Today, I’ll be talking about available Modes in Dynasty Warriors 7. They are: Story Mode (known as Musou Mode in Japanese), Conquest Mode (known as Chronicle Mode in Japanese), Gallery, Encyclopedia, Options and Tutorials. Actually there’s another one, which is Continue, this is to resume the battle from your previously saved game.
In this mode, you can select a kingdom (Shu, Wei, Wu, Jin) and play through their story. You can pick your difficulty level – Beginner, Easy, Normal, Hard or Chaos. In Story Mode, you can only play it in one player, so no offline split screen or online co-op in this mode. The officer you play as is predetermined for each stage as well. I think this is for a better story telling and also for the sake of seamless play which you start it with the cutscene then the character goes straight to the battle. You can save the game while you’re playing, also you can choose previously cleared scenario to play through again with the predetermined character for that particular stage.
CONQUEST MODE (more info)
You can play various stages to take over the whole map. For this one, you can select any officer you want to play as, and change your officer any time you want. And as you proceed through the game, you can unlock the additional officers as well. You can do a split screen offline co-op and online co-op in this mode.

You play as Guan Ping and learn how to play the game. There are several missions for this one, no harm to try as I’ve learned how to use the EX attack from here.
I think the next one from me is probably the City Facilities or the Weapons analysis, will keep you updated when the time comes. At the meantime, please enjoy these new trailers for Wu and Shu which have just been released few hours ago.
I’ve also attached the battle music which I’ve found on YouTube. Shu Battle is definitely my cup of tea! Actually, they’re all good, it’s really just because I’m one of the Shu fanboys…
