Dynasty Warriors goes open world, and I’m occurring a protracted vacation so I can ponder this information with some semblance of calm.
Dynasty Warriors 9 was introduced this weekend by all three main arms of Koei Tecmo.
Gematsu has gathered collectively all of the obtainable info from Japanese sources, a very powerful of which is that Dynasty Warriors 9 is an open world sport.
Omega Force mentioned it didn’t see the purpose in simply doing the identical outdated factor once more for this new numbered collection entry, which is fairly amusing given the historical past of the franchise; I do say that with love, although.
The open world of Dynasty Warriors 9 reproduces the entire of China, however because of the mountains not each location will host battles. Famous battle areas like Hulao Pass and Zhongyuan will likely be extremely detailed. Players will be capable of wander out and in of villages as they stroll concerning the panorama.
This is already change sufficient to have we outdated collection trustworthy sewating, however Omega Force additionally mentioned Dynasty Warriors 9 will abandon the standard management methodology of Square for assault and Triangle for Charge assault. The primary gameplay idea of 1 v 1,000 won’t change, although, and I’m positive the collection will retain the ramping issue between informal and hardcore modes which Omega Force has all the time been very happy with.
Finally, Omega Force mentioned the complete forged of 83 characters showing in each sport as much as Dynasty Warriors eight Empires will likely be playable, and there will likely be a small variety of new faces, too. One of those is Zhao Cang, a comedic character who makes use of a Dai Satsu Katana weapon, and also will seem within the upcoming PS4 and Vita title Musou Stars, which has not been confirmed for western launch.
At this stage we solely have the announcement trailer above and a few idea artwork to indicate for Dynasty Warriors 9, which has not been dated. We additionally don’t have any info on platforms, however because it was introduced throughout a PlayStation broadcast PS4 appears a protected wager. Xbox One might be on the playing cards, too.
Don’t thoughts the quantity eight within the Japanese emblem; the numbering discrepancy is without doubt one of the artefacts of localisation we’re nonetheless dragging round right this moment.
