A new Mission Report video is available for Square Enix’s Star Ocean: The Divine Force, focusing on another playable character. It’s Marielle L. Kenny, vice-captain of the Astoria, which destroys Raymond’s ship and stranded him on Aster IV. Interestingly, she’s a descendant of classic Star Ocean characters like Ronyx J. Kenny and Ilia Silvestri.
Why does she suddenly team up with Raymond and friends? It’s not completely clear, but she is a valuable party member, wielding guns in combat. Other features showcased in the video include Item Crafting, Smithery and Engineering, along with a chess-like mini-game. Players can set down Pawns based on actual characters, each having unique stats.
Star Ocean: The Divine Force is out on October 27th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and PC. A demo is currently available for consoles, which is set near the beginning of Raymond’s story and offers roughly two hours of gameplay.
