Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition is a rather old game so it was a surprise to see the developer Koei Tecmo updating it for PS5 BC support.
Koei Tecmo has released DW8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition update 1.03 today that appears to fix an issue with the game running on the PlayStation 5 console. This is surprising because developers don’t usually update their old games to fix issues.
Here are the patch notes for the new Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition update 1.03 which is available on PS4 and PS5.

From the patch notes, this looks like a minor bug fix but it was still nice of Koei Tecmo to update the game for improved backward compatibility support on the PS5. Recently, this has happened with Joe’s Diner but it was a different case because while Dynasty Warriors 8 is playable on the PS5, there were just visual bugs due to the backward compatibility mode, while Joe’s Diner was unable to boot in the first place, and was patched to add support for the PS5.
Here is a description of the game that is available to purchase for $19.99 from the PlayStation Store.
