Today, KOEI TECMO America and developer Omega Force are proud to announce that their highly-anticipated tactical-action game, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires is now available in North America for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles, Windows PC via Steam, Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, and digitally on PlayStation 5*. The gripping new title adds strategic elements to the exhilarating 1 vs. 1,000 action of KOEI TECMO’s revered DYNASTY WARRIORS series, as gamers set out on a quest to conquer ancient China through a combination of wisdom, might, and courage.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires lets gamers live a dramatic Three Kingdoms experience, playing as 94 of DYNASTY WARRIORS 9’s most famous and feared officers. Take them on a mission to break through an enemy fortress in the all-new evolved castle siege, or play politics behind-the-scenes, setting up logistics and alliances while formulating secret plans in your quest to dominate the kingdom.
The game features scenarios that transport fans to different periods, enabling them to play through historic moments like the Yellow Turban Rebellion and the Battle of Chibi. But just because you’re playing through historic periods, doesn’t mean you need to follow history in order to be successful. Re-write your own history of the Three Kingdoms in ways you’ve never imagined, like unifying China with all officers from Wu still alive, or by assembling your favorite officers into one command, or even by sparking a rebellion to take control of the map!
In addition, fans will be able to create their own officers inside the game’s in-depth edit mode. From distinct hairstyles, face paint, and tattoos to layered armor and gear, create the hero or villain of your dreams before striking out against enemy forces in a generational quest for power and glory.
As a bonus, the following special items can be downloaded on the PS Store, Nintendo e-Shop, or Microsoft Store until Feb. 28, 2022: Male Custom Zhao Yun Set, Male Custom Guo Jia Set, Male Custom Lu Xun Set, Female Custom Xin Xianying Set, Female Custom Lu Lingqi Set. Some of these items may be made available for purchase at a later date.
*By purchasing the digital or physical PlayStation®4 versions of DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires, you can receive an upgrade to the digital PlayStation®5 version of DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires at no additional cost.
