A new beta patch for Total War: Three Kingdoms is now available for testing. Update 1.7.1 is incredibly lean, but its main aim is to address two long-standing errors regarding Three Kingdom’s portrayal of China, namely that Mount Song and the Hulao pass were in the wrong place.
This may not seem like a big deal for some, but Three Kingdoms has been praised for its rendition of this iconic period in Chinese history and the infamous Romance of the Three Kingdoms text. It’s also the first Total War game that’s tried to capture the hearts and minds of Asian audiences, so much so that all of the patch notes for the game are offered in Simplified Chinese in addition to English.
Getting the location of one of the ‘five great mountains’ of China right seems only polite, then. The patch also adds some more impassable areas around the Yellow River to prevent easy avoidance of key passes. These were given an uplift in the 1.6 update and their own bespoke battle maps, so it’d be useful if they weren’t made immediately redundant by going around.
