EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexon in conjunction with XPEC Entertainment and Koei Tecmo Games have released Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed, the latest chapter in the iconic combat action series, for mobile devices worldwide. Featuring 48 legendary characters from the classic console series, players will set out on a quest to unite the three kingdoms by using powerful ancient weapons to conquer massive hordes of unrelenting foes on the battlefield. Mobile warriors can also reign supreme by challenging each other in a variety of multiplayer modes including cooperative play and real-time PvP.
“The legendary characters, epic battles, and powerful melee weapons that players love from the Dynasty Warriors series have been transported to mobile devices in Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed,” said Akihiro Suzuki, Executive Officer of Koei Tecmo Games and producer of the Dynasty Warriors series. “XPEC has captured the adrenaline-pumping spectacle of the console games, and that frenetic combat action is now available on the go.”
Players will unleash the power of fan-favorite Dynasty Warriors characters on the battlefield, including Lu Bu, Guan Yu, Xiahou Dun and Zhao Yun. Each warrior wields the ancient armor and larger-than-life weapons of their ancestors, with combat driven by unstoppable whirling blades, two-handed swords, polearms, daggers, spears, axes, glaives, scythes and more. Players will mow through the battlefield and smite entire armies with one fell swoop, executing combos, chaining together attacks and charging up to unleash devastating, screen-clearing attacks like the infamous Musou Rage. In order to fulfill their destiny and rise victorious against these unyielding hordes of enemies, players must unite the three kingdoms by promoting generals, building armies and unlocking additional characters. The detailed, stylized graphics keep the central focus on the action, running smoothly even as dozens of enemy units fill the screen.
Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed features many ways to play, including:
- Conquest Mode - Challenging campaign for one or multiple players
- Skirmish - Battle in real-time with up to four players
- Boss Fights - Bypass the underlings and skip straight to the bosses, alone or in co-op
- Raid - Steal fragments from opponents in this multiplayer mode
- War Supply - Strategically occupy mines and acquire resources in competitive multiplayer
“Ever since the launch of Dynasty Warriors 2 back in 2000, players have been drawn to the series’ over-the-top action gameplay,” said Lawrence Koh, General Manager, Nexon M. “Nexon is honored to bring the devastating combat of Dynasty Warriors to mobile devices and share the experience of becoming a legendary warrior with longtime fans and a brand new audience of players around the world.”
