Square Enix

Today is the day that Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is available in Europe after North America got the game last Tuesday. Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is the fifth game in the main Star Ocean series developed by tri-Ace for the PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation 3 in Japan only).

The story takes place between Star Ocean: The Second Story and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, taking place centuries after humans have left Earth for the distant Faykreed star system. The swordsman Fidel Camuze and his childhood friend, Miki Sauvester, set out to protect their village from being swallowed in the tides of civil unrest. Together with a diverse group of companions, Fidel and Miki are tasked with protecting the Kingdom of Resulia while also being drawn into battle with outside forces.

Yesterday the first Star Log has been broadcasted on YouTube and Twitch about the upcoming Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, the fifth game in the Star Ocean series. During the stream the story trailer has been revealed and two characters profiles were shown from Fidel Camuze (the protagonist) and Miki Sauvester.

What also has been revealed is that Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will feature dual audio. You can select Japanese and English voice overs and English subtitles.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will be released in North America and Europe on PlayStation 4 this Summer. Japan will get the PlayStation 4 version on 31 March and the PlayStation 3 version on 28 April.

During Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference they've announced that Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will be released in North America and Europe. Also a new trailer was revealed showing gameplay footage of the game.

Square Enix is also trying to make it more game-like than movie-like by replacing some static cutscenes with dynamic ones. The above video was captured at 30 fps, but Square Enix said that the finished game will be running at 60 fps.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will hit North America and Europe somewhere in 2016 and Japan in Winter 2015.

The latest issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu has revealed that Square Enix's new project, which SE has been teasing for a couple of days now, is Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness! The game is in development by tri-Ace and will be released on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The prologue of the game is as follows:

Do the depths of space forbid peace for mankind—

Centuries after leaving Earth, after a multitude of trials, with the creation and spread of the ‘Galactic Federation,’ humanity was on the verge of unified order and peace.

But the embers of conflict have begun to burn again.

Over 6,000 light years from Earth, on the unsettled planet, ‘Feycreed.’

Just as so many times before, the waves of history begin from a remote planet.
