In Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension players can experience all aspects of the life of a Warring States officer. For the first time in the series, they can advance from a Retainer to a Daimyō, a feudal lord, with Officer Play. This mode opens a world of possibilities: rise through the ranks with aid from other clans, through conquering the land, by following orders and advancing in status, or by overthrowing superior lords!

Players will be able to exploit the entire breadth of strategic options available with the introduction of two new types of warfare, Siege and Naval battles. Full-scale Siege battles create a realistic simulation that allows blockades to be deployed as a defense mechanism, as well as the use of tunnels and cannons, to gain the strategic advantage over their opponent and overtake the enemy stronghold. While Naval battles provide the option to carry out skirmishes and strategic blockades on vast bodies of water such oceans, to overcome the enemy from every angle.

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence Ascension will release 28th October 2016 for PC and PS4.
