To celebrate the EU launch of Warriors Orochi 4, Koei Tecmo is introducing the latest additions to their already impressive roster of playable characters; Greek and Nordic gods.
Playing a key role in the newest installment of the franchise, players can uncover the mystery surrounding their arrival in the new fused land, as well as experience the inaugural appearance of magic abilities, which will allow characters to wield phenomenally powerful and visually impressive attacks against their most challenging foes.
The mythical god Ares, son of Zeus, who is also known as the Greek God of War. Ares followed his formidable father to Orochi’s dimensional realm where he represents the violent and untamed aspect of war, in contrast to his sister Athena, who represents intelligence, military strategy and generalship.
Arrogant and prideful, Ares is highly confident in his own strength and looks down on humans for their perceived weaknesses.
The mythological goddess of wisdom and warfare. Born from the head of Zeus, she is regarded as a guardian deity of cities. She followed her father to Orochi’s world in search of Perseus who had betrayed their ranks. Athena compels awe and respect and her loyalty to her father is only matched by her strong sense of responsibility.
In battle Athena’s Aegis can be used to perform a plethora of flexible combos to clear large crowds. Some of her charge attacks will turn enemies into stone, and finishing them off in this state will reduce them to dust.
The demigod Perseus rebels against Zeus’s machinations by entering Orochi’s dimensional realm. This forces Athena herself to come and pursue him. Although he seemingly lends his assistance to the humans, he has a mischievous secret that is set to shock other gods.
Fighting with the famed weapon, Mistilteinn, it serves as a hint to his secret identity while he fights his battles in this exciting instalment.
The mythological Norse god who ruled over Asgard before the coming of Ragnarok, he is often associated with Wisdom and Magic. Legends often depict him as a one-eyed traveller wearing a cloak and hat. In the Warriors Orochi series, Odin arrives in the new dimension to seize power, resulting in a struggle between him, Zeus and the Mystics.
Working with Perseus, he sent him ahead to manipulate the human armies for his own personal desire.
The mythological god of thunder who governs over the other deities of Mount Olympus. Zeus took an interest in Orochi’s parallel world and brought the heroes back there to realize his ambitions of conquering new dimensions.
Often considered the greatest of the Olympian Gods, he is one of the most famous mythological beings. His exploits include gaining control of the sky and lightning and becoming leader of the Olympians.
