Aniplex Inc., TYPE-MOON and DELiGHTWORKS has announced a brand new Fate/Grand Order chapter that’s now available as part of an application update for mobile devices.
During this past weekends Los Angeles kickoff for the Fate/Grand Order tour across the United States, TYPE-MOON were proud to announce the first chapter of Fate/Grand Order called Fate/Grand Order – Epic of Remnant with the first chapter called Pseudo-Singularity I: Quarantined Territory of Malice, Shinjuku – Shinjuku Phantom Incident.
The new chapter within the game takes center stage in one of Japan’s most iconic wards – Shinjuku. In this ward, a murder case of an unprecedented scale was ignited in a prison district, cut off from the outside world. During the panel that kicked off the event, FGO Project creative producer, Yosuke Shiokawa, and voice actor, Satoshi Tusruoka, talked about the new project itself.
The new event, chronicling the Incineration of Humanity, ties directly into the Epic of Remnant, bringing players to Part 1.5, of the event. This new part consists of four chapters, all of which will lead into the upcoming Part 2 of Fate/Grand Order and its riveting storyline. Part 2 will follow up on the Shinjuku Phantom Incident, which will give fans plenty more to look forward to as subsequent chapters such as Women of Agartha, Seven Duels of Swordmasters, and Heretical Salem are released.
But as you dive into the current chapter, the Pseudo-Singularity, you’ll find that the perfect crime has been set into motion, and you aren’t going to solve it alone. Instead, you’ll have a chance to summon forth Limited Time Servants as you’ll see below:
- ★5 (SSR) Archer of Shinjuku
- ★4 (SR) Assassin of Shinjuku
- ★4 (SR) Avenger of Shinjuku.
You’ll also face off against new and more powerful enemies, each possessing new and different HP mechanics than before. These new mechanics will require players to deplete the HP gauge multiple times in order to complete a single encounter, making it a worthwhile and awarding experience altogether.
Along with the new encounters comes a chance to receive bonus Bond Points for clearing quests within the Pseudo-Singularity I event. Each character that is of an “Evil” alignment, will receive these bonus points throughout the course of the quests for the newly released chapter.
Along with a new soundtrack, the new part, and new enemy mechanics; a new Master Level cap has been introduced, increasing the cap from 130 to 140. The new music and new level cap can be experienced alongside brand new quest cutscenes throughout the entirety of your story in these Limited Events.
