Popular real time strategy series Romance of the Three Kingdoms will be releasing its thirteenth iteration on December 10th next month. It was originally to be available on PS3, PS4 and PC, though only in Japan and Asia, according to Destructoid.

Producers Koei Tecmo announced its news at the Tokyo Game Show, and also revealed for the first time that an Xbox One version is in the pipeline. The title will be available in English, Chinese and Korean for its PS4-exclusive Asian versions, but nothing has been said about a wider release for western regions.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with the release of the new game, and is based on the eponymous novel along with historical text Records of the Three Kingdoms. It charts the progress of the Han dynasty in China and the many wars they find themselves in with rival factions.

As there is no current western release many fans may miss out at least for a while, but there is always the possibility of importing an Asian version of the game.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
