About DYNASTY WARRIORS: STRIKEFORCE
The multi-million selling DYNASTY WARRIORS series has long been renowned for pitting a lone warrior against an army of thousands. Now for the first time up to four players can team up to create a strikeforce of legendary warriors and head into battle against cunning enemies and massive bosses.
End of level bosses await intrepid heroes with a multitude of guises and deadly attacks whilst the enemies spread throughout each level now possess much greater levels of intelligence and more powerful attacks. So now more than ever it’s imperative that players work together as a team and find ways to overcome the challenges and obstacles that stand between them and victory. Only through co-ordinated attacks can the team conquer the massive fortresses and huge beasts that populate each deadly level.
Unleashing your character’s FURY transformation now bestows the player with a range of attacks and abilities far more powerful and spectacular looking than a standard attack. For the first time ever players can take to the skies and face off against their foes in spectacular aerial combat. By cleverly utilizing the numerous new powers ups and abilities players can benefit from a tantalizing variety of new moves and attacks including the ability to fly, lightning fast speed and greater healing powers.
With a multitude of ways to improve your character’s ability, specialise in particular areas, buy items in the towns and share items among friends, DYNASTY WARRIORS: STRIKEFORCE gives players the opportunity to shape their character in whatever way they so desire. For the first time ever in a Warriors game the player can now select a secondary weapon for any character before they go into battle. Truly formidable combinations of legendary warrior and mighty weapons are now a reality.
