The publishers at Koei Tecmo and developers at Omega Force have dropped Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition on Steam out of nowhere. The surprise drop comes with all the bells and whistles fans could ask for.
With the surprise release comes a new trailer and the announcement of several key features that look phenomenal. The story picks up after Orochi's death, where the Three Kingdoms era of China and the Sengoku period of Japan have just hashed it out in an intense battle for survival. Players believe they have finally found peace, but that peace is short-lived. The ferocious Hydra suddenly appears and obliterates almost all of the warriors in one go, only accidentally sparing three lives. Those who survived the brutal attack are sent far back in time and told to save the allies they have lost to the Hydra.
The Steam version of Warriors Orochi 3 comes with a number of features. First, it comes with a whopping total of 145 characters, players will be able to play new and old characters from both Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors.

New episodes and sub-scenarios have also been added to provide depth to the storyline. There is both a sequel story, as well as the main story "The Slaying of the Hydra". The mystery of the parallel world is also revealed within the prequel story that is available, where players will begin to understand Orochi's upbringing. The sub-scenarios that are included provide players with hypothetical battles and battles told from several different perspectives which gives even more depth to the original storyline.
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition also features a "Gauntlet Mode", which allows players to create their own party of up to five people where they can band together to complete some intense battles. Alongside this new mode comes two others, "Duel Mode" and "Musou Battlefields".
