Release Date Trailer
Which version will you choose?
Star Ocean The Divine Force will be available as a physical and digital Standard edition across all platforms. There is also a Digital Deluxe Edition which will be available across all platforms.
Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition will get their hands on a beautiful soundtrack composed for Star Ocean The Divine Force, as well as in-game items which include the Armour pack, Accessory pack, and Weapons pack.
Customers who early purchase any physical or digital edition of Star Ocean The Divine Force will receive a mini game pawn pack*.
Customers who pre-order either the Digital Standard Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition will also receive an in-game item weapon pack for the protagonists, the “Greatsword” for Raymond, “Lionheart’s Blutgang”, and the “Dual blades” for Laeticia, “Flashing Naglering.”
Dual protagonists give differing perspectives
The game features dual protagonists, who 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 the underdeveloped planet, Aster IV. 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).
Fingers crossed this new Star Ocean title will rekindle some of the quality of it’s predecessors after the disappointing and confusingly named Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
If they can recapture some of the enjoyment of titles like Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, this could be a sleeper hit for JRPG fans.
