The next Warriors title gets infused with some Greek mythology.
The next installment in the long running Warriors series, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate, is coming at the beginning of next year. It promises an enhanced version of Warriors Orochi 4 that adds new gameplay features, story and, most importantly of all, new characters to hack down the hordes with. The Orochi series has always been one the developer has used as a crossover. Ninja Gaiden‘s Ryu Hayabase has been confirmed to join the fray, but he won’t be alone, as Hades and Achilles from Greek mythology are coming with him.
Achilles is based on the version from Warriors: Legends of Troy, a 2011 titles that took the Warriors formula and applied it to Greek mythology, specifically The Illiad. Hades is a brand new face to the franchise, based on the Greek god of the underworld. Both are part of the additional five new characters thus far revealed. This puts the roster over a staggering 150 playable characters.
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC some time in 2020.
