Square Enix has announced the release of the demo version of Valkyrie Elysium on 15 September!
Valkyrie Elysium is the fifth installment in the Valkyrie series, which will be available on PS4/5 and PC via Steam. It follows the adventures of a new Valkyrie named Maria, who has been assigned by Odin, the All-Father, to prevent Ragnarok from happening. As Maria travels through the wreckage of Midgard on her mission, she comes face to face with the strange Valkyrie Hilde, who is Fenrir’s servant.
Unlike the previous games in the series, Valkyrie Elysium is an action-packed RPG. As such, battles have evolved to become more intuitive and three-dimensional. Players will take on the role of Maria as she fights enemies and traverses environments. Einherjar can still be summoned as support in battle, but the player does not have direct control over him. Instead, Einherjar act on their own and can be instructed to attack specific enemies or perform specific tasks. Meanwhile, players can also customize their playstyle by upgrading weapons, skills, and Einherjar/Divine Arts combos.
Unlike previous installments in the series, Valkyrie Elysium is developed by Soleil. The game’s soundtrack is composed by Motoi Sakurabawhile Yuya Nagai was responsible for character design.
