KOEI Tecmo has released a new trailer for Dynasty Warriors 9, dedicated to its release date. Dynasty Warriors 9 releases on February 13th and will be the first true open world installment of the franchise.
The game aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious experience to date. It will also introduce 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 attack deals progressively more damage. Moreover, these attacks aim to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
The game will also feature skirmishes, clashes, special side missions, and larger scale conflicts. These battles range from scouting missions to discover powerful enemy officers, to guerilla 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.
Dynasty Warriors 9 follows the personal struggles and progression of the player’s chosen character through the completion of both key and secondary events.
The story of the Three Kingdoms era is presented in over ten riveting chapters, each reflecting changes in the balance of power. Therefore, each Chapter will take the player a step deeper into the military and political machinations of the era. The game will begin with the Yellow Turban Rebellion and will take players through the ultimate unification of China.
