In Dynasty Warriors 4, players single-handedly clash with legions of enemy soldiers and experience the excitement of fighting against impossible odds. A host of new features adds greater depth to the gameplay, as well as more insight into the characters and turbulent events of the Three Kingdoms era. Battlefield environments are more detailed, expansive, and notably more interactive. New play modes and characters are introduced. The new soundtrack blends modern music with classical Asian instruments and styles. The generals that populate the screen are rich in texture and color. The introduction of siege engines combined with the return of elephant troops adds a new level of tactical action.
Based on Luo Guanzhong’s novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, This latest installment of the series takes a more open-ended approach to the narrative
in order to create a more dynamic atmosphere for the gamer. In the revamped Musou Mode players now select one of the Three Kingdoms, Wu, Shu or Wei. As the game progresses, players will unlock warriors from their chosen kingdom, and can even change characters between stages.
No two games will be the same. Using a multiple scenario system, new victory conditions will emerge and different events will occur as each battle unfolds. New AI allows enemy and allied units to react to actual battlefield conditions, rather than to a set pattern. With constantly changing scenarios and new, more reactive enemy and ally AI, Dynasty Warriors 4 presents the most realistic battlefield action yet.
