An adventure all your own
Begin your journey as one of eight travellers, each with their own origin, talents and goals. Where will your tale begin? Who will you team up with? And where will you go next? Go it alone, or delve into each of the seven other travellers’ independent stories as you journey onwards.
Each hero brings a different tale to be told, new perspectives on the game’s turn-based combat, and special abilities to use out in the field. Experiment with these unique skills to fell foes, complete side quests, and influence the world around you.
The thrill of battle
Put your party’s skills to the test with an accessible yet deep combat system. Draw upon each traveller’s Talents to gain an edge in battle, then break through enemy lines using the unique Boost system. Up to four of your travellers can fight side-by-side in your party, so expect some intense fights ahead!
