Following the official announcement of a release date for the highly anticipated Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires, Tecmo Koei Europe has revealed a selection of brand new screenshots taken from the PAL version of the videogame. Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires is set to be available early next year exclusively on PlayStation 3.
Taking the focus away from the historical figures that roamed the battlefields of the Three Kingdoms of China, Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires emphasises on a different kind of hero: the player. Combining thrilling battlefield action with strategic gameplay, Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires gives each player the opportunity to influence the way history unfolds: gain fame in battle and rule their own nation as a ‘Ruler’, use strategy to seize power and invade neighbouring territories as a ‘Strategist’ or become a mercenary and sell their services around the land as a ‘Free Officer’.
Through actions such as earning fame on the battlefield, protecting the people or looking to expand their own personal wealth and power, the choices made during the strategy and battle phases have an impact on the character’s position and allow for an even wider variety of personalised play styles. This new degree of choice is accompanied by a newly revamped Edit Mode, including weapon animation, personality, facial features and more, so that players can create their own unique characters and throw them into battle.
These characters can then be shared online for others to download and incorporate in their own game. Edited characters also include their creator’s play history with that character, so the play style is carried over, allowing for a simulated multiplayer experience. Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires will be made available early in 2013, exclusively on PlayStation 3, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
