    Shogun Expansion Gold [9:56 AM EDT (Frans) June 29, 2001] - Post a Comment
    As noted on the Shogun: Total War Community Site, the Shogun: The Mongol Invasion expansion for the 3D RTS by Creative Assembly "has now passed CQC and has entered production," and both the add-on and the Shogun: Total War Warlord Edition are on track for a July 20 release.

    Great news,but like DP I don't understand why it will take till July 20th to produce the CD's?Are they being hand carved by master samurai artisans with the appropriate chanting of the sutra's and offerings to Buddha?

    guys,

    the notice does NOT mean that it has gone gold. sorry, but you need to read it again. it also makes no mention of some of the other things being released. i dont think they're done yet. going gold means, i think, that EVERYTHING has left the developer and gone to the distributor. this is NOT what they said.

    Going Gold means that the final gold cds are finished and ready to be replicated. Of course final gold cd go through a final check themselves.

    Sounds like just more of the same burlesque - these guys would make great strippers .

    "Ofcourse"

    Now that MI is gold, any chance our illustrious beta testers could be unmuzzled?

    /me does a back-flip into a container of margarine!

    P.S. Now why don't you believe it Kraellin? What did EA ever do to you...? ...But seriously folks; www.gonegold.com says that the x-pack "going gold" was confirmed by EA-HQ also; so we are looking good!

    "has entered production" sounds to me like past the gold stage and being manufactured to me??

    I think they will probably release them at the same time that they release the expansion. Why would we need a patch to match them before them.
