Deep, Strategic Gameplay Unites with Nearly Endless Customisation in a Compelling, Historically-Accurate Tale of Political Instability, Large-Scale Conflict and Human Drama
Hertfordshire, 5th July 2016 – Developed in celebration of the series’ 30th anniversary and marking its reappearance in the West after an eight-year hiatus, KOEI TECMO Europe are proud to announce the triumphant return of its renowned strategy franchise with the launch of Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII. Offering a masterfully-created medley of strategic gameplay alongside a compelling and historically-accurate narrative, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII is available on the 8th July 2016 for the PlayStation4 computer entertainment system and digitally for Windows PC via Steam.
In Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII, players will experience a climactic storyline rich with Chinese history, and complete with detailed CG cutscenes that highlight the most heroic deeds of the strongest, wisest, and most powerful individuals of the Three Kingdoms Era. As players learn how to employ strategic gameplay options and harness advanced game mechanics, the tale of a collapsing dynasty and the emergence of power-hungry factions unfolds into a complex chessboard on which players can influence the fateful events leading to the unification of 2nd century China. Players can climb the proverbial leadership ladder as one of 700 historical characters during a turbulent era of political instability, large-scale conflict, and human drama.
Explore the myriad of experiences within the world of Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII, covering Civil Development, Diplomacy, Debates, Duels, open field battles, sieges, naval battles and more with gameplay differing depending on the situation at hand. Cities can be built and developed; alliances can be fostered or broken; armies can be mustered and deployed. Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII prides itself on offering a wide range of options for conflict resolution including a robust army composition selection, while special care has been taken to incorporate diplomacy and personal relationships, giving the player an extra incentive to build a stable and loyal network of friends and allies.
This comprehensive and exceptionally detailed strategy title features two compelling gameplay experiences: A campaign mode provides the freedom to choose a starting year and customise the board to the player’s liking, and Hero Mode closely follows historical events while teaching players all of the game’s mechanics. Players must decide for themselves whether they will follow a favourite historical figure to glory, or rise up and claim their place in history by uniting China under their own banner!
A new launch trailer was released today featuring the detailed CG cutscenes which players will experience throughout the game.
