That is a clever idea, if you can't get money for the full game, get say 20-30 dollars a lot from those who will only play a certain amount (and hope a few end up paying more then if they brought the game outright)

It's currently available only on PC but will come to console soon.

The F2P version will include:
- Free mode (with optional multiplayer), with six random selectable characters that will change daily.
- Story mode, choose any 3 characters and play through their story. (Appears to be a one-time choice of three.)

This is actually a pretty good move, imo. Between people who are skeptical and don't want to spend money, and people who fear performance issues (especially on PC), this is a good way for Koei to show off the game to people who might indeed decide to buy it after all.

:pika:


The bolded line excites me! I can try it out with Sun Ce and two others and decide then if it's worth the whole game. I wonder when it'll come to PS4!
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

Co-op is good but I don't think I'll find a PC user.

As it is free now I will give that a shot on PC. I lent my PS4 copy to a coworker as he wanted it to unlock some content in Warriors Orochi 4 :lol:

Edit: I downloaded the trial game, I don't think I can host an on line game, not sure if I can only join a game that a paid player has set up.

Second season pass. Is it a way of allowing people to buy a select amount of characters more cheaply, or as I understand it, adding more costumes, scenario's and so on?

Hoping to start DW9 trial game with the three free story modes today, I'm thinking leftmost character in "starts phase 1" of Wei, Wu then Shu, Chinese audio. Any advice?

If you want the most bang for your lack of buck play as Cao Cao, Sun Quan and then Liu Bei.

They will have the longest story lines for their factions starting in chapter 1. (Edit, Sun Quan starts in chapter 4 I believe)

However the first few chapters will be practically identical for characters. Things only start getting faction driven in chapter 3. So you might want to skip Liu Bei as he will have a very similar experience to Cao Cao in the first few chapters besides some unique dialog.

So if you do Wei Chapter 1, perhaps pick Zhao Yun or Zhuge Liang for Shu as you will be able to see more unique things.

Thanks, I was going to go for all three leaders but a change up seems a good idea. Unfortunately It would seem the trial tickets only allow me to do the intro to the Turbans. Not the Turbans level but the first bit. If that is meant to help teasingly entice people to buy, I think they should have done the whole Turban level

Huh, I haven't actually played the free trial yet so didn't know that. I hope that they allow you to play through a decent amount of the game rather then just a tiny bit.

You get option to do tutorial, opening cutscene and in essence a "meet types of shops, one or two convo's and a little battle around starting point" and that's it
