The Opening Cinematic, Screenshots, and Weapons of Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires

Koei Tecmo have been busy hyping their upcoming release of Omega Force’s Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, so there’s a lot of new material to share.

The musou was delayed a while ago. The new release dates for Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires are now February 24 in North America, and February 27 in the EU and UK. The game is available for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam).

Let’s get to it.

    I’m so happy that they’ve really stuck to each character having a unique weapon. Also, customizable mounts! FINALLY.
