The setting for Dynasty Warriors 6 (DW6) is China in the third century. DW6 has been developed from the ground up for 360 and PS3 by Omega Force and immerses gamers in a cinematic experience, complete with a game engine that delivers some of the most action-packed sequences in the Dynasty Warriors series seen so far. Famous DW characters have been completely revamped with new weapons and fighting techniques have been motion-captured with the help of today's leading stuntmen and women in Asia. The game's new 'Renbu' attack system and game controls enables players to execute super-fast combos and some of the most spectacular fighting moves. Human players can use the game's detailed landscape to elude the thousands of soldiers swarming the battlefield, or you can arrange your warriors and go on the attack. Adaptable enemy AI however, can devise attacking and defensive tactics, and will hit back with packs of fierce hunting dogs and patrol boats.
DW6 is a time of heroes, their lives intertwining in one grand epic poem depicting the era of the Three Kingdoms of Wei, Wu and Shu. These heroes take to the battlefield in an effort to make their mark in a world of chaos, each hoping that they will be the victor.
