Dynasty Warrior 8: Empires receives its officially release date today. On January 30, 2015 Dynasty Warrior 8 will be released in the US and across for the PS4 and Xbox One. The PS3 and PC versions will also be available at launch.
Dynasty Warrior 8 focuses on the chaotic lives of the warriors as their fateful decisions affect the rise and fall of the nations they bravely fight for. Players can select from 83 unique characters, or create their own original character with a plentitude of options through the edit function. The visual customization goes further with the newly implemented ability to customize their horses, banners and “normal” officers.
In the returning Empire mode, players can select from one of many distinct roles which are best suited to them or to experience the epic history and its outcomes through a different methodology of warfare in replay. Whether choosing from Liu Bei, a provincial ruler forced to wander the land in search of a home or Lu Bu, an egotistical warrior who moves from one betrayal to another in search of his own glory, players are swept up in the drama of warfare.
