In Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires the player must command the armies of the kingdom, with the ultimate goal to conquer the 25 regions of Ancient China. Koei has chosen Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires to make the transition to the next generation because of its deeper, more strategic challenge.

"Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires on Xbox 360 will be the most visually astounding game in the hugely popular Dynasty Warriors series to date." said Will Curley, KOEI UK Sales Manager. "It will also offer Xbox 360 and PS2 gamers a much more strategically involving Dynasty Warriors experience, with tactical cunning and diplomatic maneuvering just as important as your expertise out on the battlefield."

The game will include four unlockable scenarios, two-player co-op play in both, Empire and Free modes, new items and a detailed Encyclopaedia of Ancient China. The European release of Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires on both Xbox 360 and PS2 is currently scheduled for the summer.
