Dynasty Warriors 9 confirmed for PC

Dynasty Warriors 9 confirmed for PC

 

Back in June we got our first look at Dynasty Warriors 9, a game described by producer Akihiro Suzuki as an open-world "rebirth" of the series. Zhou Cang was confirmed as a playable character, and all 83 characters from Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires were slated to return as well, but other than that we really didn't have much to go on, including whether or not it would be released for the PC. The good news, announced by Koei Tecmo today, is that it will.

Along with the confirmation of a coming Steam release, the publisher also revealed two new playable characters who will appear in the game. Man Chong is a "brilliant general, skilled debater, and excellent tactician" from the kingdom of Wei, while Zhou Cang, from the kingdom of Shu, is famed for his incredible stamina and speed.

"Whether players choose to follow the main storyline quests or spend time exploring the vast natural wonders of China—from the lush cedar woods and bamboo forests of Chengdu to the legendary Great Wall—the ongoing war will continue to rage along their journey," Koei Tecmo said. "Skirmishes, clashes, special side missions, and larger scale conflicts can be engaged at the player’s will as they venture through far-reaching lands, allowing for a sense of freedom of choice for the player previously unfelt in previous Dynasty Warriors titles."

When exactly all of this will happen remains a mystery, but the important thing for now is that we can be sure that it is actually happening. Dynasty Warriors isn't listed on Steam yet, but you can have a poke around at koeitecmoamerica.com to find out more, and eyeball some screens down below.

Pretty excited to have another Dynasty Warriors coming to PC. Steam could always use some higher quality hack and slash games.
