During PlayStation’s latest State of Play, we revealed Valkyrie Elysium – a new entry in the acclaimed Valkyrie series.
The Valkyrie series depicts the end of mankind and their encounters with the gods through a unique world inspired by Norse mythology.
This thrilling new action-RPG brings this franchise to PS5 and PS4 in an all-new standalone adventure.
We have a lot to tell you, but before we show you the game, let’s take a look at the trailer:
What is Valkyrie Elysium?
Valkyrie Elysium is an action RPG with an epic story, beautiful environments, and a new fast-paced combat system that combines strategy, action, and a unique combo system that will test your ability to think and react.
The game is set in the distant past, in a world where Ragnarok – the end times – looms large in the realms.
With the last of his strength, the All-Father creates an emissary of redemption – a solitary Valkyrie who can become the salvation of this doomed world. As this brave warrior descends into the ruined land, she encounters many challenges…and uncovers the hidden truth behind her impending destruction.
What will she think of this irrational world… and what end will she choose?
Valkyrie Elysium gameplay
Valkyrie Elysium also incorporates elements of classic gameplay from the Valkyrie series, such as the Einherjar – recruitable warriors who will join the hero and fight alongside him when summoned. It’s also a beautiful game, with incredible art design that captures the spirit of the series in an exciting and modern way. On PS5 it also runs at 4K and 60 FPS, making for an adventure that looks and feels beautifully crispy.
And, of course, we must mention the music. Series composer Motoi Sakuraba returns and contributes the game’s stunning score. RPGs are always better when they have a strong soundtrack, and this one is going to be… well, literally music to your ears.
Launching later this year
Valkyrie Elysee releases for PS5 and PS4 in 2022. We’ll have more information to share later on the Valkyrie’s triumphant return this year, so watch out for that!
