All-New Short Scenarios to bring Iconic Romance of The Three Kingdoms Scenes to Life!
Hertfordshire, 19th November 2020 – KOEI TECMO Europe and famed developer Kou Shibusawa are excited to reveal the addition of War Chronicles Mode to Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack. The expansion pack will release digitally on the 11th February 2021 for the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System and Windows PC via Steam®, while also making its series debut as the first ruler-based Romance of The Three Kingdoms game on Nintendo Switch™.
In the thrilling new War Chronicles Mode, five new short scenarios will be added to the battlefield, including “Anti-Dong Zhuo Coalition”, the “The Battle of Guandu”, the “The Battle of Chibi”, the “The Battle for Jing Province”, and the “The Battle for Wuzhang Plains”. In this new mode, gamers will take command of forces which cannot be chosen in normal scenarios — such as Zhou Yu in the “Battle of Chibi” and rivals Zhuge Liang or Sima Yi in the heated “Battle of Wuzhang Plains” — and each scenario will include original events, adding even more excitement to the classic scenes in Romance of the Three Kingdoms. At the conclusion of each scenario, players will be evaluated and given a score according to several factors including how many turns were used, how many orders were consumed, and how many times a coordinated tactic was executed, testing the true skills of every gamer out on the virtual battlefield.
Beyond War Chronicles Mode, the ability to provide “false information” against enemy units was also revealed. “False information” is a unit command which disseminates disinformation to enemy units and leads them into traps. If you lay a trap in advance and activate the command “false information” against a marching enemy unit, your previous commands will be suspended and your unit will deceive the enemy unit to move toward the ensuing trap. With “False Information”, success depends on intelligence, so officers with high intelligence are going to play a more active part in battlefields than ever before. New officer characteristics referring to “false information” will also be introduced into the game, such as “Seer” and “Careless”, allowing officers to have more vivid and effective personality types throughout every campaign.
In addition, the new “Destroy Building” ability will enable players to sabotage structures on the map. Instead of simply marching units to destroy a building in a soldier’s way like in previous games, now you will be able to set traps like falling rocks to devastate buildings impeding your path to victory.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack also features a variety of early purchase bonus items that will be available to freely download within the first two weeks from launch. The bonus scenario ‘The Fall of Shu Han’ will be available for players on all platforms, while the ‘Battle of Yiling’ scenario, originally a bonus for the release of Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV, will be available exclusively to Switch players. Additionally, the ‘Legends of Galactic Heroes’ collaboration scenario ‘In the Middle of an Endless Dream’ and all characters of ‘Legend of the Galactic Heroes’ collaboration DLC #1 through #5 will be available as a Switch exclusive bonus. Characters excluding Reinhard and Yang will be available for two weeks after launch.
