Game company Koei Tecmo and developer Omega Force recently revealed during the Tokyo Game Show 2020 livestream the newest project they are making, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires.
The upcoming strategic battle video game is currently in development and will be released on several platforms. It will be available in Early 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
This is the 20th anniversary of DYNASTY WARRIORS,” says producer Akihiro Suzuki, “and we couldn’t be more excited than to celebrate with our faithful fans by delivering the first new WARRIORS series game on next-gen consoles, and the first new DYNASTY WARRIORS series game on Switch.”
“This is the first new Empires game in five years, and I can’t wait to deliver the ultimate Empires experience our fans have been waiting for.”
This game combines the 1 vs. 1,000 action of the Dynasty Warriors franchise with the addition of strategic elements including unit command. There will be powerful Siege Battles that will enable commanders to deploy units to capture strategic points on the map like castles. At every turn, the stakes get higher and higher as players take control of central points on the battlefield through the use of fire attacks or other stratagem, siege weapons, and sometimes by force.
There is also the edit function that enables players to create the officers of their dreams and interact with the heroes of ancient China through an expanded domestic system. They can live the life of a kind ruler or just become as evil as they can be as a villain.
