If the gaming world needs anything right now, it?s another [i]Dynasty Warriors[/i]. Okay, that?s not an opinion I personally hold, but apparently enough people agree with such a viewpoint to warrant developer Koei to come out with another [i]Dynasty Warriors[/i] game, this time titled [i]Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires[/i]. However, it would be unwise to dismiss this next iteration in the series as another mere brawler, that is if Koei?s assertions about this edition prove to be true.
According to Koei, in [i]Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires[/i], ?the player’s ultimate goal is to conquer the 25 regions of Ancient China and build an entire Empire using cunning diplomacy and uncompromising force. Before each battle, the player will meet with the war council to decide upon military and political policies for the kingdom; then it’s time for war.? Furthermore, new to [i]Empires[/i] will be the ability for players to command their officers on the field, with orders to attack, defend, stand their ground, and along with other military commands. Players will also be able to manage their empire between battles in areas such as government and diplomacy.
[i]Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires[/i] definitely looks to be a departure from previous [i]Dynasty Warriors[/i] games, and could possibly even signal a return to Koei?s [i]Romance of the Three Kingdoms[/i] roots. We at MyGamer are definitely interested to see how [i]Empires[/i] will turn out.
