The game is slated to launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The game will include a co-op online multiplayer option for parties up to four players. Square Enix stated the game will feature "a range of post launch game modes" for free.
Square Enix describes the game:Join a group of warriors bonded with special equipment called Gideon Coffins in an odyssey to overcome the titanic Tower of Babylon. Wield unique weapons in both hands, and use the power of the Gideon Coffin, allowing for combinations of up to four weapons at once. The capabilities of different equipment will also bring endless strategic variation to combat. Game visuals are achieved using a newly developed “brushwork style” to create a unique fantasy setting with a medieval oil painting aesthetic.
The staff are now recruiting for a closed beta test of the game. The game will require a "persistent broadband internet connection" and a free Square Enix account to play.
Square Enix announced the game in June 2018. The game was previously slated to launch for PS4 and PC via Steam in 2019. Square Enix is working with Plantinum Games on the project.
Platinum Games has developed such games as Bayonetta, Vanquish, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, The Wonderful 101, and Nier: Automata.
