Tecmo Koei has announced that the latest in their long-running series, Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, will be releasing on March 25 for PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends will also release that day for the PlayStation 3.
What’s the difference, you ask? Well, Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends is a standalone expansion for Dynasty Warriors 8, which came out on PS3 back in July of last year. Not only will it have new episodes, it will also add five new characters, bringing the total number of warriors to 82. It “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.” There have also been enhancements to the Free Mode.
The Complete Edition, on the other hand, is all of the content of the original Dynasty Warriors 8, coupled with Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends. This is fantastic news for players who want to change over from PS3 to PS4 or Vita, or who haven’t had a chance to pick the game up yet and want choices. You can also transfer your save data across all three platforms, making it easy to play your game anywhere.
Both Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition and Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends will be out on March 25 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.
