As with other Empires expansions, Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires brings strategic gameplay to the hack-and-slack action of the original title. Here, the goal of uniting China through battles and diplomacy.

Below is the Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires’s debut teaser:

Unlike Dynasty Warriors 9, the Empires iteration will not be open world.

The expansion game will be released in early 2021 on Steam, the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

A shame theyre dropping the open world concept. When I originally played 9 I thought it would work great for the empires variation with some extra polish and tweaks. On the other hand they clearly had no idea what to do with the open world concept in 9, so maybe its for the best.
