A demo of Arslan: The Warriors of Legend will launch for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on January 12, Koei Tecmo announced.
The demo will include a mission from the first stage of the game, taking players through a short tutorial session using characters Arslan, the Prince of Pars, and his protector Daryun. The demo will also let players use the game’s new moves and powers, such as the “Mardan Rush” and “Weapon Arts” special attacks.
Additionally, Koei Tecmo announced a new “Free Mode” feature. Here are some details:
As anyone who has watched The Heroic Legend of Arslan will know, Narsus’s page Elam is a culinary genius, and his cooking often delights his co-travelers during their quest. This gastronomic side of Elam’s has now been incorporated into the battle preparations!
During the course of the game, players can locate and collect recipe books hidden throughout the story mode. These can be used in Free Mode prior to battle to give the controlled character an ability boost. The various foods, such as Lamb Skewers, Stewed Chicken, and Potluck Soup can provide different effects such as increased health, attack boosts, healing, bonus gold, bonus experience, and more!
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One via retail, and PlayStation 3 via download, on February 9 in North America and February 12 in Europe.
