It’s one of gaming’s longest running series, but that doesn’t mean we’re anywhere near the end of the line for the fantastic Dynasty Warriors series. Today sees another entry join the franchise as Dynasty Warriors 9 has arrived on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Whilst Dynasty Warriors 9 brings fans the next major iteration for the series, things have been somewhat revamped for the latest adventure with Dynasty Warriors 9 taking players to a completely open-world setting this time around. In this adventure, players will be given free reign to roam the vast expanse of China, with travel possible on foot, horseback or by boat, while the large battles the series is so well known for take place in live environments such as the cities and towns within the land.
The character selection is once more at impressive levels too, with all 83 characters from Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires returning whilst new characters will also be introduced.
With hack and slash gameplay making up the bulk of combat, and elements of stealth incorporated too, players will be able to utilise the characters revised move-sets in this latest adventure as they look to invade and infiltrate enemy fortifications with the grappling hook. A dynamic day-night cycle and dynamic weather system will take the battle forward in real time, with vision affected by poor weather or the night-time environment, meaning you’ll need to make the most of tactical decisions to get ahead of the enemy leaders on the battlefield.
