Hong Kong – July 6th, 2022 – Independent developer and publisher Eastasiasoft Limited today released a new combat trailer for the Chinese mythology-based action RPG Sword and Fairy: Together Forever, a brand new standalone entry in the storied franchise. The new trailer showcases real-time combat, magic spells, the skill progression system and how to counter enemy attacks. Sword and Fairy: Together Forever will release on PS5™ and PS4™ in North America, Europe and Australia on August 4th.
One of the biggest advancements in Sword and Fairy: Together Forever is its shift to fluid real-time combat rather than the turn-based mechanics of its predecessors. Enemies are visible on the field, allowing players to attack or attempt to avoid battles. Once engaged, combat is fast and frenetic as players unleash combos that grow lengthier and more powerful as characters level up. Each party member possesses unique skills that make them indispensable, and an element can be assigned to further customize and balance team composition. The player can also swap between characters that they’re actively controlling, allowing for complete control of the battlefield in any situation. Epic boss battles require quick-thinking strategy and feature “quick time events” that allow players to inflict bonus damage in cinematic style, while precise evasion slows time temporarily and leaves the enemy open to counterattack. Interwoven with intuitive controls, all these mechanics represent a massive leap forward for Sword and Fairy: Together Forever and make it a perfect jumping-on point as the series enters a new era of action RPG combat.
With its beginnings in 1995, the Sword and Fairy RPG series has captured the hearts and imagination of Chinese-speaking players for decades. Now, in 2022, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever advances mechanics and graphics presentation into the next generation. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever features intense real-time combat and vast detailed environments to explore, complemented by depth and engaging storytelling that have defined the franchise since its inception. This is a standalone RPG epic that can be enjoyed equally by long-time fans or newcomers without prior knowledge of the series, one that Eastasiasoft Limited is exceptionally proud to bring to new audiences worldwide.
Sword and Fairy: Together Forever was originally developed by Softstar Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. Eastasiasoft Limited will publish digitally in the west. This new console version of the game will feature four exclusive outfits and a weapon appearance not available in the original PC release. US & EU physical editions for PS5™ and PS4™ are also in the works with more details to be announced soon.
