Dynasty Warriors 9 is another installment of the popular series of action games with tactical features. Similarly to its predecessors, it was developed by Omega Force. The title was released on PC / Windows during the fifteenth anniversary of the series. The developers decided to celebrate that by introducing many novelties and improvements to the gameplay mechanics.

Plot

The story told in Dynasty Warriors 9 for PC / Windows is loosely based on the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, which depicts the civil war that took place in China during the second and third century. The player can choose from a variety of different characters – 83 characters known from Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires and some new ones. Among them there are warriors known from other games created by this studio, including Yellow Turban’s general Zhou Cang, who appeared in the novel by Luo Guanzhong mentioned above and in the Musou Stars game.

Mechanics

The mainstay of Dynasty Warriors 9 for PC / Windows is real-time battles with hundreds of participants. Before the battle the player can make a few tactical decisions and then he can join the battlefield where he slashes enemies side by side with the army he leads. The combat system was greatly changed compared to previous entries in the series. However, the key to eliminating hordes of enemies lies in properly using available weapons and special skills that vary depending on the controlled character. More powerful skills and attacks are unlocked by gaining experience.

Contrary to the previous installments that took place on closed, flat levels, Dynasty Warriors 9 offers a large, open world that covers a digital rendition of the whole China. The sandbox that can be freely explored contains historical cities and varied topography that enables the player to use different tactics – difference in height can provide tactical advantage for one of the armies.

Technical aspects

Dynasty Warriors 9 for PC / Windows uses the same technology as the previous entries in the series. However, the graphics engine was improved and the three-dimensional graphics are of high quality while maintaining a constant frame rate.
