Game is giving me DW6-2 feelings. Part of the minority that found alot of enjoyment in DW6, despite those dang cloned weapons. 6 Empires was great tho.

Any characters that have special unlock requirements? I read Wen Yang had to be unlocked by using Zhong Hui or Deng Ai only for example.

Only Wen Yang. The rest can be unlocked by just simply completing the chapter.

Wen Yang is the only one, since Zhong Hui and Deng Ai's stories are the only ones that go all the way to the end of chapter 13

Alright, spent the last two days spending most of my free time dedicated to the game, working on completing stories and unlocking characters.

I'm really feeling that making the game open-world was just a really bad idea. Now the major battles of the franchise feel like a series of unremarkable skirmishes, it robbed the fights of their unique aesthetics (YTR occurring in a desert, Tong Gate in rain, etc.) and instead reduces them to mostly taking place in the same-ish looking barren fields and almost identical castles, as well as a general hassle to navigate when you're just trying to advance the plot.

The new combat system, while not entirely my cup of tea (I feel that I had more control of my character with the old Charge system), can definitely be refined and upgraded. But I really hope the open world gets dropped in the near future. Bring us back to enclosed battlefields, but not the corridors of DW8.

Also, last character I did a playthrough of was Xin Xianying. I found it a bit funny that...
[+] Spoiler

She really barely does anything in her story. She starts at chapter 6, and spends 6-10 just awkwardly standing in the group but never saying anything. It isn't until chapter 11, her final chapter, that she really starts doing things and interjecting her voice into discussions. Until chapter 11 she's just... there, basically serving as an extra Wei officer (despite officially being Jin) and nothing else.

Basically she was a stand in for her dad... and then her story ended when it should begin. Weird!

How come bei ping isn't in game
And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?

Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.
