Anyone who plays gran strategy games is probably familiar with the fact that they can be rather demanding in terms of hardware, especially during the late game.
With the next-generation of consoles coming soon, we asked Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV Producer Kazuhiro Echigoya what he thinks the upcoming new PlayStation and/or Project Scarlett may bring to the series.
According to Echigoya-san, the powerful new hardware will usher evolution in terms of artificial intelligence (which incidentally is a crucial aspect in strategy games), including the collection and usage of gameplay data from the players themselves.
“These are my personal thoughts on what might happen. AI will definitely feel a lot more like it reacts realistically. I think we’ll experience that kind of gameplay.
The second one, with this game we’re actually collecting game data. It’s a bit of a “big data” aspect. I think we’ll be able to collect more data in real-time, and I believe this will simultaneously improve the AI systems as well.
I think those aspects will definitely benefit this series as well.”
The platforms for all regions will be PS4 and PC.
