Dynasty Warriors 8 is on track for release next year with over 70 warlords to play as and a handful of gameplay tweaks. You can play Dynasty Warriors 8 in story mode, free mode, view an image gallery or pick tutorial mode to learn the basics. The Jin Kingdom is in the game and the story will have some "what if" scenarios.

Dynasty Warriors 8 has new gameplay systems like Storm Rush. If your weapon has an edge over your opponent you can breakthrough their defense and hit them with a flurry of strikes.

Variable Counter is a skill you can use if your weapon has a disadvantage against the enemy’s. This move knocks the opponent and surrounding units back and changes your weapon. Just like Dynasty Warriors 7 you can switch weapons in battle.

When certain conditions are met you can do an Awakening. This buffs your character and unlocks your True Musou attack if you can defeat enough enemies when Awakening status is active.
