Today KOEI Tecmo Europe have released more information delving into the new Diplomacy functions within the expansion pack content for Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV. This includes actions you can take with foreign tribes such as Nanman, Xianbei, Wuhuan, Qiang and Shanyue.
You can read the full press info below along with a series of new screenshots:
The Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack allows players to interact with cities of foreign tribes, including the tribes of Wuhuan, Xianbei, Qiang, Nanman and Shanyue. While it has always been important to deal with conflicts in the central areas of China, now players must think twice about strategies on the borders where tense battles can now emerge.
If players decide to open trade with the foreign tribes of the region, they can send envoys to develop their relations after acquiring certain geographic advantages. For example: conquering Yo Province allows friendships to form with Wuhuan, while conquering Bing Province allows strong relations to form with Xianbei. Players will also have the choice to deploy their troops to conquer these tribes.
Once players form strong relations with, or successfully conquer the tribe, an Outlander Officer will join their forces. These extremely powerful officers utilize the “Siyi” formation to gain the upper hand in mountainous areas or forests. In fact, each tribe has a unique trait assigned to them — Qiang officers can activate “Bow Cavalry”, while Xianbei officers are equipped with “War Chariot”. Strategically recruiting Outlander Officers with desired traits will be pivotal in unifying China, while ensuring the officer’s conditions are favourable will ensure they do not leave the ally forces, as these units can easily turn on the player’s forces if their relationship changes for the worst.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV ‘Diplomacy & Strategy Expansion Pack’ will be launching this Winter in the West and December 10th in Japan. It’ll be launching on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. Keep an eye out on our site for more information on the title releasing over this weekend via TGS 2020!
