Star Ocean: The Last Hope 4K & Full HD Remaster was something none of us were ready for. A remaster that would feature the game in higher frame rates, true HD resolutions, and in 4K for both PlayStation 4 as well as PC via STEAM. Tri-Ace and Square Enix announced the game earlier this year, announcing that the game would release with Full HD capabilities, but also PC keyboard/mouse, and controller support for those that opted to purchase the game.
The game features its original systems that fans got to enjoy on the PlayStation 3’s International Version. The game includes strategic real-time combat, item creation systems, and private action systems that allow players to explore the relationships their characters have built with one another. Because of these systems, players can look forward to deeper subplots, a more rewarding story and a rather exciting Blindside battle system, which allows them to take on both evasive and offensive advantages against their enemies.
The year is A.D. 2087. In the aftermath of World War III, Earth has been ravaged and the population decimated by a deteriorating environment. The countries that survived have joined together to form the Greater Unified Nations and turned their eyes skyward…to space. Edge Maverick and his childhood friend Reimi Saionji are chosen as pioneer members of the Space Reconnaissance Force, which was created to seek out new worlds beyond the stars. Their ship, the Calnus, takes its place on the lunar launch pad along with four other starships of the first reconnaissance fleet. These ships – humanity’s last hope – blast off one-by-one and sail into the awaiting wormhole that leads to the vast star ocean. And so, Edge and his crew begin their voyage in search of a new haven for humanity…and a second chance.
This newly launched edition is now available for Steam and PlayStation 4 users in all regions and can be purchased at a limited time discount of 10% until December 12th, 2017.
Stay tuned for or pending review.
