Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack Introduces Classic Scenarios via War Chronicles Mode

It's all-out war

A new mode has been revealed for Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV. To see what War Chronicles Mode has to offer, check out the full press release below.

KOEI TECMO America 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 February 11, 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 the Anti Dong Zhou Coalition”, “The Battle of Guandu”, “The Battle of Chibi”, “The Battle for Jing Province”, and “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’ll 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.

Expanding to the West

Not only do Switch owners get to experience Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV on Feb. 11th, 2021, we also get to enjoy the extra Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack on the same day! See what the expansion has to offer in the press release below.

KOEI TECMO America and famed developer Kou Shibusawa are excited to reveal the release date for their upcoming historical strategy game, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack. The expansion pack will release digitally on February 11, 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 Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack, players are able to acquire geographical advantages once they have conquered a certain amount of cities within a province, with each province boasting its own unique advantages to help, turn the tides in battle. For example: conquering the Qing Province grants the High Reputation ability -- expanding the auto conquer range -- while conquering Southern Jing Province enhances the probability of recruiting free officers or captives with the Rhetorician advantage.

Once certain geographical advantages are unlocked, players can open-up trade routes with Eurasian countries – a series first! The four great empires that existed during the same era, Daqin (Rome), Anxi (Parthia), Guishuang (Kushan) and Tianzhu (India) can now become trade partners, and through developing strong relations with each empire, players will earn techniques or books, teaching special tactics. The Parthian Shot Tome, for example, enables commanders to learn the Parthian Shot ability for their units, while Mansumriti increases politics and prolongs the life of ally units. Some of these abilities are extremely powerful, so players must carefully consider their relations with Eurasian empires, while at the same time preventing enemy forces from commencing trade.

In addition, new officer characteristics focusing on trade have been added to the Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack. March Leader decreases the number of days required for trade, while Special Envoy makes it easier to increase relation levels. These new characteristics help players smooth-out relationships with their trading partners.

On top of the new gameplay information today, KOEI TECMO Europe also revealed the early purchase bonuses for Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack, which 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.
