Live As a Hero
This will be the largest Dynasty Warriors game ever. All of the characters will have their own story, and the events will be viewed from the Warrior's own perspective. In comparison to the previous sequel, Dynasty Warriors 4, there were just four main storylines for the Wu, Shu, Wei and Unaligned forces. The game's main mode, Musou mode, includes brand new stories for all of the characters including one of the newest Dynasty Warriors, Cao Pi.
Enhanced Battlefield Stronghold System
The popular "battlefield stronghold system" that appeared in DW4: Empires has been upgraded and will be included in Dynasty Warriors 5. In this system, when a force secures a stronghold the number of enemy soldiers is reduced, and the securing force gains an advantage in battle. Dynasty Warriors 5 will introduce new types of strongholds with different characteristics. The soldiers in Dynasty Warriors 5 will respond to events more intelligently. If a stronghold is about to fall to an enemy, troops will respond to the crisis and close in on the stronghold.
