GAME NEWS : The Star Ocean series will launch on October 27, 2022, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Steam.
This was revealed at Sony’s State of Play livestream conference in October 2021. Raymond Lawrence and Laeticia Aucerius are the protagonists of this tale, and they go on a mission to rescue the universe with a group of other heroes. It’s 46 years after the events of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, which was the last mainstream installment, and set in S.D.583.
Set between Star Ocean: Anamnesis and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, The Divine Force is set in the year S.D. 583 (A.D. 2670). Historically a force for peace and justice in the cosmos, the Pangalactic Federation has recently undergone a dramatic transformation, becoming shrouded in shadow and forcibly absorbing worlds against their will.
Captain Raymond Lawrence of the merchant ship Ydas is on a routine delivery voyage when he departs the unincorporated world of Verguld. Disaster strikes when Bennett Maudsley attacks the Ydas with the dedicated battleship Astoria, aboard which Marielle L. Kenny, a member of the prominent Kenny family in the Federation, is being transported. In the middle of the mayhem, Raymond and his crewmate Chloe Kanaris are forced to escape ship and make their way to the uninhabited fourth planet in the Aster System.
After arriving on the island, Raymond and Chloe get separated, and he is promptly assaulted by the indigenous creatures. When it appears like he is about to die, however, he is rescued by Laeticia Aucerius, the crown princess of the Kingdom of Aucerius, and Albaird Bergholm, her knight. Laeticia, awed by Raymond’s incredible backstory, begs him to help her discover the evasive Midas Felgreed and protect her realm from the neighboring Vey’l Empire. In return for information that might lead to the whereabouts of Chloe, he agrees. Both OKBET heroes are now on Aster IV, the starting point of a quest that will rock the cosmos to its very core.
