Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires announced for PC and current/next-gen consoles


Good planning is half the battle

Koei Tecmo has announced the next game in the expansive musou series Dynasty Warriors. As revealed at Tokyo Game Show this weekend, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires is currently in development for PC, as well as current and next-gen console platforms. It is expected to release in 2021.

Described as an evolution of typical DW warfare, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires eschews its predecessor’s open-world approach for more strategic gameplay. Players will use violence, diplomacy, and careful planning in perfect balance in order to capture or ally with armies and kingdoms throughout the land, growing in dominance as their power and influence spreads throughout ancient China.

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires will launch in 2021 on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch. You can check out a teaser trailer for the new game below.
