In a big move, KOEI TECMO revealed important news for the upcoming Dynasty Warriors 9/Shin Sangoku Musou 8. In addition to the Playstation 4, it will also be launched on Steam as well as the Xbox One. Omega Force showed off a pile of assets that show just how gorgeous and deep the land of China will be in the next release in the franchise.
No matter where in the land your character wanders, the war will rage on around them. Skirmishes, clashes, special missions as well as larger-scale conflicts can be taken on at the players’ discretion, allowing for unprecedented freedom. The battles range from scouting missions, discovering powerful enemies, and stealth guerilla attacks to steal information/stop spies. Dynasty Warriors 9 is far more than a simple beat ’em up; it’s what you make of it.
To further expand the choices available to the player, KOEI TECMO is also introducing two new playable characters to the game, each formidable in their own right! Man Chong, from the kingdom of Wei, is a brilliant general, skilled debater, and an excellent tactician. Meanwhile, Zhou Cang from the kingdom of Shu is best known for his incredible stamina and speed. Both characters join an already strong roster of fan favorites and will provide an even more diverse selection for players keen on exploring different storylines in different kingdoms.
