A new game is coming to the Star Ocean franchise called Star Ocean: The Divine Forge. The trailer shown at Wednesday’s Sony State of Play event depicted a spaceship struggling with some sort of crisis. The crew is unable to solve the crisis, and the whole thing explodes. It’s a dramatic start to the trailer, but then we see open world gameplay with lush environments and monsters.

The setting looks like a healthy mix between spaceship sci-fi and dangerous fantasy planets, along with a battle system in which the crew fights off threatening monsters. The game will feature two protagonists: one from an advanced sci-fi civilization, the other from an underdeveloped planet. The player can choose either one, and they each have their own allies and story.

Picking characters — both the protagonist you choose to play, and their supporting party —seems important to the open-world battle systems. Luckily, it’s easy to get around the game’s world thanks to jetpack technology, which looks a little like the initial pitch for Anthem.

The Divine Force is developed by Square Enix and tri-Ace, and set to be released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2022.
