Koei Tecmo has announced a five-day weekend sale of their popular <em>Dynasty Warriors<\/em> franchise. The sale is only available for the PC versions of the games, so console players will have to wait until the holiday season to see discounts.\r\n\r\nThe <em>Dynasty Warriors<\/em> series is part of the musou or "hack-and-slash" genre created by developers and publishers Omega Force and Koei Tecmo. The series is loosely based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a historical tale of three kingdoms: Shu, Wu, and Wei during the Han Dynasty.\r\n\r\nThe games on sale include <em>Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition<\/em>, which is a revamp of the original title. It's one of the first in the series to give an in-depth perspective on the dominant forces, including Jin. Players will take control of each kingdom and learn about their goals. \r\n\r\nAfter the low reception of the previous game in the series, the development team improved upon gameplay and name pronunciations. \r\n\r\nThe <em>Dynasty Warriors 8<\/em> branded games see the most significant discounts. <em>DW8 Empires<\/em> is 75% off with a free Castle Pack DLC, and <em>DW8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition<\/em> is 70% off. This sale is the perfect time for gamers looking to add both to their collection.\r\n\r\nWhile <em>DW8<\/em> is a retelling of the <em>Romance of the Three Kingdoms<\/em> story, with some new additions like new characters and weapons, Empires takes a strategy-based approach. \r\n\r\n<em>DW8: Empires<\/em> is primarily strategy-based. Gamers can create custom characters and follow their own path instead of working with one of the major kingdoms. Players strive to conquer China one province at a time. Each battle will take users through different terrains as they work with strategists to hack-and-slash to their final goals. \r\n\r\nAll of the DLC for <em>DW8: Empires<\/em> are included in the same for up to 51% off. The content is all cosmetic, such as costumes, BGM, and wallpapers, so gamers won't miss out by only purchasing the base game.\r\n\r\n[embed]https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=kEr8MLbqd80[\/embed]\r\n\r\nThe newest game in the series, <em>Dynasty Warriors 9<\/em>, is also on sale. <em>DW9<\/em> is currently 50%, which is one of its most massive discounts since its launch in February 2018. \r\n\r\nThe game has two Season Passes available for sale, which includes the Additional Scenarios and Weapons Packs plus the Hideaway Customization pack. These passes include extra gems and materials to give players an extra boost at the beginning of the game.\r\n\r\nThe second pass contains mostly cosmetic DLC, such as extra costumes, but also offers more weapons, scenarios, and scenario costumes.\r\n\r\nThe <em>Dynasty Warriors<\/em> Steam sale lasts from October 17-21, 2019.
