Tecmo Koei Europe has today announced the upcoming launch of Dynasty Warriors 8, the latest title in the phenomenally popular series. Dynasty Warriors 8 launched in Japan earlier this year and will be making its way to Europe and North America this summer.
As with previous titles of the series, Dynasty Warriors 8 follows the stories of the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and Jin through the actions of historical military and political figures of the time as they fight to gain control over the Three Kingdoms of China. However this sequel takes the much loved IP one step further, merging numerous replay elements like multi-endings and extra modes with synergies between action and game systems, making a game that people won’t want to put down.
Apart from the Story Mode, which comes with new episodes and characters and takes a deeper look at the drama that unfolds in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Warriors 8 includes all new ‘What if?’ scenarios. Breaking away from historical fact, this mode takes a look at what could have happened if famous characters had lived to fight another day. This way the story branches out to different outcomes providing variety in the course and ending of the videogame and giving the players the power to view an alternate version of history depending on their choices.
The next instalment of the fan-favourite tactical action franchise will be available in stores on the 12th July 2013, on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Dynasty Warriors 8 and other forthcoming titles from Tecmo Koei Europe.
