October 30, 2014 Written by Jason Dunning

Available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 (digital-only), Xbox One, and PC (digital-only), Koei Tecmo announced today that Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires will be released on January 27, 2015 in North America and January 30, 2015 in Europe.

Allowing you to choose from 83 unique characters or a character your create, while also extending customization to horses, banners, and “normal” officers, here’s the overview for Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires:

In the returning Empire mode, players can select from one of many distinct roles which are best suited to them or to experience the epic history and its outcomes through a different methodology of warfare in replay. Whether choosing from Liu Bei, a provincial ruler forced to wander the land in search of a home or Lu Bu, an egotistical warrior who moves from one betrayal to another in search of his own glory, players are swept up in the drama of warfare.

Courageous warriors trudge through Ancient China with its vast plains, bleak wastelands, narrow ravines and immense castles as they slash through enemy lines. In Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires, warriors must fight against not only enemies but also the forces of nature as the changing seasons bring new elements to the more than 40 battlefields affected by seasons and the passing of time.

Elsewhere in Q1 2015, Koei Tecmo is bringing Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, Bladestorm: Nightmare, Toukiden Kiwami, Atelier Shallie, and Atelier Ayesha Plus.
