DescriptionThe ninth installment in the famous series set in Ancient China is vastly different from previous games in the series. Most notably, players immediately assume the rank of a Ruler. Traditionally reserved as the highest rank in the series, the role of Ruler will test your leadership, management, and strategy skills. Combat takes place at a much faster pace than in previous installments.
The game features 15 Historical, 5 Fictional, and 5 Challenge scenarios, with multiple story endings and epilogues. An enhanced Officer Development System allows you to use points to increase officer abilities and skills or further an officer’s development by giving special items. New display shows capital, troop movements, geography, enemy strongholds, and more all on a single map displaying all of China. Player may set troop formations to activate over 30 different tactics; build towers or set traps to hold back invasions; use save data from Dynasty Warriors 4, Dynasty Warriors 4XL or Dynasty Tactics 2 to obtain a new officer. The game includes character-specific events and clear bonuses; 34 special event sequences; updated Tutorial System, hidden features and more.
