View Full Version : Some questions about DW7, DW7:XL and DW7:E

I've been thinking of getting some DW games for quite a while now, but never gotten around to it, and just recently I found Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends quite cheap and bought it, and as it is my first DW game of the regular DW series (have some of the anime spin-offs though), I'm not to knowledgeable about the games, so I thought I'd ask some questions here. So here goes:

Because I for some reason believed XL to be DW7 + extras or something, i bought it, but now when playing I've found out that i need the original DW7 to access some parts of the game, so here's my questions: Is Xtreme Legends more or less just an expansion to DW7? Or is the stuff that requires DW7 just some small extras in XL? Well I guess the pure essence of my question is, should i just get DW7 too?

Also I guess I'll ask if DW7 Empires is the same (requiring DW7 or not)?

XL is mostly just an expansion for the basic game with the same number, yes. Empires, on the other hand, is a stand-alone game (though sometimes having saves for the others let you unlock things early or get a bonus character or something. not sure if they still do that.)
