Tecmo Koei Europe have recently announced that both their release of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends on the PlayStation 3 and even fancier release of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Vita will be available simultaneously across PAL regions from the 4th April 2014. This will be the very first installment in the Omega Force’s long running “Warriors” franchise to enter the latest generation of video game consoles. Unfortunately for Microsoft gamers, there are no confirmed plans for an Xbox360 or Xbox One launch.
Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends is a stand-alone expansion of Dynasty Warriors 8, which was released in July 2013. It will include new episodes that add to the story of the three kingdoms the game revolves around, focusing on the exploits of the mightiest of warriors, Lu Bu. Additionally DW8XL will see the introduction of 5 new characters, giving players the option to choose between 82 warriors in total.
Xtreme Legends will also feature multiple hypothetical scenarios that alter the plotlines of various episodes throughout the ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms story’, an expanded Ambition Mode and the popular Challenge Mode. The Free Mode has also been significantly enhanced, featuring among other things, the Xtreme Legends ‘Ultimate’ difficulty level.
The complete edition on the other hands will include both Dynasty Warriors 8 and Xtreme Legends in a single collection, giving newcomers the opportunity to go through both titles.
