STORY

"AD 2064. Humanity made its third and most costly mistake. World War III. Weapons of mass destruction deployed with complete impunity, razed the land in the blink of an eye. People believed it's the end of the world. The planet Earth was dying. So humanity began to search for a new home in space."

"AD 2074 first contact. SD0001 first warp. SD0010 -- first official SRF mission. The first official SRF mission ventures forth into the great Star Ocean."

It is said that World War III ended in 2064, but the effects of the war remained. When humanity began to search for a new home in space, the USTA was established. In AD 2087, Professor Trillas Bachtein succeeded with his space warp experiments. This was the last day of the AD calendar and first day of the SD calendar. After the success of Professor Trillas Bachtein, the USTA began to secretly implement its SRF project. In SD 0010, the first official SRF mission begun.

GAMEPLAY

The game will use the same real-time battle system as previous games in the series. There is a new Rush gauge: a feature that allows the play to either have a pre-emptive strike against the enemy, or it will allow them to use a certain ability or special attack. Each character will have their own unique Rush gauge status. Another new feature is the Sight in/Sight out system in which the player can leave an enemy targeting them open to a counter by leaving their line of sight. Unlike previous installments, the character's ship can be piloted. Private Actions also return. Item Creation, a large gameplay component in all installments, will be featured.

System

Calnus

A first in the series, the player takes the role of captain of the SRF spacecraft, the Calnus. The ship is one of five assigned to scout new frontiers under the First Expeditionary Batch and authorized by the USTA. Numbered 003, the Calnus contains a flight deck where the player can pilot the ship to various planets throughout the game. Further inside is the spacious recreation room where the player's teammates hang out, the conference room, where the player can gather the crew to come up with new ideas for Item Creation (IC). Crew's quarters is where all the crew sleep and rest during space travel. A battle arena is also available for the player and his teammates to practice their moves. The ship is one of the sources of Private Actions that can occur in the game.

Item Creation

Commonly known as IC, Item Creation is a tradition throughout the Star Ocean series. The player can create weapons, healing items and accessories for use in the game. Raw items used in IC can commonly be found in shops, while rarer and uncommon types can be found in combat fields. In Star Ocean 4, a new feature called "Recipe Creation Conference" has been added. The player will be able to gather his team members in discussion of creating an item, but the abilities and stats of the final product will vary due to the team members' different personalities and characteristics, specifically their IC skills. This allows the player to experiment, creating the same items with different members each time for desired results. Creation of weapons and accessories can wield out added effects using raw items, for example, the player can create a HP+30% healing item or a weapon with ATK+10% effect. This in turn leads to an enormous amount of variations for the same item. However, creation of items have failure rates and ingredients and supplies will be destroyed in the process. Welch Vineyard returns in this game, in charge of fulfiling IC requests from the player. Besides the usual items the player can build during IC, ship decoration items are also available for creation. These optional items spruce up the Calnus, adding more features such as new furniture, vending machines, a jukebox that plays unlocked tracks of Star Ocean 4 in the game, a biorhythm machine that analyzes the player's and team members' health status, and etc.

Private Action

Commonly known as PA, Private Actions once again returns in Star Ocean 4, where the protagonist Edge Maverick can interact with his team members. By conversing with them during rest after exploration or battle, the player can form a rapport with him/her, which increases the member's affection or respect for the main character. Talking correctly by choosing the right choices and fulfiling the conditions unlock special events or cutscenes between Edge and the team member. The player can also select a team member for roommate, which also builds up rapport and further unlocks more PA events. In battle, a special "Rage" mode can be unlocked if Edge is seriously injured or near death, which angers the member into attacking enemies with much stronger attacks to defend him. Finally, PAs pave the way for different cutscenes shown during the ending of the game. A total of about 100 PAs can be achieved in the game.

Battle

Rush Mode

The main new feature in battle is the Rush system. Each team member can unleash special or preemptive attacks by building up their Rush gauges during normal attacks. Besides returning to 4 party members in battle, new features in Star Ocean 4 such as Jump add different varieties and styles during combat. Sight In/Sight Out can let the player evade enemy attacks and dash behind them, inflicting counterattacks from their blind sides. Another new mode is the Real Time Member Change, which allows the player to switch out active members for reserve members during battle.

