We announced earlier in the month that a big October update was coming to KOEI Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors 9, which was to include 2 player co-op in both offline and online forms. So you can roam China with a friend, and beat up some peons in the process of conquering China.
Well now the update has gone live, so everyone who owns Dynasty Warriors 9 (on PS4/PC) can play in this 2 Player co-op mode (Though no cross-platform play, as expected). XBOX One owners of the game, don’t fret the update for you guys will be arriving shortly – it takes longer due to the XB1 version of the game being exclusive to the Western market.
Along with this 2 Player mode being added, some more quality of life editions have been included, such as more music from prior Dynasty Warriors titles, new bows and wallpapers for you to have a gander at. We’ll likely do a preview of sorts on the multiplayer aspect on the game in the coming days to let you guys know for sure if it’s worth dipping into the game again (or for the first time) now that you have a friend with you.
Below you can see some screenshots of the game in action in it’s 2 Player form.
What are your thoughts on KOEI Tecmo adding in Multiplayer co-op 8 months after launch? Are you excited to give it a go with a friend? Let us know in those comments!
