Koei Tecmo Europe has confirmed an upcoming release of an Empires version for successful tactical action title Samurai Warriors 4.
Empires provides an alternative look on the events depicted in Samurai Warriors 4, using the historical landscape as a setting for an exciting strategy-focused game. Players have the opportunity to create their own character and set up a game that starts them off in the lower ranks of the army and allows them to gradually progress to rule the entire land through their conquests.
Samurai Warriors 4 Empires marks the return of the ‘Empires’ brand in the Samurai Warriors universe after a nine year gap. Since the 2007 release of Samurai Warriors 2 Empires for the PlayStation 2, Samurai Warriors has grown to become one of the most successful and acclaimed titles in the Warriors universe. This revamped version of the fan-favourite installment features much improved battle gameplay and an expanded intuitive governing system, and explores the effects of building in-depth relationships and alliances.
Samurai Warriors 4 Empires is currently in development for physical release on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and digital on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation Vita handheld system, and is slated for release on 11th March 2016.