BEAT System

Battle Exalted Action Type (BEAT) System allows the player to choose Edge's and active team members' preferred fighting styles, such as offense, defense, sneak attacks, etc. As combat experience increases, the team can achieve higher combat rank statuses, which unlock advanced styles, known as Action Upgrades. BEAT.S is a type of offense fighting style, which is actually a special Sight Out technique. In effect, the team member forgoes defense and initiates multiple Sight Outs to confuse the enemy, then unleashes a flurry of highly damaging attacks. BEAT.B is a type of defense fighting style, a special Rush mode power play style. The team member fights the enemy directly in front with special attacks. During this time, the member is almost invulnerable to enemy attacks.

Special Attacks and Symbology
As the player's and team members' levels increases, special attacks for each of them can be unlocked. A variety of long-range, short-range or area attacks can be performed. As level increases, these attacks will get much stronger and damaging. Link Combos can be created by chaining special attacks together, which makes it highly effective during boss battles. All these require MP to perform in battle. Symbology, or also known as Heraldry, allows the usage of magic by inscribing symbols or crests on the body. MP usuage differs from each character, a combat-oriented fighter who isn't used to casting magic may lose more MP than an adept Symbology user does. Various symbols have different casting times, depending on the user's stats. Link Combos can also be used when casting Symbology for creating multiple chains of magic attacks.

Själv är jag övertygad om att SO4 blir bättre än det mesta i genren till XO.

Säger väl inte så mycket, rent kritkmässigt. Om det blir i samma liga som LO och TOV (Har inte spelat det, men kan man undgå den goda kritiken?), så blir jag mycket nöjd.

Fortfarande inget J-RPG, till 360/PS3, som blivit 90+ kvalitè.

Cool tråd ;) Ser fram emot detta spel fruktansvärt mycket. Älskar samtliga spel i serien, så jag är nästan säker på att detta kommer bli hur bra som helst. Inte ser det fult ut heller. Hoppas man får reda på releasedatum i EU väldigt snart...

Härlig tråd RyuKen.

Har själv spelat Star Ocean 4 en hel del, och det är ett riktigt bra spel.
Endast White Knight Story som kommer upp i samma kaliber i år, som jag också spelat riktigt mycket.

Wow. Den är svår, då ingen av föregångarna är lik den andra ^^
Star Ocean 2 är ju överlägset det bästa i serien tycker jag, då 3:an är smått av en flopp.
Så långt jag spelat av SO4 (förstår inte storyn såklart), så är det väl mest likt SO3, men mycket bättre :)
Men jag skulle inte våga mig på en recension, av ett spel där jag knappt förstår menyerna, eller handligen ännu. Det är vackert spel. Tror inte det kommer gripa tag i mig på samma sätt som Lost Odyssey, men blir nog utan tvekan topp 3 j-rpg denna generation :)

Jag hade minst lika kul med So3 som med 2:an, tycker det är ett toppenspel med några få missar. Men jag antar att striderna i 4:an är mer som 3:an, med några nyheter kanske? Striderna håller jag ändå som det viktigaste i ett SO-spel. Det låter iaf mycket lovande.

Jag tror strax efter. FXIII och Versus är ju ändå två olika spel, och en ''besvikelse'', som XII var, får helt enkelt inte hända igen. Nej.

Vad är din åsikt om Tales of Vesperia, då? Om du haft nöjet att lira, vilket jag förmodar att du har... [smile]

Inget som är bekräftat, vad jag vet. Själv ska jag bevaka Videogames-bloggen, eller hoppas på tur. [blush]

Testade det, men illa kvickt gick jag tillbaka till SO4.
Tales of Vesperia är säkert okej, men WKC och SO4 har intresserat bra mycket mer.

FF13 och FFV13 ser garanterat ut att inte vara ytterligare ett FF12, utan verkar ha hittat tillbaka till storspelen FF7 och 8 :)

Synd bara att Uematsu inte längre kan förgylla ännu ett FF, med det han är bäst på. Att beröra genom spel.

Hamauzu är ju dock rutinerad, så det blir säkert fint. Men på förhand, och med tanke på hur noggrant Square-Enix hållt i utvecklingen, känns det som du kommer ha rätt.
