No knowledge of prior entries in the series is needed to enjoy Empire of Angels IV. It is accessible to newcomers while providing extra layers of challenge for strategy veterans. Players will enlist the help of over a dozen heroines with multiple class trees and 22 unit types. There are also some character-exclusive advanced classes that can be unlocked via hidden sidequests and thorough exploration.
Players will join the Namar Investigative Team to patrol the land of Asgard and hopefully maintain order. Unfortunately, a plague is reducing ordinary, sensible people into mindless violence. As a shining orb falls from the sky before her, Valkyrie Kingdom’s legion captain, Niya, finds everything she thought she knew about Asgard, its history, and the fragile peace, now thrown into doubt. As a result, she soon finds herself on a quest to uncover the truth, while the mysterious plague continues to tear society apart.
