Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition Travels Across Time to Reach Steam

Better late than never, especially with one of the best Warriors games ever made

Back in 2018, Koei Tecmo and Omega Force released Warriors Orochi 4 on consoles and PC, and it was good. Warriors Orochi 3, however, never got a PC version - until now. 10 years after the first console versions, Steam now has Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition. This new edition bundles the hack-and-slash epic with nearly all of its DLC to make a truly grand and definitive adventure - complete with split-screen co-op.

Warriors Orochi 3 is a crossover game featuring characters from both the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series. Sometime during China's Three Kingdoms period and Japan's feudal era, a gigantic, seven-headed hydra called Orochi starts attacking human settlements spread across both nations. Humanity has no chance of stopping Orochi and its army of demons on its own, so Princess Kaguya, a figure from Japanese folklore, offers her assistance. Kaguya sends the surviving heroes back in time to rescue their previously fallen comrades and amass a force sizeable enough to stand up to the Orochi.

To learn about the general game systems and mechanics, see our original Warriors Orochi 3 co-op review.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition

The Steam version of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition features:

  • 145 playable characters, including guests from Dead or Alive and Soul Calibur
  • New episodes and sub-scenarios that were not in the original Warriors Orochi 3
  • Multiple modes in addition to Story: Gauntlet Mode, Duel Mode, and Musou Battlefields
  • A huge arsenal of DLC: With scenarios, outfits, weapons, and more that have been released for other platforms, more than 500 items are included.
  • Mouse and keyboard support
  • A wide range of graphical settings

The only thing this version lacks is online co-op. 2-player split-screen co-op is still supported, thankfully. We assume that levels must first be cleared in single-player before they become playable in co-op - hopefully we can test it out soon and report back.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition costs $39.99 on Steam. The non-Definitive Editions of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate are available for $59.99 (!) on Xbox and PlayStation as well. Maybe it's time for a price drop, Koei Tecmo.
