The game is also available for PlayStation3 via digital download and for PC via Steam. The celebrated DYNASTY WARRIORS Empires series returns with new features including deep customization of warriors, horses and armies, or even the creation of an original character in dynamic battlefields that evolve with environmental changes. Additionally, a brand new feature, the ability to import characters from DYNASTY WARRIORS 7 Empires, will be available after launch.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires focuses deeply on the chaotic lives of warriors as their fateful decisions affect the rise and fall of the nations in Ancient China as they bravely fight across vast plains, bleak wastelands, narrow ravines and immense castles. Players can select from 83 unique characters, or create their own original character. The visual customization available in Edit Mode goes further with the newly implemented ability to customize horses, banners and “normal” officers. Warriors must fight against not only enemies but also the forces of nature as the changing seasons bring new elements to the more than 35 battlefields affected by seasons and the passing of time. Additionally, the game’s Custom Scenario mode adds the ability to control what will happen across the vast Chinese continent, allowing players to adjust every last detail to form a brand new Three Kingdoms world.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires is the most feature rich and customizable DYNASTY WARRIORS game yet and as a reward to the longtime fans of the series Omega Force has added the ability to import characters from DYNASTY WARRIORS 7 Empires so players can continue their saga across multiple games.
