Players will experience the continuation of the tactical role-playing series in Valkyria Chronicles 4, in a unique watercolor graphic style, with new characters and a gripping war story full of hope, momentous triumphs and heartbreaking losses.
The continent of Europe - an alternative timeline - is in the midst of the Second European War between the Atlantic Federation and the autocratic Eastern European imperial alliance. Although the Federation is bravely fighting the forces of the Empire, the ruthless Imperial military machinery threatens to devour them. The operation "Northern Cross" is to avert the threat of defeat by a daring attack on the imperial capital at the last moment. Commander Claude Wallace and his most loyal friends are sent as Squad E to ensure the success of the desperate operation. But not only scary dangers and countless imperial soldiers await the brave heroes, but also the terrible Valkyria and a bloodcurdling realization.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 Features:
- A Coming-of-Age War History: Valkyria Chronicles 4 plays during the same period of the original Valkyria Chronicles, but focuses the story on completely new main characters. Players take control of young and eager commander Claude Wallace, exceptional engineer and heavy weapon expert Riley Miller, hot-headed Darcsen Raz, ice-cold master sniper Kai Schulen and many more interesting characters. Together they will experience the ruthless reality of the war and will clarify the question of whether the friendship of Squad E can survive any battlefield.
