'Warriors Orochi 4' (ALL) Reveals Brand-New Characters, Striking New Powers - Screens & Trailer

Experience an all-new gripping narrative in the latest installment of the one-versus-thousands Warriors Orochi action game series, and face an unfamiliar mystical threat with a new arsenal of magic.

Set in a world on the brink of chaos, heroes from across the Warring States period of Japan and the Three Kingdoms era of China successfully defeat the evil Orochi and end his reign. After overcoming their desperate struggle to save the world, our heroes return to their respective eras - or so they think. These two worlds, merged by an unknown entity, are again threatened and the heroes must find the key to restore them and return to their respective homes. As they begin to uncover the mystery surrounding their arrival in these new fused lands, their discoveries lead them to one deity: Zeus, the supreme god among gods.

Warriors Orochi 4’s gripping narrative can be experienced through the eyes of 170 characters, 165 returning from across the Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi universes – with five new characters joining the roster. The renowned one versus thousands battle action will see all new additions, with characters being able to cast powerful magic abilities to wipe out their foes; combining weaponry and magic can lead to devastating attacks which will stop enemies in their tracks.


Four new gods, each equipped with powerful mystic weaponry known as Sacred Treasures, join Warriors Orochi 4’s extensive roster; including: Perseus, Ares, Athena, and Odin. Perseus – the hero of Olympus and demigod son of Zeus – hearing news that his father is meddling in the human world, decides to rise to fight alongside them. Meanwhile, Athena – the wise and powerful goddess of wisdom – learning of Perseus’ plans descends to earth to capture him. She uses magic powers to manipulate the size of her Sacred Treasure, the shield Aegis, which she throws at her opponents to turn them to stone. At the same time, Ares – the god of war – fights passionately to fulfill his own beliefs – that the gods should dominate humanity. Wielding his twin spears to transform into a vigorous dragon, Typhon unleashes a stream of fire on those unfortunate enough to cross its path. The ruler of Asgard, Odin, also joins the fray using Gungnir, a unique spear which summons magical blades to its tip to become a powerful drill that can quickly eliminate any who stand in his way.

In addition to the four new gods, a number of pre-order bonuses for both physical and digital versions were also announced. Those who pre-order the physical version, through select retailers, will receive alternative costumes for Xu Shu, Mitsunari Ishida, Da Ji, Wang Yuanji, Wang Yi, Lady Hayakawa, Xingcai, Guo Jia, Takatora Todo, and Yoshitsugu Otani. Alternatively, if players choose to pre-order digitally on the Xbox Marketplace and Nintendo eShop, they will receive all of the previously mentioned bonuses plus two extra bonuses: an elusive unicorn and the mighty Pegasus. Digital pre-orders on the PlayStation Store will be rewarded with Pegasus alongside a special Warriors Orochi 4 theme.

Warriors Orochi 4 will be released across North America on October 16, 2018 for the PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and digitally on PC via Steam.
