FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BRAINTREE, UK – 20/05/2014

With both Agarest: Generations of War & Agarest: Generations of War Zero both part of today’s Steam Daily Deal Ghostlight have taken the opportunity to announce that Agarest: Generations of War 2, the sequel to Compile Heart & Idea Factory’s #1 best selling JRPG Agarest: Generations of War will also be coming to Steam later this year.

Agarest: Generations of War 2 introduces several new features to the series including a new faster paced active grid-based battle system and an all new Agarest Universe to explore.

Unlike its predecessors Agarest: Generations of War 2 was never released on Xbox 360 so Ghostlight will be working with the team over at Laughing Jackal to port the PS3 version of this popular JRPG to PC.

More on Agarest: Generations of War 2

THE THIRD INSTALMENT IN THE THRILLING AGAREST SERIES!

One day, the world was enveloped by a mysterious blinding light causing terrible destruction.  The central continent, from where the light is believed to have originated, fell silent whilst demons began to spread throughout the world like a plague.

Sometime afterwards, a young man by the name of Weiss, suffering from amnesia, encounters the enigmatic Eva, from whom Weiss learns that he has committed the grievous sin of deicide.  In order to atone for his crime, he must become the "Vessel" in which the power of the divinity he slaughtered will be stored. For it will be that power which will be used to resurrect the one whose life he stole.

For those who betray the divine will pay for their sins in the space which separates salvation and damnation, as will their progeny…

Revamped Battle System: Unlike the first two games of the series, Agarest 2 battles are fought with an engaging active grid-based battle system.

HD graphics: Enjoy your favourite characters, environments and CGs in high-definition!

Mini-games: Engage in Bathtub, Shiatsu and Massage mini-games.
