The new sci-fi fantasy RPG is coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Steam in 2022!
Developed by tri-Ace, STAR OCEAN THE DIVINE FORCE is a thrilling new adventure that fuses science fiction and fantasy. Although itís the sixth mainline entry in the STAR OCEAN series, THE DIVINE FORCE will be an excellent starting point for newcomers as it tells a completely original story with brand-new characters.
For existing fans, the game brings back the popular dual protagonist system from STAR OCEAN: The Second Story and puts you in the shoes of two very different protagonists: Raymond and Laeticia.
Raymond is from an advanced civilization, and the captain of the space trading ship Ydas. Laeticia, meanwhile, is a princess-knight from a kingdom on an underdeveloped planet. When they meet, the fate of the galaxy will change forever.
Regardless of which protagonist you go with, youíll have amazing freedom over how you explore this galactically imaginative world. Characters have amazing mobility around areas - everything you see is there to be exploredÖ from the ground and the air.
Not only can the characters move in 360 degrees on the ground, they can also fly up into the air, too! See a cliff or rockface that looks interesting in the distance? You can fly over there and poke around. Want to get up to the rooftops for a better look at the city? Up you go!
From towering mountains, to dark, vast valleys and even imposing castles, thereís an incredible variety of places to exploreÖ but not all of them will be safe... Sooner or later, youíll encounter enemies and that means itís time to battle. Fortunately, the sense of nimbleness extends into the combat system, too!
The heroes can take down hordes of enemies with super high-speed movement attacks. For example, you have a skill that lets you vanish for a moment in front of enemiesí eyes or take out a foe in a single hit.
Combat flows seamlessly into exploration too - there are no random battles, and all enemies are present on the field. If you see danger ahead, itís up to you how and when you engage them. Do you rush in head-on or swoop down from the sky?
Itís the fastest, most impactful action the series has ever had, and we canít wait for you to try it for yourselves!
Not gonna lie this actually looks pretty damn good, which is saying a lot when the last entry was actual garbage.
