It's basically a 4X strategy game which fuses elements from Civilization 4/5 with Total War, sort of.

All the action takes place on one spectacular game map that brings to life the mountains, forests, plains and deserts of China.

That's good to know. :lol: It would be cool to finally be able to play on an Asian TSL map with more than 50 civs.

Don't get your hopes too high, so far I only have interest on the Ba and Xianbei. And yes, it would be awesome to finally be able to make an Asian TSL campaign with all the slots filled up, that's the reason European campaigns are so common and successful. :)
