Dynasty Warriors 9

Dynasty Warriors 9’s development is steaming ahead, and today the game’s publisher Koei Tecmo America announced which platforms will getting the latest entry in Omega Force’s long-running hack-and-slash series. Perhaps unsurprisingly, game will be made available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. At the time of this writing no release window for Dynasty Warriors 9 has announced.

Additionally, Koei Tecmo America released new details on Dynasty Warriors 9’s updated combat system. Here they detail the skirmishes, clashes, and side-missions you’ll be undertaking in the game. More than a mere twist on existing mission structures, these various new activities seem to add some welcome depth to the franchise.

“Whether players choose to follow the main storyline quests or spend time exploring the vast natural wonders of China – from the lush cedar woods and bamboo forests of Chengdu to the legendary Great Wall – the ongoing war will continue to rage along their journey. Skirmishes, clashes, special side missions, and larger scale conflicts can be engaged at the player’s will as they venture through far –reaching lands, allowing for a sense of freedom of choice for the player previously unfelt in previous Dynasty Warriors titles. These battles range from scouting missions to discover powerful enemy officers, to guerrilla actions to subdue messengers and scouts, to outright sabotage on enemy supply troops; success in these combat engagements offer great rewards and have an effect on future battles’ difficulty.”

In case you missed it, you can check out the most recent trailer for Dynasty Warriors 9 below:
