Star Ocean is an action role-playing gaming franchise developed by tri-Ace and published by Square Enix. And after nearly five years since the release of the last mainline title of the series, Star Ocean: The Divine Force gets a debut trailer during Sony’s State of Play in Oct. 2021.
It will be released sometime in 2022 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The game will also be released as part of the commemoration of Star Ocean’s 25th Anniversary.

Much of the game’s design, including the brief dynamic combat we’re shown, looks to be based on its console 3D predecessor, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, for the PS4. We’re also introduced to a cast of new heroes, including a blonde ship captain and a silver-haired girl, who will be playing the role of duo-protagonists.
Like most Star Ocean games, The Divine Force also seems heavily narrative-driven. The characters talk of an oppressive organization called the “Federation” that chases them through space.
