Dynasty Warriors 8: Complete Edition strikes Steam on May 13

PC-only gamers haven't been able to enjoy Dynasty Warrior 8's hectic, definitely-true-to-history battles between ancient Chinese kingdoms, but Tecmo Koei is about to fix that. The publisher is bringing Omega Force's DW8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition to Steam on May 13 in North America and Europe.

The Complete Edition bundles the base game of DW8 with its Xtreme Legends expansion, which adds new characters, story episodes, weapons and enhancements to the Ambition, Challenge and Free modes.

Complete Edition's minimum requirements call for at least Windows Vista, with 512 MB of RAM, a VRAM 256MB video card and an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.4 GHz (or Intel Core i7 860) rounding out base requirements. Support for gamepads will also be present, as will be support for DirectX 9.0c.
