Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition announced for PS4 and PC via Steam, coming October 18

After an early leak thanks to Germany's rating board, tri-Ace formally announced today that their gun-slinging RPG Resonance of Fate will be getting a new version titled Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition, which will be a digital-only release for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. It is scheduled to be released on October 18, 2018, for $35 USD/€35 EU. 

Here's a full run-down of the announcement:

Japan-based software developer tri-Ace today announced that it has remastered its classic tactical gunplay role-playing game Resonance of Fate in 4K HD as a digital-only release on PlayStation 4 and, for the first time, on PC. The steampunk aesthetic, fateful story, soaring symphonic soundtrack, and intense gun combat for which the game is known now burst to life and play out in incredibly high resolution. All the action is set to a magnificent music score composed by Motoi Sakuraba and Kohei Tanaka. 

Set in the distant future when humankind nears extinction and is ruled by the ‘Basel’ perpetual motion machine – a massive environmental conservation device of man’s own making run amuck; Resonance of Fate weaves a tale of guns and emotional bonds during this end of days. The game’s three protagonists - Zephyr, Vashyron, and Leanne, work as mercenaries and, through their missions uncover the truth behind the ruling Cardinals and Basel.

Originally released in early 2010 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms (and known as End of Eternity in Japan), Resonance of Fate received accolades for its ‘tri-attack’ battle system – a mix of real-time and turn-based controls; the focus on gun combat and gun customization; and its over-the-top cinematic hero actions of the main characters. Critics praised the gameplay and unique combat system that combines strategy with aerial gun battles and fast-paced thrills. 

Those who decide to preorder Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition early on the PlayStation 4 will receive exclusive PS4 themes and avatar sets. As of right now, the only perk for Steam users is the ability to add the game to your wish-list.
