Koei Tecmo has announced that Warriors Orochi 4, the latest instalment in the one versus thousands action game series, will launch on the 16th of October in North America and on the 19th of October in Europe. The publisher also revealed that the game will feature the return of fan-favourite split screen co-op.
Warriors Orochi 4 features the inaugural appearance of Magic abilities, allowing characters to wield phenomenally powerful and visually impressive attacks against their most challenging foes. These new-found powers come from the Gods’ most divine artefacts: the Sacred Treasures. In this distorted, merged version of their worlds, all Warriors are unexpectedly gifted with a Sacred Treasure that fuels their spell-casting attacks. Alongside their legacy moves and special attacks they can now cast ranged and targeted spells, or even combine their powers with those of an ally for truly devastating blows!
Koei Tecmo also released a new trailer that offers a deeper look into the game’s first announced new character: the father of the Greek pantheon: Zeus. Wielding the mighty Keravnos Zeus has the power to call down thunder to devastate his enemies and he seems to partner up with familiar faces from the Warrior-verse to defeat a yet-unknown foe.
Warriors Orochi 4 will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
