“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 split screen co-op with a friend.
This latest fusion title features the inaugural appearance of Magic abilities, allowing characters to wield phenomenally powerful and visually impressive attacks against their most challenging foes. These new-found powers come from the gods’ most divine artifacts: 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.”
Warriors Orochi 4 will hit PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 16. Do you already have a dream team of characters planned out? If so, let us know who they are down in the comments below.
