Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Onin 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.




Firing up Shogun 2, we can see that like Metro 2033 the performance at 3600 x 1920 is below that 60 FPS average again. While Shogun 2 doesn't look like the most intensive game, its large open world and high unit detail does indeed make it very intensive and amongst large battles a lot of load is placed on the video card setup.
