KOEI TECMO AMERICA ANNOUNCES THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF RENOWNED STRATEGY SERIES, ROMANCE OF THE THREE KINGDOMS

Developed in Celebration of the Series’ 30th Anniversary, ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII’ Unites Deep, Strategic Gameplay with Nearly Endless Customization

Burlingame, Calif.—April 1, 2016—This summer, KOEI TECMO America invites gamers to rediscover a turbulent era of political instability, large-scale conflict, and human drama with the western return of historical simulation/epic strategy series Romance of the Three Kingdoms after an eight-year hiatus. Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII will launch in North America on July 5, 2016 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PC via Steam®.

Based on the beloved novel of the same name, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII has been developed in celebration of the franchise’s 30th anniversary. The game uses the tale of a collapsing dynasty and the emergence of power-hungry factions to set a complex chessboard on which players can follow and influence the fateful events leading to the unification of 2nd century China.

Fans of strategy games will find Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII to be a challenging and rewarding blend of deep strategy and historically accurate warfare, regardless of their familiarity with the rich story of the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. 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 selection of options for conflict resolution, the most impressive of which are the armies. A wide variety of army units can be recruited and trained, including foot soldiers, cavalry, artillery, and navy, 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: the Campaign mode, which stays true to the most profound of strategy games by allowing players the freedom to choose a starting year and customize the board to their liking before attempting to beat the game, and the Hero mode, which acts an in-depth tutorial, closely following historical events while teaching players all of the game’s mechanics. In Hero mode, players familiar with characters from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series can also enjoy an alternative way to relive the exciting lives and adventures of those heroes before proceeding to leave their own mark on history!

Players also have nearly endless customization choices in Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII, with the option to take on the mantle of one of 700 historical characters (including fan-favorites such as Zhao Yun, Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and more), or create their own unique character and try to climb the proverbial leadership ladder.

To better illustrate the style and feel of the upcoming game, KOEI TECMO America has released a teaser trailer and a batch of in-game assets showcasing battle scenes and characters. More news and information on Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII will become available in the coming weeks.

    toelessfoot @Melmoth: They should really sell a controller-less G2, I'd definitely get one. It can be used with Index controllers too. (1 Day ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth An inside-out tracking-solution would make things much simpler. The G2 seems fantastic for sims, but unsure about the controller tracking. (1 Day ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @toelessfoot: The problem i have with the CV1 is having to move the sensors between two rooms when going from a sim setup to roomscale. So much hassle that i rarely use roomscale at all. (1 Day ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @Melmoth: Yeah I came from a Rift CV1, kind of wish I hadn't sold it for the good tracking and OLED contrast, not to mention my computer could run more games at its native res. (1 Day ago)

    nostradamus @Melmoth: you have this [url] its pretty decent if you can stomach that unforgiving sonic physics in 3d [url] (1 Day ago)

  • Melmoth
