As it was revealed back when the announcement for the Japanese release date for Dynasty Warriors 9 came, it was known a Season Pass will be up for purchase alongside it. But what does this Season Pass actually offer? Will it be much different to the way older Dynasty Warriors game titles have done their DLC? Let’s delve a little deeper, first with the official details of what comes with the Season Pass:
Additional Scenario Pack
-NPCs Xiahouji, Dong Bai, Hua Xiong, and Yuan Shu become playable.
-Additional scenarios, events, and actions for each officer.
Additional Weapons Pack
-Addition of three new weapon (action) systems.
-Addition of three high level weapon models for each weapon.
Hideaway Customisation Pack
-Addition of exclusive scenarios where you can obtain exteriors and furniture.
-Addition of 10 furniture models.
-Addition of five models that change exteriors and interiors.
Season Pass Bonus
-12 materials that can be used for advanced weapon / cooking / item development.
Each of the packs will be sold separately also, but naturally bought outside of the Season Pass would cost more. We have no time frame on when these “Packs” will release yet, but it’s doubtful that they will take too long judging by the content on offer.
Is it worth picking up? That is still in the air, as we don’t know just how many new scenarios will be available (We are sure Zhong Hui’s Rebellion will be one of them, as DLC-baited in certain endings), or how extensive the new storylines for the four unlocked characters will be. It seems to be a little more content heavy to what we are use to, but this Season Pass isn’t going anywhere. When the DLC (or more details) start to drop you can still get it for that inclusive bundled price.
The Season Pass costs £19.99/€24.99/$24.99, and purchasing will give you the Season Pass Bonus set straight away.
We also want to make a quick note that our review is still in progress and will be ready very soon so stay tuned for that!
