As if the burgeoning lineup of 170 characters for the upcoming Warriors Orochi 4 wasn’t enough, Koei Tecmo has announced that it has received an award from Guinness World Records for the most playable characters in a hack-and-slash fighting game. The title will be released on October 16 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS have officially recognized Warriors Orochi 4 as having the Most playable characters in a hack-and-slash videogame. The certificate was presented to the game’s producer Masaki Furusawa during a press event in Japan. The considerable achievement was accomplished by having a total of 170 playable characters from the DYNASTY and SAMURAI WARRIORS universes, giving players an astounding number of options to choose from when playing alone, or with a friend.
First announced on March 2018, Warriors Orochi 4 is the latest instalment of the one-versus-thousands crossover series, combining the popular DYNASTY WARRIORS and SAMURAI WARRIORS series. This instalment features the inaugural appearance of magic abilities, introduction of five playable gods – Zeus, Ares, Athena, Perseus and Odin – as well as the return of co-op multiplayer.
