WATCH: New Dynasty Warriors 9 Trailer Features Gorgeous Open World Features
As we draw ever closer to the release of Dynasty Warriors 9, the team behind the game is showing off many of the great new features. In the last rendition of the franchise, new open world features will be included which will provide players even more to love. In a new Dynasty Warriors 9 trailer, the Koei Tecmo shows off all of the new aspects that players can take part in this new open world. Check out the video of the stunning open world, and be cautious that your jaw doesn’t hit the floor too hard.
In addition to the new Dynasty Warriors 9 trailer, Koei Tecmo also provided a description of what players can expect in the open world:
In Dynasty Warriors 9, roaming off the beaten path opens up greater experiences outside of the main story line – allowing powerful enemies to appear and challenge players with their advanced abilities and skills. These formidable opponents come in the form of humans; such as bandits, or beasts; such as wolves, which will provide additional valuable items or materials as a reward upon defeat. It may be tempting to take on these foes to gain the plethora of takings, but the situation should be carefully assessed – as fleeing from battle may be the safer option.”
With such an expansive open world seen in the Dynasty Warriors 9 trailer, players should know that it will take some skills to survive out there. Koei Tecmo recently released a press release that detailed all the skills players will need to hone in on. One of these include cooking, which will keep up your health and provide other enhancements to your skills. Crafting is another important trait players will need to focus on. Below is what the team had to say on that matter:
Another way of ensuring an edge in battle is through crafting new weaponry. These new weapons are crafted through scrolls – useful items which detail the required materials for a player to collect. To unlock the abilities to craft weapons, the required scrolls for each weapon must be collected; with some weapon’s blueprints split across multiple scrolls. Players are rewarded scrolls upon completing missions or by defeating certain enemies, which will unlock a weapon which can only be crafted at a blacksmith. Gems and accessories can also be crafted, which provide substantial boosts to the player. Gems are also found throughout the world and are used in the weapon’s forging process to provide additional effects – including a variety of different elemental abilities.”
For fans who want to take their experience to the next level, Koei Tecmo is also offering tons of pre-order bonuses:
Those purchasing the standard version of the game are given access to 3 Avatars – Lu Bu, Zhou Tai and Wang Yuanji, a bonus weapon – the “Black Dragon Fang”, and the previously announced seven costumes for fan-favorite characters. The seven costumes are inspired by traditional Chinese undergarment styles and include an imposing Beijing Opera-style costume for Zhao Yun and six individualized costumes for Guan Yinping, Diaochan, Sun Shangxiang, Lu Lingqi, Wang Yi, and Wang Yuanji. On the other hand, those who purchase the digital deluxe version are offered all of the previously mentioned items from the standard version plus the season pass, which will grant access to all future DLC for the title, and three original Dynasty Warriors weapons: The Amethyst Iron Blade, The Crimson Ring Blade and The Jade Splendid Swords.”
Dynasty Warriors 9 enters our own open world on February 8th on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
