An Adventure All Your Own
Begin your journey as one of eight travelers, each with their own origin, talents and goals. Where will your tale begin? Who will you team up with? And where will you go next? Go it alone, or delve into each of the seven other travelers’ independent stories as you journey onwards.
Each hero brings a different tale to be told, new perspectives on the game’s turn-based combat, and special abilities to use out in the field. Experiment with these unique skills to fell foes, complete side quests, and influence the world around you.
