During Sony's latest State of Play Square Enix has revealed another new game. This time a new instalment in the Valkyrie series titled Valkyrie Elysium. This action RPG will be released in 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Steam.

The world is on the brink of destruction. You play as a Valkyrie who is entrusted with the fate of this world by the All-Father - the highest among gods and the ruler of all creation. Descending to the land below, you must battle powerful foes, and uncover the secrets behind the impending ruin.

Like previous games in the Valkyrie series, this game features fast-paced combat with a brand new real-time action combat system that rewards both fast reactions and strategic thinking. You can also recruit the Einherjar - warriors who’ll join the hero and fight at her side when summoned. Motoi Sakuraba, the series composer, has returned to contribute tracks for the soundtrack.
