Total War: Shogun 2 Assembly Kit launches

A suite of tools enables ground-up modification of the game, supports Steamworks

Posted on
The Creative Assembly has today launched the Total War: SHOGUN 2 Assembly Kit, a suite of tools that enables ground-up modification of the entire Total War: SHOGUN 2 product family.

This release also includes an update to TEd (the existing Battle Map Editor), which enables Steam Workshop integration and the ability to create scripted single-player historical battles. A sample historical battle, custom-built by The Creative Assembly, is available now on Steamworks to give new modders a convenient starting point.

“Total War has a dedicated mod scene with some truly heroic modders wrestling with a gigantic game and turning out some incredible work,”
said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director. ”Until now though there’s never been a useful set of tools that really opened up the possibilities in the game the way we knew they wanted. However, while we gear up for Rome II’s release next year, I’m happy to say that the team were able pull out all the stops and put together a kit we hope will really inspire them.”

Just like TEd, the Assembly Kit is completely free and available to download now from the Tools section of the Steam client. It comprises a range of powerful utilities such as TWeak, DaVE, The Unit Editor tool, BOB, and The Mod Manager.

The Total War: SHOGUN 2 Assembly Kit comes preloaded with example data, comprising buildings, units, maps and more, along with a number of 3D Studio Max plugins and scripts to help modders create custom models.
