via Steam® on September 1, 2015.
Specifically, KOEI TECMO America is offering two new game scenarios to fans who pre-order the title. The first, available exclusively through GameStop, is called ‘Rise of the God of War’ and tells the tale of Kagetora Nagao, fourth son of Tamekage Nagao, who replaces his weak brother as head of the Nagao clan. When the liege lords of his clan are unwilling to recognize such a young and inexperienced youth he must force them into submission and prove his superiority as a commander. This is the origin story of Kenshin, the general who became known in Japan as the ‘God of War.’
The second scenario, available for those who pre-order from Amazon and Best Buy, is called ‘Oda - Tokugawa Alliance’ and follows the stories of two young men, Takechiyo Matsudaira and Kipposhi, who grow up to be two of the most significant figures of their time, Ieyasu Tokugawa and Nobunaga Oda. This scenario explores their time growing up together and sheds some light behind the forging of their strong alliance and friendship.
KOEI TECMO America has also released a first trailer for the game that highlights the realistic, dynamic, and dramatic nature of this extremely intricate, deep, and meticulous strategy game.
Set against a backdrop of a fragmented nation, players take the mantle of a Daimyo, a feudal lord of the Sengoku era (15th-16th century Japan), and fight for the great ideal of uniting the war-ridden country under one rule, and become Shogun. Providing the choice to play as either a historical personality or a uniquely created character, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence is both a full-scale historical simulation and a bona fide strategy title, and offers an extremely wide pallet of choices for the player to shape the world as they please.

@KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (7 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (8 Hours ago)
The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (8 Hours ago)
And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (8 Hours ago)
Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (8 Hours ago)
No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (8 Hours ago)
I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (8 Hours ago)
