Koei Tecmo have announced that the demo for the upcoming tactical action game Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires is out right now.

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires is a game that introduces new strategic war elements to the series. You’ll get to lead your armies on a quest to take over ancient China through a series of battles, and as you may expect, there will be plenty of hack and slash action on the battlefield (that’s what the series are well-known for, after all).

You’re also getting new castle sieges where you’ll be able to play as both invading and defense forces. You can check out all of this (and more) in the demo. It includes a full tutorial that will help adapt you to the new mechanics. Last but not least, you’ll also be able to check out the game’s Edit Mode in order to customize your officers as you like. And the best thing is - all characters that you create can be transferred to the full game as soon as it is released.

The Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo is available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. The full game will be available on the PC and Google Stadia too starting from February 15.
