Arc of Alchemist Game's Video Highlights 'Desert of Beginnings' Setting
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Compile Heart's Arc of Alchemist PlayStation 4 role-playing game began streaming a "setting" video for the game on Friday. The video elaborates on the game's setting, a far future Earth where multiple wars have drained the planet's resources and transformed it into a desert where the surviving humans fight over what little resources remain, even as they face extinction. An object named the "Great Power" is said to be able to save humanity, and resides in the Desert of Beginnings. But the desert itself is a dangerous land, crawling with rogue machines, deadly lifeforms, and traps that ward people away.
The game ships in Japan on November 29.
Illustrator Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy, Vampire Hunter D) is serving as the game's concept artist, Kyoji Koizumi (The Alliance Alive, SaGa series) is designing the game's system, Yukinori Kitajima (Senran Kagura, Hamatora) is writing the scenario, and Mota is designing the characters.
