Trying before buying is now officially an option worldwide for the new Dynasty Warriors game. Koei Tecmo released the Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo on consoles. It features an opportunity to test out two types of gameplay. People can also create characters they can use in the full game. Japan got its chance to play the trial back in December 2021.
First, the main activity in Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo is seeing what the Castle Sieges are like. People can both try to protect their base in Defensive Battles or invade someone else with, well, Invasion Battles. There is only one difficulty level here. However, tutorials are present and the final game offers multiple difficulty levels.
As for custom characters, Edit Mode is present in this trial. People can make a Custom Officer. This character can then either be used in the Castle Sieges present in the demo or saved for the full game. Once that launches, someone can import that data.
Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires will appear on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Google Stadia on February 15, 2022. It is immediately available in Japan. People with consoles can get the Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo now.
