Three Kingdoms: Fate of the Dragon is a real-time strategy game based on the 14th century historical Chinese novel entitled Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Known to be one of the most famous and turbulent periods in Chinese history, the story has been passed down the generations throughout Asia through books, plays, puppetry, and storytellers. Now, in the Chinese Year of the Dragon, Eidos Interactive brings The Three Kingdoms to a worldwide audience with the release of Three Kingdoms: Fate of the Dragon on the PC.

At the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty, government officials were fighting for power while ordinary people were starving to death. In 184 AD, large groups of farmers rose in rebellion against the state. The empire of the Eastern Han Dynasty suppressed this rebellion, but in doing so, the empire itself, which had been in decline for many years, collapsed. In the confusion following this collapse, rival warlords took control of their respective territories and set up their own kingdoms, splitting China into three parts.

As one of these three warlords, build your own regime, develop new technologies, and create a mighty army in an attempt to control The Three Kingdoms and reunify China.
