Star Ocean: The Divine Force will be getting a demo on September 20 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One; its TGS 2022 trailer reveals new playable characters
Tri-Ace and Square Enix had a lot of new details to share for Star Ocean: The Divine Force at TGS 2022. A new trailer reveals three new playable characters and a demo for the upcoming RPG is coming on September 20 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. The title will still be releasing on PC, but its PC version will not be getting the demo.
One of the new playable characters revealed almost immediately in the TGS 2022 trailer is a blue-haired woman, Marielle L. Kenny. She wields a pistol in combat and is from the Astoria, the battleship that destroyed Raymond's ship at the beginning of his story.
Several story beats are covered in the trailer, including how the Pangalactic Federation has been working with the primary antagonists, the Vey'l Empire. At some point, Nina, Midas, and Malkya travel off-world and interact with some of the more sci-fi scenery that Raymond is used to.
Some battle footage includes the newly revealed Marielle and stealthily confirms another new party member, J.J. They look like some sort of cyberkinetic being that wears samurai armor; no real details were shared of J.J. and presumably they will have a more formal reveal down the line. A mysterious red-haired male that looks like a martial artist joins the party too wielding a spear. The completed key visual which serves as Star Ocean: The Divine Force's box art was revealed during the game's TGS 2022 stream that adds Malkya, Marielle, J.J., and the red-haired male.
As for the September 20 demo for Star Ocean: The Divine Force, it will feature the start of Raymond's story. The presenters at the TGS 2022 program for the game say that it will roughly have around two hours of content for players.
The title's theme song was performed by HYDE and their song, PANDORA, is highlighted in its TGS 2022 trailer as well. Check it out down below.
