i just found a awesome piece on a dutch games website some off you may have heard about it but still i thought i ought to tell you guys.
here is the link to the dutch website
here is a short rough translation.
for those who thought koei was going to stop with there dynasty warriors series are totally wrong.
omega force is working around the clock to bring players in japan (hopefully in europe and amerika to) on march 18 dynasty warriors 4 empires with 2 new game modes.
soha mode will go back to its roots of the rtk era this mode will contain a map with different zones and the zones will change when you advance in the game the idea is that your influence on the game and surroundings becomes greater as you advance in the game.
you will be able to device a strategie that suits the surroundings best you will also be able to position the generals in your army in differend zones off the map this way you will make more money wich lets you make a new weapon so no more upgrading weapons by exp points at least in soha mode you will be able to order a black smith to make your weapon awesome he.
your bonds politics and strategies will affect the game in many ways because you form an alliance with the generals in your army this means that during a battle they can decide to switch sides during and betray you.
you will also be able to follow the historicall story or a completely differend one also you will be able to use your own created general in soha mode.
the second mode kyoto mode will let you play with your 2 player buddy and the goal is to slaughter as many enemies as possible .
hope you find this info as exciting as i do
