Total War: Shogun 2 is the next title up on the list of the current game giveaway trend. Make sure to grab a copy before May 1.
Sega is offering its strategy video game title Total War: Shogun 2 for two reasons — to encourage the public to stay at home and to help ease everyone’s isolation with entertainment.
On its website, the developer behind Total War, Creative Assembly, expressed,
The past few weeks have presented unimaginable challenges for many of us, but the remarkable collective effort being made by the global community to overcome this moment of adversity has been truly inspirational. Everyone at Creative Assembly is now working from home, and we hope that this will help everyone with that stay home mission – #StayHomeSaveLives.
Free-to-keep giveaway details
The giveaway can be redeemed on Steam this Monday, April 27, at 18:00 BST. It’ll be up for grabs only until May 1 at 18:00 BST as well.
On Monday will also kickstart the Total War Sale that will last until May 4. The inclusion of what’s on sale is a bit vague.
Sega only identifies “selected historical Total War games and DLC” as sale inclusion, but those items will be offered up to 75% off.
For those who will not be able to catch free-to-keep giveaway on May 1, Sega is set to offer Total War: Shogun 2 on sale until May 4 as well.
Total War: Shogun 2 is a well-received game since its release in 2011. In fact, the game is a BAFTA Games Award for Strategy winner in 2012.
It’s a difficult time right now, so to help stave off boredom while you’re stuck at home, we’re giving away SHOGUN 2 for you to keep forever! #StayHomeSaveLives

Sega joins the stay at home campaign
Since the start of the global coronavirus pandemic, almost all video game companies are pitching in their contribution to help fight the outbreak. Many have been creative in raising funds for either to help health workers fighting COVID-19 or to those gravely affected by the pandemic.
If there’s one thing that the coronavirus has taught the whole world, aside from maintaining proper handwash cleaning, is that people will come together despite human diversity just to help others when direly needed.
With that said, the video game industry has been showing its generosity by offering their great game titles for free to encourage or chipping off a chunk from their game prices for charity-sake.
2K games partnered with Humble Bundle for “2K’s Humble Game Together Bundle,” a charity game bundle offer including NBA 2K2020, Borderlands collection, and many others for a very cheap deal.
Meanwhile, Games Done Quick just finished its latest marathon event raising over $400,000 for health workers.
This time, Sega joins in on the cause.
