Koei Tecmo America and developer Kou Shibusawa have today released the latest entry in the popular strategy series, Romance of The Three Kingdoms, with the latest entry being Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV. For those who don’t live their lives by sundials, that’s 14.
To celebrate the launch, Koei Tecmo has released a new launch trailer which you can watch up above. Also, if you fancy trying the game for free before putting any money on it, you can download a demo of the game, but only on PC via Steam.
Throughout RTK14, players will have a wide arsenal of strategies to deploy at will, aiding them as they scramble for land and build up their domain. A multitude of different approaches are available in RTK14, covering Domestic, Diplomacy, Territory Development, and a large assortment of different ways to battle, with each playthrough of the game feeling like an all-new experience thanks to an enhanced AI system keeping them on their toes, not to mention, the selection of over 1,000 officers, each with their own traits and characteristics.
Those ready to jump into the action can purchase Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV starting today on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. Purchasing any version of the game within the first 2 weeks of launch will offer a free download for the additional scenarios ‘Battle of Yiling’ and ‘The Start of Change’.
In RTK14, players will experience the pivotal Three Kingdoms period of Ancient China, allowing them to make their mark on history as they set out to conquer China and unify the Three Kingdoms. The tale of the Three Kingdoms era is depicted through seven challenging scenarios, including the chaotic war that signalled the opening of the times (the Yellow Turban Rebellion), the fight for dominance between Yuan Shao and Cao Cao (the Battle of Guandu), and the beginning of Zhuge Liang’s northern campaign (Chu Shi Biao). These events will give gamers the opportunity to enjoy the rich stories from this time period through many event scenes, triggered through fulfilling certain conditions in battle. The latest entry in the series also adopts the popular ruler-based system from fan-favorite entries, RTK9 and RTK11, in order to help return classic gameplay to the series — meaning that all actions take place on a single map as players attempt to spread their strategies at will across the vast land of China.
