Today XSEED Games announced a free demo is out now for their upcoming Action RPG adventure Silent Hope. The game is set to release on Nintendo Switch in North America and Windows PC via Steam worldwide on Oct. 3. The demo allows you to take on the first level of the Abyss, and is now available for download digitally on the Nintendo eShop  and Steam. The demo progress will carry over to full release on said platform.

Key Features

  • Seven Heroes, Seven Unique Fighting Styles: Players can choose from a motley crew of characters like the well-rounded Wanderer, long-range specialist Archer, or heavy-hitting Warrior to find whose skills suit their playstyle, and embrace new roles and abilities as they gain more experience.

  • A Home at the Edge of the World: Find new recipes and materials and return to the Base Camp at the edge of The Abyss, where each character has a unique job. From alchemist to blacksmith to cook, each hero brings something different.

  • Engaging Exploration and Dungeon-Crawling: Experience a new layout each time players enter the enigmatic Abyss, keeping them on their toes every moment. Stay on the lookout for Memory Rifts, where greater rewards and challenges await.

  • A Vibrant Storybook Aesthetic: With its mournful princess, spellbound kingdom, and everyday heroes, Silent Hope feels like a fairy tale come to life – right down to the mysteries waiting to be uncovered in the visually stunning underworld.

Pre-orders are now available for the Silent Hope physical Day 1 edition, which includes an artbook and soundtrack CD, at the XSEED Games Store and participating retailers for $49.99. The base game will be available digitally for $39.99 on the Nintendo eShop and Steam.
