We know in Dynasty Warriors 7, you can equip 2 weapons for your character in the battlefield, the seamless gameplay, Story Mode (Shu, Wei, Wu, Jin), Conquest Mode, the 3D technology and etc. Apart from all of that, today I’d like to talk about the siege weapons which will be used in some special battles, first time ever in Dynasty Warriors series. Yes, you can use them to destroy gates or to attack the enemies.
In some battlefield, you’ll see siege weapons. Once you approach, you press (X) button (for the PlayStation 3) to utilize it. Some siege weapons have more attacks, juggernaut (for example) – you can move it or drive it around with your left stick (directional buttons) and execute different attacks by pressing Square / Triangle / (O) button, and of course (X) button is for you to get off, but don’t think you can drive the juggernaut for long because the enemies would come to destroy it – yes it’s destruct-able and you can’t drive it to certain area of the map.
Besides juggernaut, there are other types of siege weapons as well. You can use a ballista to fire the arrows continuously to destroy obstacles or attack the enemies, or a catapult to throw stones to break the gate and so on. It gives you more variety on what you can do in the battlefield with not just hacking and slashing. Dynasty Warriors 7 is coming to Japan on March 10 (PS3 only), North America on March 22 (PS3 and Xbox 360) and Europe on April 1 (PS3 and Xbox 360).
