Square Enix revealed today that Tactics Ogre: Reborn will hit PC and consoles (PlayStation 4/5 and Nintendo Switch) on November 11th. Preorders are now live, with the base edition costing US$49.99 or your regional equivalent, and the Digital Premium edition adding 10 dollars or the equivalent in your currency on top of that.
This re-imagined edition of the fan favorite tactical RPG comes with an updated battle system and a number of cosmetic improvements, such as high-definition graphics and a bevy of sound improvements, including recreated sound effects, re-recorded live background music (composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto) and of course, fully voiced cutscenes, both in English and Japanese.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn is set in The Valerian Isles, jewels of the Obero Sea. Following many years of conflict, there finally rose a man to put an end to this: Dorgalua Oberyth. Known as the “Dynast-King,” he brought peace and prosperity to Valeria for half a century. After his death, a civil war erupts and throws the isles of Valeria into a bloody struggle for power between three warring factions. In Tactics Ogre: Reborn, players follow the story of a young man, Denam Pavel, caught in the center of the bloodshed. Although he seeks a path of freedom and justice, players will soon discover that even the noblest of goals requires impossibly difficult decisions to be made.
Reborn and deeper than ever, this classic tactical role-playing adventure enables players to fully immerse themselves in the world and intrigue of Tactics Ogre. In Tactics Ogre: Reborn, players will take control of a team of units on the battlefield and utilize the turn-based combat system to act strategically and gain the upper hand over their enemy. As players progress, they can recruit additional party members, experiment with various classes, weapons, magic and abilities, and make key decisions at several instances in the story that will ultimately impact how events unfold.
