Koei Tecmo has revealed the next entry to the Dynasty Warriors series with the announcement of Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires. The developer has announced that Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires will be released for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires sets players on a path to unite China under one rule, and to do that you will need to take out thousands of soldiers with your weapons, as well as strategise how to take over the territory.
Koei Tecmo has confirmed that Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires will be coming out in early 2021. At the moment there is very little detail. Dynasty Warriors 9 was released in 2018 and in that review Jim wrote:
Sadly, this isn’t the breakthrough fans were expecting. Omega Force took a pretty big risk with Dynasty Warriors 9, and while its open world integration can be seen as a small triumph, this newest entry is marred by its heavily outdated approach to combat design.
