The March of War closed beta is slowly but surely kicking into gear! The lucky players that go in have everything at their disposal. The armies of The European Alliance, The Soviet Union and The United Republic, as well as the other powers that await you in the March of War universe. We revealed the traditional powers and their struggles, now it’s time to bring in the more exotic factions to the field of play. Without further ado, we bring you the dragon of the east – The Shogun Empire!
While the European Alliance is struggling in their own battles, unexpected threats begin to challenge their superiority. Spurred by a fervent belief in the ideal that their Emperor is destined to rule all lands under the sun, the Tokugawa shoguns abandoned their isolation and set about conquering neighboring countries. This shift culminated in the conquest of Korea and subjugation of Formosa. Even the Celestial empire of China came under ferocious attack from the unstoppable armies of the Shogunate.
In the span of just seventy years, the Shogun Empire had subjugated or conquered large swathes of territory in Asia. As the European Alliance was fighting for its survival against the Red tide of the Soviet Union, The Shogun Empire decided that now is the time to lay down the challenge to the colonial empires. In an unprecedented move of aggression, the Shogun Empire launched surprise attacks on the colonial possessions of the European nations and unleashed a vicious attack on Pearl Harbor – the naval base of the United Republic.
“The Emperor is our lord and master. He is the descendant of Amaterasu and the empire lives and dies by his divine wish. We would conquer the world so that all can know his wise rule. Even if the Emperor did not ask this, we would do it. So it is written, so shall it be.”
