It has been just over 6 months now since Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV launched on PS4 and PC via Steam, with it’s Season Pass finally finished releasing it’s content. Now the major expansion for the title is on it’s way. Often known as the ‘Power-Up Kit’ in Japan, it is titled Diplomacy & Strategy Expansion Pack over here in the west.
You’ll be able to purchase the bundle as it’s own set via the PSN / Steam storefronts, as well as picking up the physical copy that includes the base game as well.
Prices and release dates are still up in the air, but we do know it is launching this Winter worldwide, likely Japan first and soon after in the West!
You can check out the official press details below:
The Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack is loaded with new possibilities, including trade with great Eurasian empires — including Rome and India — allowing for even broader strategies to unfold on a path to unify China. But that’s not all, as the expansion pack also introduces cities of foreign forces onto the map. Apart from conflicts in the central area, armies will now need to deal with intensified border clashes, upping the stakes in every skirmish.
In addition, new geographical advantages will be assigned to each province, so the strategies gamers will be able to choose from will vary dramatically depending on which provinces are conquered. For example: Conquering Qing Province expands the area you conquer, while conquering Yo Province allows you to open up trade with the nomadic tribe of the region, making the order of which province you conquer first now vitally important.
New officer characteristics and special tactics have also been added, along with new buildings for specific topography, a calendar that enables you to reflect on previous activities in the game, and an all-new campaign entitled “War Chronicles Mode”.
We will have more information in regards to the title soon, as well as a game page in the near future!
