With the inclusion of characters from both the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises, Warriors Orochi 4 has a grand total of 170 playable characters. Unlike other games in the series or genre, the game is giving players a monumental number of options to choose from. This includes players who play alone or together with a friend.
