Koei Tecmo announced that Omega Force’s upcoming open-world epic, Dynasty Warriors 9, will be released in North America and Europe on 13th of February for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Along with the release date, we also got some new screenshots showcasing both gameplay and cutscenes.
Dynasty Warriors 9 will venture into new territory as the classic, time-tested "one versus thousands" action, iconic to the Warriors series, is expanded to its first true open world installment with a variety of new features, characters and content that aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious experience to date. The game introduces exhilarating new combat mechanics with the State Combo System. This new system allows players to perform 3 different attack styles – Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks – each dealing progressively more damage and aiming to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise. Closely following real historical events and figures, Dynasy Warriors 9 will have players experiencing the story of the Three Kingdoms by completing key and secondary events over ten riveting chapters – beginning with the Yellow Turban Rebellion and through the ultimate unification of China.
Those of pre-order the game will receive an exciting bundle of bonus content comprised of seven costumes for fan-favorite characters. The bundle includes an imposing Beijing opera-style costume for Zhao Yun and six costumes inspired by traditional Chinese undergarment styles – one each for Guan Yinping, Diaochan, Sun Shangxiang, Lu Lingqi, Wang Yi, and Wang Yuanji.
