Burlingame, Calif. – August 24, 2020 – KOEI TECMO America and famed developer Kou Shibusawa are excited to announce Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack, the latest addition to their historic simulation franchise that has been a staple in strategy gaming for 35 years. The expansion pack is scheduled to release in Early 2021 in North America on the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®, while also making its series debut as the first ruler-based Romance of The Three Kingdoms game on Nintendo Switch™.
The Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack is loaded with new possibilities, including trade with great Eurasian empires — including Rome and India — allowing for even broader strategies to unfold on a path to unify China. But that’s not all, as the expansion pack also introduces cities of foreign forces onto the map. Apart from conflicts in the central area, armies will now need to deal with intensified border clashes, upping the stakes in every skirmish.
In addition, new geographical advantages will be assigned to each province, so the strategies gamers will be able to choose from will vary dramatically depending on which provinces are conquered. For example: Conquering Qing Province expands the area you conquer, while conquering Yo Province allows you to open up trade with the nomadic tribe of the region, making the order of which province you conquer first now vitally important.
New officer characteristics and special tactics have also been added, along with new buildings for specific topography, a calendar that enables you to reflect on previous activities in the game, and an all-new campaign entitled “War Chronicles Mode.”
