While PC gamers are set to miss out on it at this time, JRPG fans on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S may wish to head to their platform’s respective digital distribution platform and pick up the Tales of Arise demo. Ahead of the game’s launch next month, this demo will allow players to give the first Tales game of a new console generation a try, and discover its cast of characters and approach to gameplay.
Upon starting the demo, players will be able to pick their favourite character and begin exploring a part of Elde Menancia, one of the regions in the full game. Developer and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment hope that players will be able to discover “the spectacular combat gameplay, exploration with camping, and cooking, as well as the new skits system”.
Those who participate in the demo will be able to redeem the Vacation Hootle as a bonus for the game once it releases.
Tales of Arise will launch on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC starting 10 September 2021.
