There have been a number of great-looking RPG floating through the old GN inbox over the past couple of weeks, but Edge of Eternity looks like something special. Developed by Midgard Studio after a highly successful Kickstarter, Edge of Eternity has been part of the Steam Early Access program since December 2018. On June 8th, the game is graduating to full release.
The full launch will add 20 hours of gameplay to the Early Access version, allowing players to experience the full story for the first time. Right now, you can pick up the game on Steam for 33% off, bringing the price to an extremely reasonable $16.74 (the sale ends on April 13). The game has an "Extremely Positive" rating on Steam with over 1600 review, so people seem to dig it.
Some features that I glommed off of a recent press release:
An enthralling JRPG adventure where your choices matter: Discover a grand tale of hope and sacrifice, filled with plot twists and heart-wrenching moments. Solve quests in multiple ways, make your own choices and face their consequences.
A gorgeous world to discover: Journey through Heryon’s unique and ethereal environments, and unearth its most ancient secrets.
A stunning soundtrack from the composer of Chrono Trigger & Xenoblade Chronicles: Heryon is brought to life by a sublime soundtrack from industry legend and composer of Chrono Trigger & Xenoblade Chronicles, Yasunori Mitsuda.
A Deep & Strategic Combat System: Outwit your enemies in epic turn-based tactical combat: use the environment to lure them into devious traps, outsmart and outflank them to inflict massive damage. Craft your gear and inset it with powerful crystals to unlock unique combinations of skills and power-ups.
A Cast of Charismatic Characters: Meet a cast of larger-than-life companions, each with their own unique personalities and attributes. Discover their dreams, flaws, hopes and torments as you experience and share many special moments together.
Edge Of Eternity was also announced for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S today. It’ll arrive on the next-gen consoles alongside the PS4, Xbox One and Game Pass versions, in Q4 2021.
