Romance of The Three Kingdoms Franchise Makes Epic Return to PlayStation®4 and PC
New Strategy Game Dives Deep into China’s Lore to Rewrite the History of the Three Kingdoms
Burlingame, Calif. – August 1, 2019 – KOEI TECMO America is proud to announce the return of one of their most iconic franchises, as the historical strategy game Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV is currently in development for the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®.
The latest iteration of the classic tactical series is once again set during the fall of the Han Dynasty in ancient China; where battles take place in a boundary-free scramble for land. The game’s map showcases the territory captured and the thrill of expansion using a simplified color system – paying homage to the original Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV, released on PC back in 1985. Everything from war to diplomatic affairs will be geared toward managing and gathering land as players attempt to spread their strategies at will across the vast China map.
In addition, RTK14 will adopt the ruler-based system from RTK9 and RTK11 in order to help return classic gameplay to the series. This means that all actions – from domestic, to political, to battle – will now take place on a single map. Greater individuality among characters will also be on display; with officers from the Three Kingdoms, like Liu Bei and Guan Yu, asserting themselves at various situations in order to fully immerse players into the game’s rich history. But that’s not all, as a new Evolved Artificial Intelligence system is also being implemented to challenge players across repeated playthroughs. With organizations now determined through each ruler’s ideals, different game experiences are now possible via different rulers. Even within the same faction; different policies now bring with them different strategies for expansion, making the wise use of various officers a cornerstone of advanced gameplay.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV is scheduled for a western release in early 2020.
