DescriptionRomance of the Three Kingdoms VIII is the eighth installment in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms turn-based grand strategy game series. Once again, it is based on the historical events of the Chinese Three Kingdoms period. The story takes place in 3rd century A.D., when the Han Dynasty was powerless to stop a civil war in China, and when warriors from different provinces tried to defeat each other and gain the power to rule over the whole country.
The game offers some enhancements compared to the previous installments. The player can now control all eight main characters during the same game. Of the 711 officer characters, the player can create 100. Each of those officers has unique skills which can be employed in combat or help to create a powerful army. The player can also freely choose a starting date for the game events, ranging between 184 A.D. (Yellow Turban Rebellion) and 234 A.D. (death of Zhuge Liang, one of the most important strategists of the time period).
