Dynasty Warriors 8 CE Overview
This is just a brief overview of what is avaiable in Dynasty Warriors 8 CE and what was added with the DW 8 Xtreme Legends expansion. If you want more details about the game I would suggest checking out the official DW8 or DW8 XL website.

Note: Complete Edition = Dynasty Warriors 8 + DW 8 Xtreme Legends

Price: $50 (NA)

  • Follow the Story of each kingdom: Wei, Wu, Shu, Jin, and with Xtreme Legends the storyline of Lubu's forces.
  • Each scenario lets you pick from 4 characters to play and objectives can change based on the character chosen.
  • The storyline included the historical paths, and hypothetical paths which unlock when you complete all of the optional objectives of a scenario.

Considering the fact that we're dealing with a japanese developer here, hopes are not that high that the PC version will be any good.

Don't forget the increased level cap per character. It was 50 in DW8, but in XL it's 99.

Does the game have option to create character like the old one?

It was 99 in Dynasty warriors 8 and 150 in Xtreme legends.

I don't believe they have CAW's in this one. Unless i've missed it on the offical websites that feature wasn't implemented this game.

As for this sudden announcement/surprise...I am super happy. I hope this does well so they think about porting other games to the PC. Personally i'd like to play another Samurai Warriors game.

Does it matter if i play it in order? Or do i have to play DW8 then XL?

It's not so much "in order" as... XL adds stories for another faction, and it adds a second track of "alternate/ what-if" stages, and it adds a second goal to the Ambition mode, plus a bunch of characters and I think a couple of weapons. In practice you'll probably be jumping between XL and DW8 content without noticing it.
