"Dynasty Warriors Online Slashing Its Way to North America, Europe
Veteran Free-to-play Publisher Aeria Games Will Host and Produce Legendary Title
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Aug. 12, 2010 – Dynasty Warriors, one of the leading hack „n slash
franchises of all time with more than 18 million copies sold, will be available soon as a free-to play massively multiplayer online (MMO) game: Dynasty Warriors Online. Aeria Games, a
leading publisher of interactive entertainment, struck a licensing agreement with TECMO KOEI to distribute and operate Dynasty Warriors Online in North America and Europe. The first MMO version of the acclaimed franchise combines the fast-paced, epic-scale action made famous by Dynasty Warriors with intense online multiplayer gameplay. As with all of Aeria Games‟ titles, Dynasty Warriors Online will be free to play.
Dynasty Warriors Online is an action-oriented tactical combat game, focusing on frenetic
fighting and deadly showdowns against giant hordes on sprawling battlefields. Player-created
characters interact with historical generals and warriors from China‟s famous “Three Kingdoms” period. Players swear allegiances to warring factions and battle online to determine who will conquer Ancient China.
Vicious Head-to-Head Combat: Unleash your skills in hard-hitting 4-on-4 brawls and
12-on-12 clashes against opposing players
Epic Online Battles: Wage war supported by massive NPC armies across several
game modes, including PvP, territorial control, story-based battles and more
Dynamic Character Growth: Fight with a broad variety of weapons and level up your
warrior mid-battle – start each skirmish with basic attributes and collect power-ups from
the field
Rewrite History: Change the dominant faction of the Three Kingdoms based on players‟
in-game performance and victories
“Dynasty Warriors is one of the most fun, beloved and treasured video game franchises and is
among the first great gaming IPs to be offered as a free-to-play online game experience,” said
J.T. Nguyen, COO of Aeria Games. “The free-to-play Dynasty Warriors Online delivers the
experience of the popular franchise into a fresh new multiplayer setting, allowing players to both compete and cooperate in grand battles for control of the Three Kingdoms. We‟re delighted to share the game with Aeria‟s growing community of more than 13 million members.”
