Valkyria Chronicles 4

Digital pre-orders for Valkyria Chronicles 4 are now available across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and a PC, and a free demo is now available on consoles.

Digital pre-orders include the downloadable side mission “A Captainless Squad,” in which a group of Squad E soldiers find themselves on an impromptu reconnaissance operation after the squad’s medic dog Ragnarok goes missing. This mission will be available to play in the game on day one for anyone who digitally pre-orders the game, and will also be available as a standalone add-on item in late October for $4.99.

Additionally, PlayStation Store pre-orders will include a PlayStation 4 theme and avatar set.

Here is an overview of the demo, via Sega:

In the Valkyria Chronicles 4 Demo, available now as a free download on the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Nintendo Switch eShop, you’ll join Commander Claude Wallace and his comrades in Squad E as they begin the first steps of Operation Northern Cross. Experience the series’ signature watercolor aesthetic as presented by the CANVAS Engine and get a feel for the innovative tactical BLiTZ system before the full game launches on September 25. Play through the prologue and first two chapters of the game, as well as an exclusive bonus mission created for the demo. Demo save data, including items obtained, class levels, earned experience, and currency total will transfer over to the full game, so you can pick up right where you left off. Additionally, importing save data from the demo will net you an exclusive accessory for use in the full game.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on September 25 in the Americas and Europe.
