"Dynasty Warriors 9" just released its long list of schedule for downloadable contents (DLCs), some of which include new characters for the story and progression of the game.

Koei Tecmo has published a detailed DLC schedule for "Dynasty Warriors 9," which has been released worldwide last month. The first that will be released in April is called Hideaway Customization Pack, which includes five new hideaway exteriors, ten new furniture pieces and five new trial missions that can be played repeatedly for practice and experience.

May will see the release of the Additional Weapon Pack, which includes three new weapon types with new actions as well as three new models of high-level weapons. This DLC looks to be more fitting for players who have already reached the endgame of "Dynasty Warriors 9" and are just looking for new and more powerful weapons.

Last but not the least is the Additional Scenario Pack that will add new characters to the game and will be released sometime in summer of this year. These new characters are unique from the ones in the base game and are named Xiahou Ji, Dong Bai, Hua Xiong and Yuan Shu. All of them will be playable and will also have their own action gameplay, scenarios and events. It is worth noting that these four were previously non-player characters (NPCs) and were already part of the game before.

All three DLCs will be available for purchase separately once they have been released on their expected schedules but those who own the Season Pass will able to get all for free. The three new DLCs will then be added to the already vast open-world of "Dynasty Warriors 9," giving players a lot more to do in-game aside from conquest and tackling hordes of enemy units.

All the said DLCs will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 (PS4) and the PC.
