Hegemony (noun): leadership or predominant influence exercised by one nation over others, as in a confederation.
Koei Tecmo released a new trailer for the upcoming Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV, during Tokyo Game Show 2019. Prepare to paint the land of China with your colors, when the battle for hegemony begins anew! It’s coming in early 2020 from Koei Tecmo to PC and Playstation 4, and will have 46 cities and 340 regions. Each region will have its own source of income, which will be gathered via the collection of tiles. The more land you hold, the better resources.
Land is incredibly important, as is strategy, and in RTKXIV, the ability to recreate famous battles will be possible, such as Zhuge Liang’s northern expeditions. Furthermore, Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14 introduces a new government structure to each faction to help broaden the range of possible strategies. By assigning officers in appropriate positions in an organizational chart, factions develop a unique set of effects and commands; and depending on how the government is organized, the same faction can end up having widely different strategies available.
Government has five divisions: war, logistics, strategy, administration, and HR, and the organization’s chart varies depending on the principal of the leader. Among the six types of principles, examples include Liu Bei’s benevolence, Sun Quan’s secession, and Cao Cao’s supremacy – a principle that is more likely to benefit from a constant state of war.
