out the official details here:
■ Domestic System
By appointing an area overseer to each of the centers of
your areas, you can promote development and increase gold income. Since in area
development, the type of development each area overseer is good at depends on
their abilities and characters, how each area is developed will require
strategic management of personnel.
Also, area overseers will automatically suppress the
surrounding area with each turn. By expanding your controlled territory, not
only does your territory increase, but you can also serve to cut off an enemy
unit’s supply route. Such activities allow one to create a kind of “Offense
Administration” that can cooperate with your military actions.
Cities / Gates
Cities, after fulfilling a number of conditions, will
expand. Not only will it receive a number of benefits, like higher durability,
increases in gold and supplies, and so on, certain of the cities will develop
tactics that can be activated as counters during battle.
Also, in important locations there are Gates like Hulao
Gate and Yangping Gate. Troops can be stationed there. These gates can also
activate tactics. This means that city expansion and the use of gates become an
important tool for defense and will greatly affect conflict around bases.
■ Battle System
Deployed officers can use the tactics they know to
greatly reduce enemy numbers, drop them into disorder and immobilization in
order to make battle more advantageous for them.
In addition, some officers have unique and powerful
tactics, which when triggered, can greatly change the flow of battle.
Tactics can be linked among nearby officers with high affinity, like sworn
brothers, to release even more powerful effects. These will be of great aid to
them in leading their force to victory.
■ One Single Map
The new battlefield allows the construction of various
Buildings that allow the player to customize for his or her own advantage.
In addition to military facilities that automatically
attack encroaching enemy or which lowers supply consumption, there are also
Obstacles that restrict enemy actions and Traps that will cause damage to
nearby enemy units. There are also Buildings like “Stone Soldiers” which only
certain officers can construct.
By carefully mixing these buildings, you can recreate the
dramatic fights of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms
period, like the Battle of Yiling and its large scale fire attack.
Players will see various battle scenes as enemies meet in
differing locations and situations.
The front lines will see a variety of battles: Siege battles that involve towers and catapults, Naval battles where attack ships and roofed ships clash furiously.
Where to meet the enemy, what kind of battle to fight. Strategies that take into account the battle conditions will be vital to your success.
