More On: Edge of Eternity

JRPG Edge of Eternity, developed by French indie developer Midgar Studio, has been announced for console release on Xbox and PlayStation consoles on February 10, 2022. A cloud-based version for Nintendo Switch will follow closely on February 23.

If you are getting some Final Fantasy vibes from that trailer, that's not a mistake. The studio is called "Midgar" for a reason, y'all.

I played a bit of Edge of Eternity on PC, and I found the visuals in the game to be absolutely stunning for something made by a small indie team. The opening of the game is ridiculously strong, sinking its narrative hooks into the player with little warning. I knew the game was coming to consoles, so I pressed pause on my playthrough (I wasn't reviewing the game, and I find that couch lounging is much more appropriate for RPGs than desk chair sitting). I'm excited to see that the game will soon be available on PS5, because it has the visual fidelity to really sing on that system.

Some features of Edge of Eternity (ripped from a recent press release):

  • 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.
