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.




We see that the 60 FPS average we aim for continues to be no problem across the board. Compared to the HD 6990, performance is very close. At the highest resolution it's dead even. At 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050, though, we see that the MARS II manages to come out ahead.
