Samurai Taisen Closed Beta Announced

/ Nov 5th, 2012 No Comments

Kojima Motoshige from Samurai Taisen

Indonesian game developer PST Team has announced a closed beta for Samurai Taisen, the second game made since the company formed last year. The game, a massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game (MMORTS), will begin its closed beta phase on Nov. 30 with a final version of the game being released sometime in the first quarter of 2013. Registration to acquire keys to gain access to the beta are now being accepted at the time of this news release via the game’s official site.

Samurai Taisen will be set in Japan during the famous feudal period, a time of continuous warfare between states that lasted from the mid 15th century to the start of the 17th century. The game will spin history books on their heads with an action packed retelling of the period and its events. Famous figures such as Oda Nobunaga will appear and play integral roles. However, in keeping with the revisionist nature of the game many figures will have their genders reversed such as Yukimura Sanada and Kenshin Uesugi, who will be portrayed as women.

[adsense250itp]Gamers will join the battle for Japan’s future by assuming control of Ji-samurais, lords who owned and controlled small rural domains in feudal Japan. Players will command troops and develop them to become stronger while also tending to their lands, engaging in political intrigue, making new allies, encountering new foes and fighting against other players to reach the game’s ultimate goal of becoming the best shogun of Japan. PST Team says the game will “require its players to do a proper planning, good judgement, and tactics in order to gain upper hand in defeating the enemies, just like in any other MMORTS.”

The game will also feature extensive use of a visual novel format, a popular medium of interactive storytelling in Japan. It will be featured primarily in a story mode where players are introduced to an ongoing story as they work towards the end goal of becoming shogun. The mode is completely optional though so players wanting to focus on the multiplayer strategy aspect of the game can do so.

Best of all, Samurai Taisen is browser based. No downloads will be required in order to play. If you have an internet browser and a good computer then you are all set to get your samurai on.

PST Team is promising that this will be “a different kind of strategy game.” This is quite a big claim to make and it remains to be seen if this proves true. Players who want to help contribute to ensuring a high quality final version are encouraged to register for the closed beta.
