Announced at TGS 2020 is a new Dynasty Warriors Empires game! The previous Empires title was dubbed the 8th one in western circles, and it’s been confirmed this will be localized as the 9th. In any case, the game will be out early 2021 for the Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam. You can watch the full presentation from Koei Tecmo below:
The English website for the game can be found here. The official overview for the game is given as follows:
Combining the 1 vs. 1,000 action of DYNASTY WARRIORS with the addition of strategic elements, including unit command, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires sets players on a quest to conquer ancient China by both sword and strategy. Powerful Siege Battles enable commanders to deploy units to capture strategic points on the map like castles. Experiencing high-stakes fights at every turn, players can now take control of these central points on the battlefield through the use of fire attacks or other stratagem, siege weapons, and, at times, simply by force as commanders execute their strategies and attack enemy troops by issuing vital commands to units throughout the skirmish.
It will not be an open world title, perhaps to the relief of many. While there was no gameplay shown off at TGS, here’s some quick screenshots of what how the game looks like:
