CSM - Dynasty Warriors 8 is an epic adventure that follows a number of heroic characters, each of whom are fighting to gain control over ancient China. Similar to past games in Koei's Dynasty Warriors series, the game has a main story that lets you assume the role of some famous figures of the time -- fighting for the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu, and Jin -- but this new disc also houses a number of "What if?" scenarios, including some fictional accounts of historical, political, and military might in the region. This includes branching storylines, multiple endings, and more than 70 playable characters in all -- including many fan favorites from previous games. The game also supports cooperative (co-op) multiplayer, online leaderboards, and achievements/trophies for extra clout in the Dynasty Warriors community.
