Tales of Arise, the latest entry in the JRPG series developed by Bandai Namco, is getting expanded in a little over a month with the Beyond the Dawn expansion.
Announced during yesterday’s State of Play, the DLC expansion will be a continuation of the main story, and it will be the first one in the series to come with such a scale, according to General Producer Yusuke Tomizawa, as it will take around 20 hours for players to explore the united world.
While the Tales of Arise: Beyond the Dawn expansion will require the base game, players won’t have to worry about maxing out characters in the main adventure. Levels and skills will not carry over from the base game, but players will be provided with bonuses based on the clear data of the base game. The game system hasn’t changed much over the base game as well, but there will likely be some tweaks, judging from similar expansions released for previous entries in the series.
Tales of Arise: Beyond the Dawn launches on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One on November 9th. You can learn more about the base game by checking out my review.
With its engaging story, dark atmosphere, charming characters, and excellent combat, Tales of Arise provides an experience that feels both new and familiar at the same time, making for a game that both long-time fans and newcomers will enjoy. While the excessive linearity and the removal of multiplayer will disappoint some, the pros far outweigh the cons, making Tales of Arise one of the best entries in the series to date.
