During the most recent State of Play event, we unveiled Valkyrie Elysium, a new addition in the critically renowned Valkyrie series that will be released on PlayStation 4.
The Valkyrie series tells the story of humanity’s final days and their meetings with the gods in a setting inspired by Norse mythology, which is unlike anything else on the market. A brand-new solo adventure, this exhilarating new action-RPG takes the series to the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
What is Valkyrie Elysium?
It’s an action-RPG with an epic tale, breathtaking locations, and a revolutionary fast-paced combat system that blends strategy, action, and a unique combo system that will put your ability to think and react to the test. Valkyrie Elysium is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Taking set in the distant past, in a world where Ragnarok – the End Times – hangs over all of the kingdoms, this game is a journey through time.
As he draws on his last ounce of power, the All-Father conjures up a messenger of redemption — a lone Valkyrie who has the potential to save this doomed world from destruction. As this courageous warrior makes her way down into the destroyed realm, she confronts a variety of difficulties… It reveals the underlying truth that is at the root of the planet’s impending demise. What will she make of this illogical universe... and what will she do with it at the end of it all?
The gameplay of Valkyrie Elysium
It also features parts of the old gameplay of the Valkyrie series, such as the Einherjar – recruitable warriors who will battle alongside the hero when called – and other elements of the Valkyrie series’ classic gameplay. Aside from that, it’s a stunning game with fantastic graphical design that captures the essence of the franchise in an interesting, contemporary manner. Additionally, it is operating in 4K at 60 frames per second on the PS5, providing a visually and physically stunning encounter.
And, of course, we can’t forget about the soundtrack. Motoi Sakuraba, the series’ composer, returns to the game to contribute to its magnificent soundtrack. When an RPG has a good soundtrack, it’s always better, and this one is going to be… well, literally music to your ears, as the saying goes.
