It’s not every day you hear about video games getting a spot in the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, but today, that has changed as Warriors Orochi 4 from Koei Tecmo and Omega Force is headed to the world records for an astonishing reason.
As the technology that powers video games changes, it adapts to the hardware that it’s utilizing, and evolves to become something better than its prior self; you have to consider what is and is not possible in our current day in age. For some games, it’s about offering some of the most stunning visuals possible.
Meanwhile, other games approach games different such as amazing stories, artistic set pieces or even their scores, but today, that’s not exactly why Omega Forces Warriors Orochi 4 has been recognized by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS. In recognition of one of the most ambitious rosters to date, Omega Force and Koei Tecmo have bared witness to Warriors Orochi 4 having been inducted into the world records for the largest roster in video game history.
With 170 playable characters to choose from ranging from the DYNASTY and SAMURAI WARRIORS universes, the game will leave players with plenty of options to choose from whether they play alone or online with a friend. Warriors Orochi 4 was first announced in March of 2018 and will be the latest installment in the one-versus-thousands crossover series.
The latest title will introduce new abilities, returning appearances, and the introduction of five Gods to pay such as Zeus, Ares, Athena, Perseus and Odin alongside the return of co-op play. As part of the original announcement, Koei Tecmo confirmed the games Oct. 16, 2018, release date for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
