Seasons are a gameplay mechanic in Total War: Three Kingdoms. In the game, one year is divided into five seasons based on ancient Chinese philosophy of Wu Xing, including: Spring, Summer, Harvest, Autumn and Winter.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Having five seasons is a part of the historical authenticity that ties with the Wu Xing system that defines how all elements interact. These seasons will affect certain things in the game as well, for example harvest season improving how much food player will produce in the turn or the winter season eating in to player’s military supplies. Spending winter on enemy territory without proper preparations will surely cause trouble.

Every reform automatically occur in Spring, so player need to choose the next reform wisely and change the next reform in time if the situation requires.
