Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires announced for PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC

Abandon the open world formula in DW9 is good, that game was a disaster and bad design.

However, what's wrong with TGS2020? I haven't really seen anything new except this and a few smaller games.

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires announced for PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC

Due out in early 2021.

Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Omega Force have announced Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (Steam). It will launch in early 2021.

Here is an overview of the game, via Koei Tecmo America and Europe:

Combining the 1 vs. 1,000 action of Dynasty Warriors with the addition of strategic elements, including unit command, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires sets players on a quest to conquer ancient China by both sword and strategy. Powerful Siege Battles enable commanders to deploy units to capture strategic points on the map like castles. Experiencing high-stakes fights at every turn, players can now take control of these central points on the battlefield through the use of fire attacks or other stratagem, siege weapons, and, at times, simply by force as commanders execute their strategies and attack enemy troops by issuing vital commands to units throughout the skirmish.

And here are some additional details, via Koei Tecmo Japan:


Siege Battles where various Ways of Life, and wisdom and valor intersect. A “Three Kingdoms experience” depicted with high-quality visuals.

- Siege Battles, in which you capture points by various means.

- Diplomacy, the ebb and flow of which is determined by Way of Life and interactions with officers.

- Edit Function, now further evolved.

Siege Battles

Fight for the castle in an evolved Siege Battles where the area surrounding the castle is the battlefield.

Capture the castle gates by various means including destruction, annihilation, and infiltration, and fight with the ultimate goal of controlling the castle.


Players can experience various Ways of Life, including sovereign, shogun, private, non-government, and more. Interacting with various officers and building relationships will lead to stronger nation building.

Edit Function

Mix and match your favorite parts to create an original officer edit all your own. Through various events that unfold with Dynasty Warriors officers, your personal “Three Kingdoms experience” will play out even more dramatically.

According to Dynasty Warriors series producer Akihiro Suzuki, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires does not inherit the open-world system of its predecessor. Rather, it is a natural evolution of the Empires series that aims to use the resources of Dynasty Warriors 9 to create battles with a sense of scale.

Yeah... i'm not convinced.

I played the trial and the combat was pants. If it's the same one i'm passing on this too.
