BANDAI NAMCO has announced that God Eater 3 will be coming to PC and PS4. New gameplay details emerged alongside the announcement of the latest entry in the monster slaying Action RPG series. The publisher placed a spotlight on new world regions called The Ashlands, new gameplay systems, and a new type of God Arcs; the Biting Edge and Ray Gun.
The Ashlands are new uninhabitable regions in the game which have forced humanity to live in underground shelters called Ports. Within the Ashlands are fierce new Ash Aragami such as Anubis and Ra, which provide new challenges for God Eaters.
The Biting Edge God Arc is a dual-bladed weapon that focuses on quick slashes and stabbing attacks. The Ray Gun, on the other hand, provides an extremely strong ranged attack when timed correctly. God Eater 3 also introduces the Engage System and Accelerator Trigger. The Engage System activates when teammates stay close to each other during missions. This helps promote close teamwork when striking Aragami. The Accelerator Trigger is a new passive skill that is activated with certain requirements such as performing a perfect guard.
There's also new God Eaters which are closer to Aragami than God Eaters in the past, making them stronger and deadlier in combat, while also resistant to the Ashlands deadly air. One of these new Adaptive God Eaters is Hugo Pennywort. Quick-witted Hugo is a substantial leader and a man of action. The protagonist and Hugo grew up together and consider each other brothers.
The new details come alongside a brand new trailer (which you can check out below) showing the game, and its new characters, in action. No further details are given as to when players can get their hands on God Eater 3, so stay tuned for more updates as we get them.
