The martial classic Romance of the Three Kingdoms returns with the monumental 10th edition of KOEI's historical simulation series.

The adventure begins when the beleaguered Chinese empire falls victim to a rebellious plot, and endures over one hundred years of civil war. China's turbulent history is revealed in breathtaking detail as you take the roles of Ancient China's most extraordinary figures including peasant turned emperor Liu Bei, conqueror Cao Cao, the elite warrior Zhao Yun, and brilliant strategist Zhuge Liang.


RTKX reinstates the highly favored officer-based play system, but with a greater focus on character and story. The improved Officer-based system now includes new in-game events taken directly from the eponymous novel. The game's events are viewed and interpreted differently by each officer and affect the personal life of the player's character, adding a greater sense of drama to the game.


Through the Officer-based play system the player's experience is affected in various ways by social class. The player has a choice of characters from five distinct social classes: Sovereign, Viceroy, Prefect, Vassal, or Free officer.


In Western cultures, the Three Kingdoms period is best known for its images of great warriors clashing in violent battles, but the complete history places equal importance on the debates had by civil servants like Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi. For the first time in the series, the recreations of these debates allow players to experience the significant political victories of the time.


War in RTKX is carried out through two types of conflicts: regional battles and campaigns. Local battles include field skirmishes, sieges of enemy cities, and urban-based combat. Large-scale campaigns involve all of the cities in a given region, and are waged only by armies of sufficient size. As enormous armies begin to form, the growing threat of campaigns adds a new level of tension that lasts well up until the game's end.
