In a strange turn of events, just like KOEI Tecmo surprise releasing Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition for Steam, they have done another sneaky release but this time for Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition – originally thought to be exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
However, the biggest surprise of all is that the title is not being released on Steam (Likely due to the Complete Edition and DLC being on sale still), but has released only on the Windows Store. You can check out the store page here, and purchase it now.
For further details, you can read the official description for the game below:
“Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends” introduces entirely new levels of fun to the refreshing gameplay vanquishing swarms of enemies with mighty warriors found in “Dynasty Warriors 8.”
A premium edition that includes most of the DLC! (some collaboration DLC not included)
In story mode, where you can immerse yourself in the vivid tales of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, it is now possible to play as the mighty warrior “Lu Bu,” and embark on a journey that depicts his way of life. Additionally, many new hypothetical scenarios to existing Romance of the Three Kingdoms battles have been added, as well as new playable characters, weapons types, growth/speedrun elements, and more! What’s more, a revamped Ambition Mode and completely new Challenge Mode offer whole new ways to enjoy the “Dynasty Warriors 8” universe.

The game comes in at 24.74GB and seems to only offer local play. The game also comes with English, French and Deutsch language support. So if you have a Windows 10 device compatible with the Windows Store, then this may be up your street if you’ve yet to delve into the world of Dynasty Warriors 8. Otherwise you can wait for the Nintendo Switch version releasing December 27th worldwide. There is currently no word if this edition will be releasing on Steam or other PC storefronts.
