Square Enix Publishing and Developer Tri-Ace for State of Play Tonight presented sci-fi action RPG Star Ocean: The Divine Force.
The events of Star Ocean: The Divine Force unfold on the distant planet Aster IV, where the main character – the captain of the merchant ship Raymond – is brought along with his colleague Chloe as a result of the wreck of their ship.
The characters are separated, but Raymond meets the local princess Letizia on Aster IV. She asks the protagonist to save her kingdom, to which he agrees in exchange for help in finding Chloe.
The story of Star Ocean: The Divine Force will be presented from the perspective of two heroes (Raymond and Letizia), but users will be able to take control of the rest of their squad.
In terms of gameplay, Star Ocean: The Divine Force will offer “High-speed combat system” without random battles, but with the ability to fly and dive at enemies from a height.
In addition, in Star Ocean: The Divine Force, the developers promise a vast world combining elements of science fiction and fantasy and “exciting plot”, which can be enjoyed by both veterans of the series and newcomers.
The release of Star Ocean: The Divine Force is expected in 2022 on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. In 2021, the Star Ocean series celebrates its 25th anniversary.
