Warriors Orochi 4 Marching West in October

Warriors Orochi 4 Marching West in October

The Dynasty Warriors spin-off finally has a North American release date.

Koei Tecmo America revealed today that Warriors Orochi 4 will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 16, 2018. That's a pretty quick turnaround as the Japanese release will be on September 27.

Koei Tecmo is touting the huge character roster, with 170 playable characters from the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series. Warriors Orochi 4 will also see the return of split-screen cooperative play and an all-new feature: Magic.

"These newfound powers come from the gods' most divine artefacts: 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," explains Koei Tecmo.

Warriors Orochi 4 is also showing off its first new character, the Greek god Zeus. Zeus wields the mighty Keravnos staff, which throws lightning as Zeus swings it around. If Zeus is included, perhaps more Greek gods or other pantheons may be represented in-game. We'll see when the game comes out in October.
