It will hit PC exclusively next year with a smaller but 'more personal' scope. It's all about feudal Japan and rival warlords. It's in pre-alpha stage.
The unit roster has been cut back from hundreds to 30-40 and factions have been snipped as well, with eight different Japanese feudal warlords represented. Obviously the geographical location is Japan with the rest of the world left out.
Generals make a return to give a rousing speech before battles, and naval skirmishes will stay with vessels not dependant on the direction of wind but oars and they'll be laden with archers, not cannons. You'll get to see land too to help players stay orientated.
No that wasn't a pun.has managed a sneaky preview.
