DEFY YOUR LIMITS AND HARNESS MYSTICAL POWERS IN WARRIORS OROCHI 4
Fight Alongside Your Allies, Strengthen Your Bonds, and Uncover The Mystery Of A New World!
Hertfordshire, 18th September 2018 – KOEI TECMO Europe revealed further details today of the new Deification feature in Warriors Orochi 4, alongside a deeper look into the magic and support features which players can use to gain the upper-hand in battle.
The re-assembled heroes from across the DYNASTY and SAMURAI Warriors universes are faced with yet another battle; the god of gods, Zeus, has meddled with the human realm to create his own parallel world. The heroes learn that to solve this mysterious situation and return back home they must find eight Ouroboros Bracelets, but some individuals discover that these bracelets possess great power and decide to use them to their own advantage. This gripping new feature, Deification, grants the power of the gods to those who wield the bracelet. Taking on a powerful new form, those characters that perform Deification are not only able to use an unlimited amount of magic in battle but also cast unique physical and magical attacks.
In addition, all of the 170 playable characters in Warriors Orochi 4 are able to harness Sacred Treasures, enabling the heroes to perform both close-range and long-range magic attacks in battle. Combining these attacks with other party members, overcoming battles, aiding allies, and training together increases the relationships between characters and offers various benefits. Strengthening the Bonds between characters enhances their abilities when they work together and unlocks events between them – uncovering more details about them and their true motives in this parallel world.
To showcase the newly introduced features, KOEI TECMO Europe released a fresh asset batch containing an action-packed gameplay trailer, alongside images of characters in their Deification forms. Furthermore, a tease of the online functionality, which will be available at launch, was revealed – more details will be available in the coming weeks.
