Valkyria Chronicles 4 announces a slew of new features
The all-new Centurion will allow you to radio in for help, calling in artillery via your ship that can be used to level (quite literally) the playing field. Grenadiers, the brand-new soldier class will be a boon and a burden as you’ll need to dodge their mortar attacks whilst roaming the battlefield, whilst being able to harness their powerful attacks yourself to attack unsuspecting enemies. The new Last Stand feature will enable Claude or Riley to bring themselves back from the brink of defeat to fight another day.
All of these features are underpinned by the beautiful and painted art-style of the Canvas Engine, whilst incorporating third-person shooter design in a first for the series. Set alongside the original Valkyria Chronicles the story will focus on Squad E of the Federation on the continent of Europa. Whilst the Second Europan war is being fought between the Atlantic Federation and the Eastern Imperial Alliance, you’ll embark on a last-ditch effort to end the conflict and capture the Imperial capital as part of Operation Northern Cross.
Players can also try out the Valkyria Chronicles 4 Demo, available now as a free download on the PlayStation™Store, Microsoft Store, and Nintendo Switch™ eShop. Get a feel for the innovative tactical BLiTZ system before the full game launches on September 25. Play through the prologue and first two chapters of the game, as well as an exclusive bonus mission created for the demo. Demo save data, including items obtained, class levels, earned experience, and currency total will transfer over to the full game, so you can pick up right where you left off. Additionally, importing save data from the demo will net you an exclusive accessory for use in the full game.
