As repetitive hack and slash's based in an Asian setting go, Dynasty Warriors is probably the best around.
With a huge list of console based games being released over the past 13 years, Koei finally made the move to the PC back in 2006 for the Japanese audience, obviously through the MMO market.
After four years, Koei has finally decided to release this title for the Western market with two brand new servers for both Europe and North America; As well as a PS3 version.
According to the Aeria games website; this game will also feature:
- Vicious Head-to-Head Combat: Unleash your skills in hard-hitting 4-on-4 brawls and 12-on-12 clashes against opposing players
- Epic Online Battles: Wage war supported by massive NPC armies across several game modes, including PvP, territorial control, story-based battles and more
- Dynamic Character Growth: Fight with a broad variety of weapons and level up your warrior mid-battle – start each skirmish with basic attributes and collect power-ups from the field
- Rewrite History: Change the dominant faction of the Three Kingdoms based on players in-game performance and victories
It is currently unconfirmed whether or not the PC and PS3 versions will share servers, but it is entirely possible.
Earlier this month Aeria games had a release date for the Open beta, but has since updated the site and the release date is no where to be seen.
Beta signups have started over at Aeria Games; So what are you waiting for?
