Koei Tecmo released some new information on their strategy game Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension, coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on October 25.

The publisher details how players will need to spend time ruling a town and the imports of facilities in their domain. Evidently, this is one of the most significant ingredients for turning a small village into a thriving city.

The publisher details further:

A key part of building a domain successfully is the strategic selection and use of Facilities. There are three different types of facilities available – Production, Dedicated and Military – all of which provide resources and boosts. Production Facilities generate gold, supplies, lumber and iron, Dedicated Facilities raise satisfaction levels within neighboring districts, and Military Facilities increase army size and bolster forces with greater weaponry and equipment. Each facility has limited productivity, however, and through strategic combination, players will notice greatly improved production rates, providing a wealth of resources for their domain.

Land also plays a key role in deciding how to shape an empire. Eventually, players will run out of room to construct additional facilities, so clearing land is an important way to discover new resources and uncover new plots to build on. Players can also alter the terrain to provide greater benefits to their domain. For example, water is hard to access while inland, but irrigating a canal will improve water control, allowing rice paddies to be cultivated.
