DYNASTY WARRIORS 8: Empires receives launch date


OEI TECMO Europe have announced that the tactical action game, DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires will be release on 30th January 2015 across Europe for the PlayStation4 and Xbox One. The PC and PlayStation3 versions will also be available at launch.

The DYNASTY WARRIORS Empires series returns replete with new features including deep customisation of warriors, horses and armies, and even the creation of an original character in dynamic battlefields that evolve with environmental changes.

DYNASTY WARRIORS 8: Empires focuses deeply on the chaotic lives of the warriors as their fateful decisions affect the rise and fall of the nations they bravely fight for. Players can select from 83 unique characters, or create their own original character with a plentitude of options through the edit function. The visual customisation goes further with the newly implemented ability to customise their horses, banners and “normal” officers.

In the returning Empire mode, players can select from one of many distinct roles which are best suited to them or to experience the epic history and its outcomes through a different methodology of warfare in replay. Whether choosing from Liu Bei, a provincial ruler forced to wander the land in search of a home or Lu Bu, an egotistical warrior who moves from one betrayal to another in search of his own glory, players are swept up in the drama of warfare.

Courageous warriors trudge through Ancient China with its vast plains, bleak wastelands, narrow ravines and immense castles as they slash through enemy lines. In DYNASTY WARRIORS 8: Empires, warriors must fight against not only enemies, but also the forces of nature as the changing seasons bring new elements to the more than 40 battlefields affected by seasons and the passing of time.

The company have also announced that the game’s official website has launched and can be found here.
