Dynasty Warriors 7 Features
Story Mode is kingdom-based, and will focus on the 4 kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and Jin
The Other force does not have a story mode, but players will be able to use the Other characters in Chronicle Mode
You will be playing as different characters as you choose other stages, thus seeing the overall kingdom stories from different character perspectives. The character for that stage will be fixed
For some important large battles, it will be split into two parts, so you can have two character perspectives (ex: Shu’s Chang Ban, 1st Part: Zhao Yun, 2nd Part: Zhang Fei)
The story events will be seamlessly incorporated into gameplay, similar to God of War 3
To further reflect the seamlessness above, the usual pre-battle briefing menu is no longer here. Instead, the player stands inside a friendly fortress where they can buy new weapons and interact with other characters for storyline insight before beginning the battle
There will be many interactions between characters that will make the storyline even deeper
Each kingdom will have around 15 to 25 stages until their endings
Story Mode might be one-player only
This seems to be an individual, free-roam-China and create-your-own-destiny story mode
In-between battles, you can visit cities to buy and upgrade weapons
You can also interact with other unique characters, and depending on how you interact, you can unlock more playable characters from this mode
When you join a faction you will be able to play in their specific stages
There are also stages that are based on ROTK
Chronicle Mode will have both Online and Offline (splitscreen) Co-op
Coming March 2011 for Xbox 360 & PS3
