October is going to be a big month for Omega Force’s Dynasty Warriors 9, with finally after being released 8 months ago we will now be receiving a fan demanded key feature to the Warriors title – Multiplayer!
There are sparse details right now, and no real confirmation if the update will come west (however it is very likely due to Dynasty Warriors 9 being built with Worldwide in mind). The update will offer both Online and Offline multiplayer for you to enjoy China with a friend!
Also a bit more news has surfaced in regards to future support for the game, which there will be plenty of. More costumes, weapons and even more Scenarios are planned for future paid DLC, so perhaps we are likely to see a Season 2 Pass that seams to be all the trend these days.
You can find the Tweet from our buddy attached below:
Dynasty Warriors 9 is out now for Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC via Steam.
What are your thoughts on this news? Will you pick the game up again to enjoy it with a friend? What would you like to see in their future DLC plans? As always let us know in those comments!
Who would of thought when Dynasty Warriors 9 released back in February, and after it’s commercial failure that Omega Force would still be pushing out fixes and updates for it. Well here we are now in September – a whopping 7 months later – and Dynasty Warriors 9 has just received another Patch update, now leading the game to become Version 1.14 (or 1.13 for Steam version).
You can see the patch notes attached below:
Dynasty Warriors 9 Version 1.14 Patch Notes
– Added BGM from a previous title from the DYNASTY WARRIORS series.
– Added new bows.
– Added new arrows.
– Added a new feature that allows players to change the wallpaper, and added several new wallpapers to use with the feature.
– Improved the frame rate.
– Made improvements with respect to the numbers of enemies that appear on the battlefield.
– Increased the speed in which messages are displayed upon completing missions.
– Made improvements to the behavior of officers during battle.
– Corrected a number of other minor issues.
The Steam version has the same update, albeit as Version 1.13. The XBOX One version like always will be slightly behind due to how it is exclusive to the Western territories on that platform.
But as you can see, Omega Force and KOEI Tecmo still think there is some life still kicking in Dynasty Warriors 9. What are your thoughts on the games continued support? Let us know in those comments!
This past week, KOEI Tecmo Japan have revealed the contents of their second DLC pack for Dynasty Warriors 9; the Additional Weapons Pack. The pack will come with three new weapons (pictured above) and a new high level weapon variation for each weapon type.
The three weapons in question are Wang Yi’s Emei Piercers, Xu Shu’s Sword & Hook and Zhang He’s Claws. These will come accompanied with their own unique moveset and trigger moves.
It wasn’t too long before the release of Dynasty Warriors 9 that the weapons became a controversial subject with KOEI Tecmo claiming many weapons were not featured due to them not being “realistic”, yet here we are now seeing some of them added in as paid DLC. Whatever the mindset behind it, it is good that we are getting more variation to kill the numerous enemies that plague China in Dynasty Warriors 9!
The DLC Pack will release sometime this month, and will be free to those who have purchased the Season Pass, or you will be able to purchase the pack on it’s own on release.
What are your thoughts on this DLC? Are you glad these are the weapons being added? What other weapons would you like to see added? Let us know in the comments!
We may still know relatively little on the Western release for Dynasty Warriors 9 other than an Early 2018 window, however we now know the official release date for it in Japan on PS4 (XBOX One and Steam as well for the West). The game will be releasing 8th February 2018. What could this mean for us in the west? That is still uncertain but we are sure it will likely be within months (if not a universal release week like Ni-Oh). News and speculation on how the localisation will be handled, such as there being an English dub or not is still up in the air. But this certainly means we are getting one step closer to checking out Omega Forces new take on the Warriors franchise.
Along with this news, KOEI Tecmo announced there will be a Season Pass for Dynasty Warriors 9. What it will entail is still undisclosed but we can only hope this isn’t the start of certain campaigns being locked off behind a paywall. Imagine having to pay to be a part of the Yellow Turban Rebellion or the Dong Zhuo Uprising? We will definitely be keeping a close eye on how things will progress.
Other than that, usual pre-order incentives were mentioned, such as collaborative costumes for Zhao Yun and weapon skins depending where you purchase the game – along with e Deluxe Edition of the game including the Season Pass being released alongside it. All pre-order incentives will become available for purchase later after release, however it is unknown if Season Pass holders will get them for free or not.
What are your thoughts on Dynasty Warriors 9 and it’s upcoming pending release? Are you excited or horrified at the aspect of a Season Pass? Let us know in the comments!
As it looks like Dynasty Warriors 9 is getting closer to finishing development, more and more information and details are being officially revealed. One of these is yet another new character, Xun You of Wei. But who is this fellow? And why is his name shockingly close to the last games added character; Xun Yu? Well lets elaborate on who and what Xun You’s involvement in Dynasty Warriors 9 is!
Xun You, one of many famous advisors for Cao Cao, was known most through the war against the Yuan family and especially the battle of Guandu where he served as Chief Advisor. He is the cousin to Xun Yu (Thus name relation), and became an advisor for Cao Cao by his recommendation. Along with leading many successful tactics against the Yuan family, he also advised alongside Cao Cao to attack and decimate the remainder of Lu Bu’s forces forcing his hand to hold up at Xia Pi Castle. Xun You also was strongly against Cao Cao’s aspiration to become Duke of Wei, and due to this succumbed to illness and died in 214AD.
In Dynasty Warriors 9, Xun You will be a part of Wei’s army post Dong Zhuo uprising. He wields a Steel Whipsword. Being with Cao Cao, he will prove just how easy it is to run rings around the larger Yuan family armies, and secure victory with wits rather than manpower!
Are you glad to see Xun You make it into the game? Let us know in the comments!
More information was revealed through KOEI Tecmo’s official channels today for Dynasty Warriors 9! We won’t go into much detail ourselves, but feel free to check out the Fresh new gameplay trailer attached as well as the official Press Release!
A few quick notes. No news on platforms still, nor a release date.
What do you think of the game so far? We are super excited! Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Hertfordshire, 22nd June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe today revealed exciting new combat mechanics and exploration features slated to debut with the upcoming instalment in developer Omega Force’s long-running action franchise, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9. An impressive new trailer released alongside today’s announcement provides a closer look at the beautifully rendered environments and dynamic combat systems that players can look forward to.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 introduces exhilarating new combat mechanics to the series’ signature “one versus thousands” style gameplay with the State Combo System. This new system allows players to perform 3 different attack styles – Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks – each dealing progressively more damage. Trigger Attacks allow players to create the start of an explosive combo, leading to Flow Attacks, which adapt to the enemy’s current state. Successful combos allow for a Finish Attack to be performed, delivering a final blow that eradicates any foes caught in its path. These new enhancements aim to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
Augmenting the series’ first true open world is another immersive innovation introduced in DYNASTY WARRIORS 9: the Interactive Action system. Players will be able to fully utilise their surroundings for the first time in the Warriors franchise with the ability to climb buildings and mountains, wield grappling hooks to traverse walls, and make use of objects like oil barrels in battle. These new actions offer a breadth of new possibilities for players to take advantage of while travelling around third-century China, or when caught in the heat of battle!
Unifying the classic, time-tested action iconic to the Warriors series with a variety of new features, characters, and content in an expansive open world environment, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious DYNASTY WARRIORS experience to date. Platforms, release timing, and more information on the game’s new features, characters, and narrative will be unveiled in the coming months.
