New characters added and pre-launch demos planned.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 this year in Japan, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

The game will featured enhanced Stratagems, as well as large-scale Stratagems. If you’re of a higher position, you can give orders to other military commanders.

Like the previous game, you can be married in Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires. A short time later, it is also possible to have children.

Players will be able to edit their flags, soldiers, and horses.

At least one new military commander has been added, which could be either Xun Yu, Cheng Pu, Lu Kang, Gao Shun, Wang Ping, or Zhuge Jin.

Two demos are planned for release before the game launches, dubbed “Edit” and “Cooperative” demos.

Thanks, Re: Zaregoto.

    No, no, it’s wrong. These characters are from the Most Wanted Characters by the last Famitsu Poll, this doesn’t mean they’ll all be added. They’ve just said that a new character FROM this poll will be added, go and check out KOEI Warriors Forum. Who it’s going to be? 100% Xun Yu.

      Apologies. Misread that. Early morning and what not.

      So, out of all those characters, they pick the one character that will be rather unnecessary given the others of the same type already in the game. They should have taken a very late era Wu character, for example, to spice up Jin’s story line so you’re not always beating up generics, or Ding Feng. Gao Shun could be nice too, to spice up early stages. Though I think an Empires game would benefit the very most from having Yuan Shu and Ji Ling unique.

  • Jack Frost Hee ho

    They’ll probably just be premade customs like some people from DW7E won’t they? Not full actual characters?

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    will the children be edit-able? Or will the children be random like The Sims?

    • Ben h

      I’ve always wanted this since my first empires game! the troops never matched my officer colors for example
      officer: Red
      soldiers: blue
      now only if you were able to chose the color of your territory on the map.

      • Warboss Aohd

        i know right?

        That and Created Officers almost always defaulted to blue (did have one get Green Troops…….i guess since i started him as a Shu officer)

  • trdegreenia .

    I want this game now seriously I don’t need English voices just give me subs push this shit out by the end of the summer.

  • Ben L

  • akiko_sakuraba

    Yang Huiyu and Sima Shi FAMILEEEEEH

  • sakanaとkoeda

    I wonder if they’ll ever have political marriages? Like have an option to marry and form a long term alliance, with possible merging of the warring states if the relationship holds. Oh and assassination attempts too. And why not throw in battlefield conditions: blizzards, heavy rain, fog, sandstorms…

  • DukeMagus
