Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV is a turn-based strategy game, in which you will also find a lot of RPG elements. In the game, we play as a leader competing with the tides in the times of the break-up of China (II century BC). This title belongs to one of the oldest strategic series in history (the first installment of Romance of the Three Kingdoms appeared in the 80s of the last century). The well-known Koei Tecmo company (the devs of, among others, the previous installment) is responsible for its development and publication again.
The action of the game is set in the historical period known as the Three Kingdoms period - in the times when China collapsed after the fall of the Han Dynasty. The title draws its full weight from the pages of history but is also inspired by the various works that describe the period in question, such as the famous Chinese novel Tales of Three Kingdoms.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV is a turn-based strategy game in which the gameplay consists of warfare. The whole game - both strategic and tactical - takes place on a single map, divided into divisions (hexagonal areas). We recruit and train troops, as well as their proper equipment and command of soldiers during clashes with opponents. The game puts emphasis on tactics, land use, and the unique abilities of each hero. We can also use detailed tactics - e.g. cutting off enemy troops from supplies.
While playing, we also deal with strategy. Our tasks include moving the army around on maps and taking care of supplies and morale. We also conduct diplomacy and manage taken over areas. A lot of importance is attached to various statistics, which describe in detail the world presented and individual elements of the game. The heroes were treated in a similar way - their number is the highest in the history of the series (there are over a thousand different characters). Some will also propose their own ideas.
It is worth noticing, that we need to put our heroes into a specific hierarchy of command - its proper organization will provide us with additional benefits.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV can be played only solo. The basis of the game is the single-player mode.
