See Two Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires Weapons in Battle

Koei Tecmo have released two new videos, which demonstrate two of the weapons available to players in Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires: the formation rod and the revolving crossbow. The videos are brief, but the weapons were sufficiently impressive to warrant a post. Enjoy the clips below.

Our recent article details the full list of weapons that will be available, and features more screenshots, as well as the game’s opening cinematic.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires will be available in North America on February 24, and in Europe on February 27, on the PC (via Steam), Xbox One, PS4, and PS3.

    I… THINK the Revolving Crossbow was a base DW8 DLC weapon. Couldn’t reliably tell you; the only DLC weapons I got were the boots and emei piercers. Boots are fun as hell, though.

    The Revolving Crossbow was indeed DLC.
