Square Enix revealed today that tri-Ace is working on Star Ocean The Divine Force, a new entry in the long-running sci-fi fantasy RPG series that should arrive sometime in 2022 for PC and consoles.
Intended as a 25th anniversary celebration, The Divine Force will feature seamless action packed battles (that means no random encounters, the enemies you see in the world are the ones you’ll fight), a floating/flying mechanic that lets our heroes dive at enemies and fly around certain areas, and enhanced exploration compared to previous entries in the series.
Showcasing a diverse cast of playable characters, Star Ocean The Divine Force will tell a gripping story that seamlessly melds science fiction and fantasy elements and can be enjoyed by newcomers to the series and veterans alike. The game features dual protagonists, which offer different story perspectives and gameplay experiences: Raymond, the captain of the space trading ship, Ydas, and Laeticia, the princess-knight of a kingdom on an underdeveloped planet. Fate will bring Raymond, Laeticia, and several other ally characters together, all designed by renowned artist Akiman (Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Street Fighter series).
