Koei Tecmo has officially announced that Warriors Orochi 4, the latest instalment in the one-versus-thousands action game series, will be released across North America and Europe in Fall 2018 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam.
Set in a world on the brink of chaos, heroes from across the Warring States period of Japan and the Three Kingdoms era of China successfully defeat the evil Orochi and end his reign. After overcoming their desperate struggle to save the world, our heroes return to their respective eras - or so they think. These two worlds, merged by an unknown entity, are again threatened and the heroes must find the key to restore them and return to their respective homes. As they begin to uncover the mystery surrounding their arrival in these new fused lands, their discoveries lead them to one deity: Zeus, the supreme god among gods.
Warriors Orochi 4’s gripping narrative can be experienced through the eyes of 170 characters, 165 returning from across the Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi universes – with five new characters joining the roster. The renowned one versus thousands battle action will see all new additions, with characters being able to cast powerful magic abilities to wipe out their foes; combining weaponry and magic can lead to devastating attacks which will stop enemies in their tracks.
Expect more details on the game’s release, narrative and new mechanics in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, you can check out some screenshots showcasing the magic battle action, returning characters, and new worlds which the heroes will fight across.
