The Empires series is one derivation of the Warriors series. Its a fusion of country conquering with action packed large scale battles reminiscent of the Warriors series. In each release of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors, you control the basic foot soldiers as well as the commanders who have their own specific graphics. One of the highlights is that the story is not set in place, you can conquer kingdoms as you see fit with the commanders of your choosing.
The battles in Samurai Warriors 4: Empires involve pushing the position of your frontline and gaining control as you aim for the enemy’s headquarters. Each location is tied to a supply line, so the more you secure, the more advantageously you’ll be able to fight. Also, like seen on the right, the option to designate ally troops to specific objectives is brought back as well, adding to the sensation of a joint struggle!
Samurai Warriors 4: Empires is due out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita on September 3 in Japan.
