Lead Your Allies to Victory on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam

Hertfordshire, 28th February 2020 – Today,KOEI TECMO Europe and famed developer Kou Shibusawa are proud to launch the latest entry in their renowned strategy franchise Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV (RTK14) on the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®.

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-favourite 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.

Throughout the experience, 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 from 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’. Those purchasing on PC via Steam within the first week of launch will receive a 10% discount on their purchase!

A demo is also available for players to enjoy until the 12th March 2020 on PC (via Steam), allowing them to play as either the Cao Cao, Liu Bei, or Sun Jian faction through 36 turns (one year in game time), to get a taste of the action before they purchase the title. Fans who play through the trial won’t be able to transfer save data into the full version, and since the demo was based on an in-development version of the game, the trial might have known bugs or errors that will be different from the final version of the game.

KOEI TECMO Europe also released a fresh set of assets including a Launch Trailer and the final episode of the Developer Diary series, offering fans a deep look into the development of the renowned series, with Producer Echigoya-san.
