As revealed in August, Koei Tecmo and Omega Force are releasing Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate on 14th February 2020 as a standalone title and special 'Upgrade pack' for anyone who already owns the base game.

To help build excitement, the publisher and developer have now revealed a new playable character and some "dramatic" plot points that will be featured in this latest version based on the popular 1 vs. 1,000 series of hack-and-slash adventures.

Helping to uncover the truth is a mysterious new character named Jang Jian. Here's some info and screenshots:

Known as the “Genius Taoist Who Delivers Victory,” Jian descended from his mystic land to help control the turmoil in the new world. He is always calm and collected, and possesses great intuition. He goes to war with a deadly tri-point double-edged glaive, and always has his divine canine companion Xiaotian fighting by his side. A Taoist mystic, Jian is thought to be a genius obsessed with perfection, but in truth, he is simply an extremely hard-working person and exactly the type of warrior who can help bring Odin’s army to its knees.

The game also promises to offer a true story ending:

WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Ultimate delivers exciting new story elements, including side stories, to the electrifying franchise as the heroes from DYNASTY WARRIORS, SAMURAI WARRIORS, and the gods of ancient history team up to fight the powerful Odin and his army who have set out to destroy the world. Who was the mastermind inciting Odin, and how will side stories like Zhong Hui’s undercover activity as a spy come into play? The truth is finally revealed in WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Ultimate.

Yang Jian will be joined by Ryu Hayabusa, Joan of Arc, Achilles, Gaia, and Hades, which leaves one additional hero to be revealed.
