Here is an overview of the expansion, via its official website:

New Features

  • Additional strategies with new geographical advantages and nomadic tribes – New geographical advantages will be assigned to each province, so the strategy you will be able to choose from will vary dramatically depending on which provinces are conquered. In addition, foreign cities will also appear on the map, requiring intense strategizing on whether you should fight or form friendships with them.
  • A series first! Trade with Eurasia! – Trade with great Eurasian empires that existed during the same era, such as Rome and India, to earn specialties and tactics resulting in various benefits.
  • An all-new campaign: “War Chronicles Mode” – The all-new campaign “War Chronicles Mode” allows players to enjoy famous events from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Test your skills in these short scenarios consisting of limited forces and maps, and view results such as score and the number of turns used to clear the campaign.
  • Further powered up! New characteristics and tactics – The addition of new characteristics and special tactics make the already alluring officers of the Three Kingdoms appear with greater charisma. More functionalities are also planned, including new buildings for specific topography, and a calendar allowing players to reflect on previous activities in the game.
