Dynasty Warriors has been around since the days of the original PlayStation when it first debuted as a Soul Calibur style fighting game. When the game’s sequel was released with the launch of the PlayStation 2, it took on new life as the “one versus thousands” gameplay that we have come to know the series for today.
Now with the announcement of Dynasty Warriors 9, the series is taking its signature gameplay and tossing players into an open world sandbox of China at the emergence of the Three Kingdoms era. This new entry will feature 83 returning characters, a dynamic day/night cycle and will introduce the use of tools to help traverse the environment and give you the upper hand in battle. More info on new gameplay features and characters will be revealed soon, most likely closer to E3 next month. Meanwhile check out the gallery of Dynasty Warriors 9 images below.
