With Dynasty Warriors 8 set to launch in Europe and North America next week, Tecmo Koei has released a new batch of screenshots showcasing the latest instalment in the long-running series, which promises new characters and modes, alongside redesigned stages and new scenarios.

Following the stories of the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and Jin through the actions of each dynasty's key historical military and political figures, DW8 sees you fighting for control over the Three Kingdoms of China. There'll also be alternate 'What If' takes on historical events, with branching stories and divergent endings.

There's still time to get a pre-order in on Dynasty Warriors 8, with UK retailers offering several incentives, including GAME's limited edition smartphone pouch that's otherwise unavailable outside Japan in one of four designs. Other retailers are offering a DLC pack that bundles Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Cao Cao, Zhang Fei and Guan Yu outfits from the first Dynasty Warriors.

Independent retailers meanwhile are also offering an exclusive DLC pack that introduces outfits for Zhao Yun and Sun Shangxiang from Romance of the Three Kingdoms 12 into the Dynasty Warriors universe for the first time.

Dynasty Warriors 8 is out on July 16th in North America and July 19th in Europe. You can check out some of the new screens below, and view all 22 in the gallery.

Considering they said there will be no more english va's in the future DW series and those rumours where future DW games weren't coming to the xbox any longer I will definitely be getting this day 1 to show my love. These guys are too good to us.

Not played any on this gen console, after playing every game on PS. Dian Wei, lets go kick some ass. Or Lu Bu, either will do.

Just grinded through DW7. Took 83 hours and I was bored for most of it. Doubtful I'm getting this game anytime soon.

I love the one versus all concept, but dear god was my experience with the franchise boring. My friend absolutely loved the Gundam version of the game, and it completely baffled me how.

Not my thing, but I can see there are many happy people here! Enjoy your game, folks!

@18 yeah its very much a marmite game, people either love the entire franchise and will buy anything with a warriors name on it or people hate everything about it

personally...nothing really beats killing thousands upon thousands of people with no real effort whatsoever :d
