A new title is set to be added to the Star Ocean action RPG franchise. Star Ocean The Divine Force marks the start of a new chapter in galactic history and tells a story that combines elements of fantasy and science fiction. The game is coming on October 27 to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

The game features dual protagonists, which offer players two main perspectives and gameplay experiences. There’s Raymond, who is the captain of the space trading ship known as Ydas. The second is Laeticia, a princess-knight of a kingdom located on an underdeveloped planet named Aster IV. It is fate that brings Raymond, Laeticia, and other ally characters together.

In 2019, an HD remaster of the first title in the series, Star Ocean First Departure R, was released on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
