Release Date Announced for Warriors Orochi 4
Koei Tecmo America has revealed the release date for Warriors Orochi 4, the latest instalment in the one-versus-thousands action game series. The game is slated to release on October 16th of this year.
It should be noted that E3 this year, the dev-team showed of a returning feature to the game: split screen co-op. Warriors Orochi 4 boasts a remarkable 170 playable characters from the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors universes - giving players an astounding number of options to choose from when playing alone or with a friend.
The newest entry into the franchise features the inaugural appearance of Magic abilities, allowing characters to wield powerful and visually impressive attacks against their most challenging foes. These new-found powers come from the gods’ most divine artefacts: the Sacred Treasures. In this distorted, merged version of their worlds, all Warriors are unexpectedly gifted with a Sacred Treasure that fuels their spell-casting attacks. Alongside their legacy moves and special attacks, they can now cast ranged and targeted spells, or even combine their powers with those of an ally for truly devastating blows.
Finally, Koei Tecmo America released a set of screens and a new trailer, offering a deeper look into the game’s first announced new character - the father of the Greek pantheon: Zeus. Wielding the mighty Keravnos, Zeus has the power to call down thunder to devastate his enemies and he seems to partner up with familiar faces from the Warriors-verse to defeat a yet-unknown foe.
