About Valkyria Chronicles

About this game

The critically acclaimed tactical role-playing game Valkyria Chronicles invades PC in 1080p True HD with all previously released DLC included!

Set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of the 1930s, Valkyria Chronicles depicts war-torn Europa, divided and ruled by two super powers: the Empire and the Federation.

The Empire has set its sights on invading the principality Gallia, which shares its borders with the two superpowers, in an attempt to secure an invaluable natural resource, Ragnite. You will take command of a hero named Welkin, a resistance fighter who heads the Gallian Militia, "Squad 7". Amidst this struggle, Welkin and his fellow soldiers are fighting back against the invasion and the Empire’s attempts to unify the continent under its power.

During the ensuing war, Squad 7 discovers that the Empire has imminent plans to unleash their new secret weapon, known as the “Valkyrur” – an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends...

Are you courageous enough to take on the Empire and protect the Gallian citizens before it's too late?

Key Features:

  • “CANVAS” graphics engine: A unique engine that produces breath taking images that look like watercolor paintings in motion.

  • “BLiTZ” tactical battle system: Experience strategic maneuvering of units combined with conventional RPG gameplay, all layered on top of the moment to moment action afforded by real-time controls as players command each squad member and tank in battle.

  • Epic storyline: Players will immerse themselves in the epic struggle for freedom, as the fate of the world lies in the hands of Welkin and the members of the 7th platoon.

  • Customization: Over 100 customizable characters allow players to create a variety of platoons to suit each battle’s needs.

  • Beautifully rendered battlefields: Players explore 30 different environments, using unique terrain features to gain advantages in battle.

Valkyria Chronicles is a real hidden gem in the world of tactical RPGs, offering a blend of strategic warfare and engaging storytelling that's hard to beat. Set in a beautifully imagined world inspired by Europe during WWII, this game takes you on an emotional rollercoaster amidst the chaos of war. What makes Valkyria Chronicles stand out is its innovative mix of turn-based and real-time strategy. You lead a diverse squad of characters, each with their own quirks and abilities, into battle. The "BLiTZ" combat system brings a refreshing twist by allowing you to plan your moves in real-time while maintaining the depth of turn-based strategy. Visually, Valkyria Chronicles is a work of art. Its watercolor-style graphics make the game feel like a living canvas, and the character design, especially the main characters like Welkin and Alicia, adds depth to the story. Speaking of the story, it's a real standout. Valkyria Chronicles doesn't just focus on battles; it delves into themes like love, war, and prejudice. You'll become emotionally invested in the characters of Squad 7 and genuinely care about their fate. As your squad members level up, the game's progression system rewards you with new abilities and equipment, allowing for diverse tactics and strategies. The freedom to experiment and tackle missions in various ways keeps the gameplay fresh. However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. Some missions can be pretty challenging, occasionally testing your patience. The AI can be unpredictable, leading to moments of frustration. Additionally, the story's pacing can feel uneven at times. In summary, Valkyria Chronicles is a captivating and thoughtfully designed tactical RPG that deserves recognition. With its unique gameplay, stunning visuals, and emotionally resonant storytelling, it's a must-play for strategy enthusiasts and those seeking an immersive, war-torn world. Despite a few hiccups, this game is a journey you won't want to miss.

Valkyria Chronicles Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
A sobering look at the lengths humanity will go to in combat, Valkyria Chronicles takes World War II and puts a JRPG twist on it - not shying away from the horror of war, or the atrocities. The CANVAS graphics are incredible and the story is emotive.
