KOEI TECMO America has released key information about the upcoming Samurai Warriors 4: Empires. One of the best bits of news is that those who pre-order the game will receive a bonus item set that comes with an extra castle option (the Golden Castle), the Osaka Campaign scenario, as well as costumes for Takakage Kobayakawa and Lady Hayakawa.
Gameplay revolves around tactics. What are tactics?
"Tactics fall into two categories: basic tactics, which are deployed prior to battle, and executable tactics, which are deployed during battle. Basic tactics involve actions such as managing troop economy, blocking enemy aid, and taking action to increase troop strength prior to engagement, whereas executable tactics involve battle strategies such as charging with cavalry and capturing enemy officers."
By conquering bases through battles, players will be able to repurpose them for their own strategic use.
Samurai Warriors 4: Empires drops on March 15 for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita.
