Based on the renowned novel, The Heroic Legend of Arslan, this tactical action epic is keeping close to the spirit of the rebooted anime and manga version illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, creator of Fullmetal Alchemist. As such, in addition to the Warriors series’ traditional thrilling action of one versus thousand, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend incorporates a new type of action – the Mardan Rush. Designed to match the setting of ‘The Heroic Legend of Arslan’, this action allows players to wipe out large numbers of enemies by taking control of special ‘Rush’ units (mounted, ranged, or melee) and dealing devastating damage.
In addition to controlling army units, the game also features new battle moves for individual characters, like the Chain Strike. As the story progresses, playable characters will gain access to different weapon types. Chain Strike allows for a real time switch between available weapons while executing a power attack, which brings more variety to the action and can be used to prolong combos.
