Koei Tecmo is working on the next full installment in the Dynasty Warriors series. The game has yet to receive official platforms or a release date, however, we have a new trailer to toss your way. As you can see in the trailer below, Dynasty Warriors 9 will feature a vast open-world with furious combat.
The new game will debut a bevy of combat mechanics and exploration features for the series. Its classic “one versus thousands” style will receive the new “State Combo System” mechanic. This feature enables gamers to execute a trio of unique styles of attack.
These three are Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks, all of which gradually deal more damage. Trigger Attacks will set off an explosive chain that leads to a series of Flow Attacks. These evolve to the enemy’s current state. Should you perform successful combos, you’ll be able to execute a Finish Attack.
The open-world is another feature Koei Tecmo and developer Omega Force are pointing to. It will bring forth the debut of the new system, Interactive Action. This enables you, the player, to completely use your surroundings for the first time. You’ll be able to climb buildings and mountains, wield grappling hooks to scale walls as well as blow up oil barrels to kill nearby enemies.
Koei Tecmo hopes these new elements will open up new gameplay possibilities. Additionally, they will likely create new combat experiences yet to be seen in the series. Hopefully these new features will help enhance the wild and fun action Dynasty Warriors is known for.
Dynasty Warriors 9 will receive details surrounding platforms and release date in the days ahead. Some expect the game to be a PS4 exclusive in some capacity, however, Koei Tecmo isn’t saying much about that at this point. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Dynasty Warriors 9.
