Koei Tecmo recently had a lot to share about their upcoming game Dynasty Warriors 9, which is taking a big step with an open-world with plenty of new actions. Famitsu shares a first look with new screenshots.
The game takes place in an open-world setting, but it’ll still be Dynasty Warriors, where you’ll take on thousands of enemies at a time, and it’ll still take place during the Three Kingdoms of China—the only difference is that it’ll take place on one big map.
With an open-world setting, there’s plenty of new actions in Dynasty Warriors 9, where you’ll get to attack enemies from a long distance with a bow, sneak around enemy bases, and more.
The game also introduces a new “State Combo” system, a three-stage system with a trigger attack, combo flow, and powerful finisher that can be adjusted according to the enemy’s situation.
You can catch up on more info plus comments from key staff in our earlier report.
Dynasty Warriors 9 is in development for PlayStation 4.
