The release date for upcoming action RPG Valkyrie Elysium was recently leaked courtesy of the game’s PlayStation Store changes, and now, publisher Square Enix has officially confirmed those details. Valkyrie Elysium will launch for PS5 and PS4 on September 29, with a PC release (via Steam) set for November 11.
A new trailer (which was also leaked recently) confirms the game’s launch details, while also showcasing plenty of gameplay details and dropping some story nuggets. Various characters are introduced, and more light is shed on the game’s central premise of fighting to defend a world under the threat of Ragnarok. Meanwhile, plenty of its fast-paced and free-flowing combat is also shown off. In terms of gameplay, visuals, and polish, it’s certainly making a much stronger impression than its rough announcement trailer did earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Square Enix has also unveiled a Digital Deluxe Edition for the game. On PS5 and PS4, it will cost $74.99, and in addition to in-game items like the Svartaljr: Sword of the Goddess of the Underworld equipment, it will also include a console port of the PSP title Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. The game will come with new features like rewind, quick saves, and visual presets. Those who want to purchase it separately via the PlayStation Store will also have the option to do so.
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is going to be exclusive to PS5 and PS4 though. On PC, the Digital Deluxe Edition will only include the aforementioned equipment and will cost $64.99. The Standard Edition, meanwhile, will cost $59.99 on all platforms.
Fellow Square Enix RPG The DioField Chronicle will also launch in September.
