As we said in our last post, we have a line up of articles to cover many of the new things and information about the upcoming Warriors Orochi 4. This time we will be covering some of the early details revealed for the game, including new ways of gameplay and more.
So what do we have to look forward to with Warriors Orochi 4? Well first of all don’t worry, the game will be returning to it’s core mechanics of what makes a Warriors game, your traditional combination based attacks in stage based battles. No “ambitious” open world stuff going on here, just what you would want to expect from a sequel to Warriors Orochi series. Along with the usual actions, there is a new system called Divine Art Action that adds Divine Arts and Deification to the table.
Divine Arts are a new skill you can perform by equipping certain Sacred Treasures you obtain within the game, allowing you to take out your enemies in much more devastating ways. While the Deification side of things, seems to be quite interesting. This is a new mode for the game where you will progress through a story and by progressing you’ll unlock key characters for use and depending on certain conditions within the battle stages will power up their looks and abilities.
Away from the additions to gameplay functions, as we said in our last post there will be a total of 170 playable characters. This includes 5 new exclusive characters based around Zeus and his subordinates. With Zeus being the main antagonist of the game, that may be leaving you to wonder what of the titular character of the game Orochi? The series is named after him afterall. Well all we know so far is that him and “True Orochi” still exist within the game, and will play a vital role in the story. Hopefully we will have more details to share soon on this!
A few quick interesting facts before we sign off on this post. The game’s story and setting is being supervised by Yoshitaka Murayama, who you may know as the creator of a little known RPG series; Suikoden. Free Mode will be returning as expected as well as the three person team setup remaining. Collaboration characters (such as Ryu Hayabusa, Sophitia, Kasumi etc) will not be in the game, only those from Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires, Samurai Warriors 4 II and original Warriors Orochi characters will be there, plus the new 5 exclusives yet to be fully revealed.
So there we have it, an information dump for Warriors Orochi 4. The game is expected to release Q3 2018 worldwide on Playstation 4, XBOX One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. We will have more posts incoming soon, along with further updates to our game page! Let us know your thoughts on the game so far in the comments!
