Way of the Samurai 4 is an open-world, “sandbox” action game where every action the player takes will affect their allegiance to one of the three competing factions and shape the story. From interactive event sequences where drawing a sword or simply walking away during a conversation can have deep consequences, to numerous optional side-quests, the decision is completely up to the player. With a character that is fully customizable from their physical attributes, their clothing, to even their weapons skill set, no two samurai will ever be alike. The unique online feature allows a player to download other player characters from all over the world, who in turn will roam their game at night as an assassin that can present a formidable battle with great rewards.
