game release date for PS4:
Death end re;Quest is a classic jRPG with turn-based combat system, which takes place in an MMO game using advanced VR and AI technologies. Producers of the title are Japanese companies Idea Factory and Compile Heart, which specialize in releasing low-budget and niche RPGs, designed for PlayStation family consoles and PCs. Death end re;Quest reminds to a large extent, other works by the developer from the Hyperdimension Neptune series.
Action Death end re;Quest takes place in the near future. The main character of the title is Arata Mizunashi, a programmer who works on computer games every day. One day he receives a mysterious email from Shina, his former work colleague, who had disappeared in mysterious circumstances a year earlier. Together with her, he worked on a new MMO entitled World's Odyssey (W.O.D.), which benefited from the advanced VR and AI technology offered by the Alice engine. Arata discovers from the news that Shina has been imprisoned in the game and has been trying to get out of it for a year, but in order to do so, she has to reach the real end of the game, where she has only one percent chance to unlock. With the help of friends from the real world and virtual characters independent of the World's Odyssey the protagonist decides to help her friend to achieve this goal.
Action in Death end re;Quest is presented from the perspective of a third person. In the course of the game we explore the following levels World's Odysseywhere we fight dangerous bosses and enemies. There are several characters on our team, each with unique attacks, combat skills and skills to unlock paths that are not normally available on individual maps of the world.
The duels take place in dedicated arenas, to which we are transferred after attacking a selected enemy. We fight in turn-based mode by selecting commands and attacks from the menu for each character. A novelty is the possibility of modifying the way of the battle. Loading special programs we temporarily change the style of the game, for example to a first person shooter or a fight. Let's add that the game also has a classic system of quests and equipment, which we buy or find during the exploration of the world. It is worth mentioning that the players also conduct a private investigation into Shiny in the real world, to which they move after logging out of World's Odyssey. This segment of the game was presented in the form of visual novel.
Death end re;Quest is the second game in the history of Idea Factory and Compile Heart using the Unreal Engine, which compared to older developers' production significantly improved the quality of graphics and smooth operation of production. Two-dimensional elements of the visual setting were made in the style known from previous works of artists. The game offers full acting dubbing, both in English and Japanese.
