Edge Of Eternity is an epic, open-world JRPG following the grand quest of Daryon and Selene, two siblings who take up arms and defy the harsh truth of their world in order to save their mother from a deadly plague, the Corrosion. It combines the compelling exploration of a gorgeous world with tense, tactical turn-based combat rhythmed by an Active Time Bar. As Daryon and Selene meet new companions, the playable group of characters gets wider and more complex, allowing for elaborate strategies and customizable tactics.
“Thirty years ago, strange metal airships appeared in our skies…”
The very foundation of Edge Of Eternity is the anachronical confrontation between the technology advanced Archelites, an invading race of aliens with starships and mechs, and the fantastic world of Heryon, a magical place where swords and sorcery make everything work. The theater set for the story of the game is a terrible, devastating war that has gone on for years, tearing Heryon apart and living its people vulnerable to the all-consuming Corrosion, a horrifying disease that turns every living being it infects into a metallic abomination.
In this magical land wounded by a senseless war, two siblings, Daryon and Selene, follow a rather pure-hearted quest: desperate to save their mother from the nightmarish plague that threatens the people of Heryon, they gather companions and ressources as they look for a cure for the Corrosion. Each character they convince to join them – the enigmatic Myrna, the sarcastic Ysoris and all the others – come with their own storyline, motivations and bonds, creating dynamic and organic narratives between each member of the group.
Edge Of Eternity was made by developers who have fallen in love with the JRPG genre, and it shows: afficionados of the genre will feel right at home gathering crystals to empower and customize their weapons or organizing their party to protect the casters while assaulting their enemies with quick and powerful martial attacks. The layout of the world of Heryon, which features both elements of modernity and fantasy, is also a staple that will ring the music of nostalgia for players who enjoy those games! Of course, hearing the soundtracks of Yasunori Mitsuda – a legendary composer well known for this work on Xenoblade Chronicles, among many others – will help create this atmospheric feeling. Last but not least, the adorable giant cat mount, the already iconic Nekaroo, fits perfectly in this environment.
For the developers of Midgar Studio, who grew up with and have had their tastes in game shaped by classical JRPGs such as the Final Fantasy franchise (who could have guessed that while looking at their studio’s name?), it was essential to take from their inspiration what they loved most while welcoming modernity in their project, creating this unique system of grid-based ATB combat, the exciting open-world exploration spiced with resource-gathering and the memorable storyline that mixes high fantasy and a gritty, realistic depiction of a world-ravaging war.
From today onwards, experience this unique cocktail that is Edge Of Eternity for yourself! You can get the game through the Game Pass on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and on PC!
