Tales of Berseria for PC, PS4 and PS3 is the 16th instalment of the popular jRPG series, which started in 1995 on SNES console. The game was also developed by Bandai Namco. Prepared as a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the franchise, this is the final part of the series. For the first time in the history of the Tales of… cycle, the game introduces a female protagonist. The studio made some experiments with such idea before in Tales of Xillia published in 2011. However, that production featured two playable heroes, who performed equal roles in the story.
Tales of Berseria takes the player to the Midgand Sacred Kingdom composed of a few large plots of land and an array of small islands spread across an endless ocean. Due to the place of living, inhabitants of the Kingdom mastered sailing and build advanced and exceptionally fast ships. Midgdan’s climate is extremely unpredictable – some of its parts are covered with eternal snow, while others are bathed in the sun throughout the whole year. You assume the role of Velvet, a young woman, whose life was completely turned on its head the day she had a mysterious accident a few years before.
Just like its former instalments, Tales of Berseria features an extensive combat system based on unique abilities and combos. Players observe the action from the third-person perspective and during fights, they can control other members of the team.
