SQUARE ENIX has finally announced an official release date for STAR OCEAN THE DIVINE FORCE, the latest STAR OCEAN game which they announced a while back. The game is scheduled to launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Steam, this upcoming October 27th, 2022. SQUARE ENIX states in their press release that the Standard Edition of the game will be available physically and digitally. They also mention that there will be a Digital Deluxe Edition which along with the game, comes with a copy of the soundtrack in addition to an in-game Armour Pack, Accessory pack and Weapons pack. Not only that, but SQUARE says customers who purchase a physical or digital edition of STAR OCEAN THE DIVINE FORCE early enough, will get an additional special item and there is also a pre-order bonus available for customers as well. You can find more info from the press release about the pre-order and early purchase bonuses, down below. You’ll also find three different trailers below which SQUARE ENIX uploaded earlier today and a little more info about the game.

Customers who early purchase any physical or digital edition of STAR OCEAN THE DIVINE FORCE will receive a mini game pawn pack*. Customers who pre-order either the Digital Standard Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition will also receive an in-game item weapon pack for the protagonists, the “Greatsword” for Raymond, “Lionheart’s Blutgang”, and the “Dual blades” for Laeticia, “Flashing Naglering.”

* The digital early purchase incentive will be available until November 30, 2022.
* The physical early purchase incentive will be offered by select retailers and will be available while stocks last.

The game features dual protagonists, who offer different story perspectives and gameplay experiences: Raymond, the captain of the space trading ship, Ydas, and Laeticia, the princess-knight of a kingdom on the underdeveloped planet, Aster IV. Fate will bring Raymond, Laeticia, and several other ally characters together, all designed by renowned artist Akiman (STAR OCEAN: Integrity and Faithlessness, STREET FIGHTER series).
