The history of the Great War, and Europa, in five minutes.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is now out, and it’s an excellent game that I feel everyone should look into, in spite of some minor issues. However, newcomers could feel intimidated at jumping into a game with “4” in its title— even though Valkyria Chronicles 4 actually takes place contemporaneously to the original, so no knowledge of the previous titles is needed.
For those newcomers, as well as those interested in learning more about the series’ alternate take on Europe and the Second World War, Sega has released a brand new trailer for Valkyria Chronicles 4, which catches players up with the in-universe historical context leading up to the conflict between the Atlantic Federation and the Empire that comprises the story of the game. You can watch this trailer for yourself below.
Of course, there’s far more human heart to the game than a simple war-history style overview can do justice to, but at the very least, this should be enough to pique your interest in it, if nothing else.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is out now on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
