Finally! Details have surfaced about Shogun 2: Total War's multiplayer via an overview from IGN.
Every achievement in Shogun 2, single player or otherwise, unlocks a piece of armour for your multiplayer general. Players who then go into the multiplayer to play dress-up will find themselves looking at a simplified paper map of Japan, with their general represented by a token. Hovering the cursor over all the map, they'll see that each conquered province unlocks a unit type, or some other bonus. It's only when you attack a province that the game goes off and finds you an opponent. This is Shogun 2's multiplayer renovation - trying to give the multiplayer battles a lite version of the single player's dramatic context. And that's not all.
For the full story click Total War: Shogun 2 - Big in Japan.

I have to say I didn't see this coming but I'm very pleasantly surprised. Sounds like multiplayer will finally get the sense of context that I've always found lacking in previous games. Plus, you'll be unlocking new items and skills and whatnot as you progress so it won't get old to soon I think.

what about you guys? Like it? Share your thoughts.
