MMORPG Caravan Stories Gives PlayStation 4 Adventurers Endless Tales to Discover July 23
TOKYO – May 13, 2019 – Caravan Stories—the free-to-play, anime-inspired MMORPG played by more than 2 million adventurers in Japan—heads to PlayStation 4 in North America with the adventure of a lifetime in an open beta on July 16 and full launch on July 23.
Thousands of stories are waiting to be told in Iyarr, a vast world of unbridled beauty and unexpected danger. Players can choose from four playable races to start and can unlock an additional race through playing the game. A sixth race will be added soon after launch. See a world filled with mysterious cities, elegant forests, and imposing canyons. Along the way players will befriend non-player characters, growing the fellowship by recruiting them and taming monsters.
From dastardly dungeons to open-world raids, only a party of stalwart companions can overcome the dangers of Iyarr. Up to six creatures and allies can band together, each boasting different skills and specialties. An assured victory will require players to balance the strengths and weaknesses of the party in thrilling, strategic encounters with monsters and demons.
A mysterious gate of darkness known as the Enigma manifests above Iyarr’s peaceful lands, flooding the realm with chaos. Soon, the once tranquil land will succumb to shadow. The champions of Iyarr must save the world from its grisly fate in a story packed with emotional strife, memorable characters, and intrigue among kingdoms.
Iyarr is as unpredictable as it is beautiful. As the sun falls and shadows turn to moonlit darkness, new monsters appear to threaten the party. When day breaks, other creatures join the fray, demanding new approaches and strategies. The time flow system influences dynamic world where surprising stories can unfurl at any moment.
A stirring orchestral soundtrack and artistic flair bring Caravan Stories to greater life. Watercolor tones and brush strokes render Iyarr in a dreamy manner unlike any other world. This unique touch enhances classic RPG systems and engaging social elements to create a world worth exploring.
“Bringing Caravan Stories to PlayStation 4 in North America will mark the beginning of many new stories,” said Masahiko Takeuchi, Director of Caravan Stories for PS4. “We can’t wait to hand the ink quill to our players and witness the tales they will write. The feedback, passion, and experiences of new adventurers will help us make and improve Caravan Stories for years to come. We are honored to welcome you to Iyarr.”
Caravan Stories will be at RTX in Austin, Texas July 5 -7 at the Austin Convention Center in booth #405.
Caravan Stories is developed by Aiming Inc., featuring producer Satoshi Takayashiki. It will support English subtitles and Japanese audio. Open beta will begin July 16, register now for email updates.
