Some new Dynasty Warriors 8 DLC has been dispatched and is available to download now from the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live. There’s an additional map, which fans will recognise from Dynasty Warriors 4, as well as some music tracks from Dynasty Warriors 5. New costumes offer a slightly less historically accurate wardrobe selection, while the addition of two new weapons brings some fresh destruction to the battlefield.

Details and prices of the new content as follows:
