Cunning and merciless, this strategic mastermind favours the divide and conquer approach, expertly manipulating others to do his bidding.

XIAHOU DUN


Xiahou Dun is a legendary one-eyed General fiercely loyal to Cao Cao. In a battle against Lü Bu’s forces in the late 190s he was hit in the eye with a stray arrow. He proceeded to yank the arrow out, devour his own eyeball, then charge towards the enemy General, Cao Xing, killing him on the spot.

GAN NING

SUN CE

Famed for his military victories in Jiangdong that laid the foundation for the Kingdom of Wu, he’s very much earned his nickname the "Little Conqueror".

ZHOU YU


Meet Zhou Yu, Wu's finest strategist, loyal officer of the Sun family, and close friend to both Sun Ce and Sun Quan. Calm and intelligent, Zhou Yu is a wise military tactician who sees through most of his enemies' ploys.

LIU BEI


Humble, virtuous and kind, Liu Bei is an inspiring presence, forging unshakeable bonds with those who follow him...

GUAN YU

HAN SUI


Han Sui is a military general and Ma Teng’s sworn brother. Although he appears to be a minor warlord, he prefers to stay behind the scenes and place someone else in the position of leadership while holding the real power himself.

MA CHAO


Ma Chao is the son and heir of the warlord Ma Teng. He’s an accomplished warrior known for his aggression and bravery on the battlefield. He’s also earned the nickname Ma Chao the Splendid due to his magnificent armour.

YUAN SHAO


As the Han’s loyal defender, Yuan Shao stormed Luoyang to liberate the emperor and personally slaughtered the treacherous eunuchs. He rose to power due to his outstanding reputation, wealth, and prestige. Though he lacks in substance, his ostentatious style is beyond doubt.

ZHENG JIANG

TAISHI CI


A skilled archer and honest above all else, Taishi Ci always honours his word. Loyal to the end, he will do all that he can to serve his masters well, even if that means endangering his own life. There is no man more trustworthy than the virtuous Taishi Ci.

YUAN SHU


Yuan Shu believes that only he has the means - and the right - to wield true power. The prestigious name of Yuan weighs heavily upon his shoulders, as does the blustering of his half-brother Yuan Shao. Only by demonstrating his legitimacy can he prove his right to rule.

ZHAO YUN


Zhao Yun has a steadfast sense of moral duty and will always do what he thinks is right, no matter how dangerous. As a charismatic and skilled warrior, Zhao Yun fights for justice, and will follow none but the most righteous of warlords.

XU HUANG


A model of integrity, Xu Huang is both a great warrior and an astute general, having defeated numerous legendary generals in his time under Cao Cao. Extremely respectful, Xu Huang never fails to be courteous to friends and enemies alike.

SIMA YI


Blessed with great intelligence from a young age, Sima Yi is one of China’s greatest strategists. Loyal only to himself, he schemes and plots to outwit Zhuge Liang and pave the way for his own family to usurp the throne and establish a new dynasty.

LIU ZHANG


The youngest son of Liu Yan, Liu Zhang ruled over the Yi Province. While he maintained peace in his realm, some view him to be a foolish and incapable ruler. He is easily taken in by tricks and deception, and will choose the wellbeing of his subjects over his own ambition.

TAO QIAN


Tao Qian is a diligent and sincere governor with an eye for those who have the true interests of the people at heart. Having thwarted an invasion from Cao Cao with help from Liu Bei, the two began a friendship that would influence Liu Bei’s own style of governance.

    And why is the last name of Liu Biao written with the traditional character and that of Liu Bei with the simplified? It's strange.

    It's wrong to use traditional and simplified characters in the same context. Either one or the other.

    This is interesting, but there are a ton more heroic figures in the world. I wonder how many Warlords will be considered 'legendary' or interesting enough to make them a bit more unique. And some of these are lesser 'Leaders' of factions we cannot play.

    No posters yet for Dong Zhuo or Lu Bu either. I know we dont start as them but we should be able to catpture them.

    I'm almost positive we will be. Not giving them legendary traits would be horribly remiss.

    I just hope they don't forget Huang Gai. :<

    I think they will leave quite a few for DLC/FC or maybe fix some to become 'legendary' at later dates. Like a 'Legendary Pack' or something.

    This can't be all of them.

    Where's Zhang Liao? We've seen that he has a unique model/portrait.

    Also, as DLC, you better make Pang De unique and he better look almost like how he does in Dynasty Warriors or I will be FUMING! *huff puff*
  • YaafmYaafm Posts: 1,275Registered Users
    Ok, you revealed Dong Zhou's. Now give us the posters for him and his generals!

    So looking through the posters again, some of the Commander Warlords got unique abilitys compared to others. Yuan Shao, Cao Cao, Lui Bei, all have unique in combat buffs it looks like. They are the more combative on the field generals so I guess it makes some sense.

    Yuan Shu, Liu Biao, Sun Quan, and Liu Zhang all have the exact same 3 abilitys, which OK, they are more administrative guys. But since the posters are only showing Combat stuff, what makes them better in game? Im a little worried about balance with the 2 starting warlord Yuan Shu and Liu Biao. What gives them equal footing as a Warlord with the ones that get in combat abilitys?

    Yes, I know, no one was really up to the Level of Cao Cao in history, but this has been gamified so was wondering what makes at least the 3 on equal footing, not to worried about non-playable Liu Zhang (he didnt fit on the page)

    Unfortunently, they did forget about Huang Gai... Hopefully they will release a DLC of other legendary characters.





    It would be pretty cool if they can make Huang Gai look like the one in Tiger Knight.
