Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII for PlayStation 4 is a turn-based strategy game enriched with RPG elements. The production is a part of one of the oldest series in the genre, which was launched back in 1985. It was developed by Koei, the creators of all the previous installments in the series.

Story

The story of Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII takes place in China in the 2nd century B.C., in times of the Han Dynasty and the subsequent era of Three Kingdoms. While creating the game world, the developers used both historical records as well as the 14th century novel called Romance of the Three Kingdoms which presents a rather exaggerated version of the actual events. Such a solution allowed the creators to provide authentic factions, places and characters while having much freedom in writing the story and scenarios without the necessity of limiting themselves to the historical truth. The era presented in the game is the time of a power struggle in China. The player assumes the role of a commander who tries to reunite the country and restore peace within it.

Gameplay

In Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII for PlayStation 4, the player’s task is to wage war effectively, therefore we have to recruit armies, train units, equip them and then command them in battles. The game offers a tactically rich combat system – skillful use of terrain and special abilities of our officers can grant us victory even when we are greatly outnumbered.

The player also has to take care of the strategic aspect of war. It is necessary to move armies through the maps and set up proper supply lines, for hungry soldiers tend to desert quickly. Moreover, diplomatic activities and city management are also our responsibilities.

The game is played in turns. A great emphasis is put on statistics which describe virtually every element of gameplay. This enables us to predict the outcome of all actions with high accuracy.
