The all-new Duel Mode within KOEI TECMO Europe's latest fighting title, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate
, was demonstrated in a trailer
last week. Duel Mode is just one of several offline and online combat game modes that will allow players to compete against each other or team up in the new game. Another of those "network modes" is Gauntlet, and it is brand new as well.
The publisher has now released two sets of screenshots to showcase Duel Mode and Gauntlet respectively. Each group of images is also preceded by a short description of the relevant game mode.
Duel Mode ...players can pick their favourite three warriors and battle 3 vs 3 against the system, or against another player local or online. In Duel Mode gamers can also choose up to four strategy cards – unlocked in-game through Story and Free modes- which can be used during the fight to boost the team’s abilities, heal or give a disadvantage to the opponent.
Gauntlet Mode ...players can create a party of up to five warriors and take on real time missions on an ever-changing dynamic field of battle. They will also be able to upload their team, or download another player’s party, and play alone or engage in 2 player co-op.
Developed by Omega Force, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate
is currently scheduled for release
on September 2nd in North America and September 5th in Europe.
