Unleash the full power of your PlayStation with graphically-stunning Chinese mythology-based action RPG
Hong Kong – August 4th, 2022 – Independent developer and publisher Eastasiasoft Limited are delighted to announce that their Chinese mythology-based action RPG Sword and Fairy: Together Forever, a brand new standalone entry in the storied franchise, is out now on PS5™ and PS4™, available as digital standard and digital premium editions.
With stunning visuals that deliver a rich world to immerse yourself in along with stunning combat encounters, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever has won praise from the likes of Digital Foundry for its impressive graphics: “many characters are accentuated with cloth or hair physics to accentuate their movement in ways which make the game a joy to look at - especially in combat where the animations are delightfully over the top,” commented Alex Battaglia, video producer for Eurogamer.net. “I'm really happy to have discovered the Sword and Fairy series - and this seventh series entry really has much to commend it.”
With its beginnings in 1995, the Sword and Fairy RPG series has captured the hearts and imagination of Chinese-speaking players for decades. Today, harnessing the full power of the PlayStation, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever advances mechanics and graphics presentation into the next generation. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever features intense real-time combat and vast detailed environments to explore, complemented by the depth and engaging storytelling that has defined the franchise since its inception. This is a standalone RPG epic that can be enjoyed equally by long-time fans or newcomers without prior knowledge of the series, one that Eastasiasoft Limited is exceptionally proud to bring to new audiences worldwide.
Be swept away by an intricate tale grounded in Chinese mythology where you will meet a cast of memorable characters who each have their own unique backstory, motivations and personalities. Between the clans of humans, deities and demons on the brink of war, heroism and villainy are often a matter of perspective rather than black-and-white morality. Not every hero is selfless, and not every villain is purely evil. It’s up to young deity Xiu Wu, human swordswoman Yue Qingshu and their newfound allies to fight for what they believe and find a way to prevent open war between the realms, protect peace and shape the world’s future for the greater good despite their differences.
Sword and Fairy: Together Forever was originally developed by Softstar Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. Eastasiasoft Limited is publishing digitally in the west. Sword and Fairy: Together Forever is available in two digital versions in a Standard and Premium edition. The Standard Edition available at US$39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99 features the PS4/PS5 game and a modern style outfits add-on, whilst the Premium Edition available at US$49.99 / €49.99 / £39.99 features the PS4/PS5 game, modern style outfits add-on, digital soundtrack, dynamic themes (PS4 only) and 4 avatars.
Sword and Fairy: Together Forever also will be available at North America retailers in early 2023 including premium physical editions at US$49.99 and a Premium Collector's Edition at US$99.99, produced in partnership with Serenity Forge. European physical release will follow at a later date.
