'Dynasty Warriors 8' (ALL) Details Jin Kingdom Additions - Screens

Dynasty Warriors 8 follows the stories of the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and Jin through the actions of historical military and political figures of the time as they fight to gain control over the Three Kingdoms of China.

Dynasty Warriors 8 takes the much loved IP one step further, merging numerous replay elements like multi-endings and extra modes with synergies between action and game systems, making a game that people won’t want to put down.

Apart from the Story Mode, which comes with new episodes and characters and takes a deeper look at the drama that unfolds in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms story, Dynasty Warriors 8 includes all new ‘What if?’ scenarios. Breaking away from historical fact, this mode takes a look at what could have happened if famous characters had lived to fight another day. Stories branch out to different outcomes providing variety in the course and ending of the game, and giving the players the power to view an alternate version of history depending on their choices.

Dynasty Warriors 8 also boasts a vast number of new and returning playable characters, as the highly anticipated officers Yue Jin and Li Dian from the Wei Kingdom, who make their first appearance in the series, alongside more than 70 playable characters that fight to prevail in the battlefield.

Three new characters will don the light blue colours of the Jin Kingdom in the upcoming 8th instalment of fan favourite Dynasty Warriors series.

The new additions to the Jin Kingdom are Zhang Chunhua, Wen Yang and Jia Chong.

A cultured, well-educated and wise woman and mother to two fierce warriors, Sima Shi and Sima Zhao, Zhang Chunhua is known for always facing life with a smile as well as for her fierce personality.

Wen Yang is a tall, young warrior, very calm and exceedingly brave, who takes up arms to assist his father. He charges into battle head on and refuses to get side-tracked, a trait that can be both helpful (as he ignores tricks and traps) and dangerous.

The final addition to Jin is the cold, calculative strategist, Jia Chong; a fearless man of great political skill, dedicated to abolish the old order and establish a man of ability to the emperor’s throne.

Giving stronger emphasis in the stage of these epic battles and inspired by the landscape of ancient China to deliver a wide range of visual treats, Dynasty Warriors 8 will feature more than 40 completely new stages: verdant plains, desolate wastelands, sharp ravines, huge castles, and other breath-taking sites.
