Sea of Stars launch trailer prepares players for the game's release next week

Sabotage Studios is preparing to launch its upcoming retro-inspired large-scale RPG, Sea of Stars. In commemoration of the game's release next week, the developer shared a new trailer with further details on one of this year's most awaited indie. 

The launch trailer gives fans an extended look at the gorgeous world inhabited by the Children of the Solstice, including the game's leading heroes Valere, a Lunar Monk, and Zale, a Solar Blade Dancer, along their quest to defeat the creations of an evil alchemist known as The Fleshmancer unfolds this unforgettable story of a grand journey through a breathtaking world full of surprises, delights, friendship, betrayal, and conquest.



But the Solstice Warriors will not be alone in their quest - the trailer surprises fans with a new playable character: Seraï, a deadly assassin with the ability to carve portals with her razor-sharp daggers and surprise enemies when they least expect it. And, of course, there is the good old Garl, the lovable warrior cook with a heart as big as his smile. Each of these dynamic characters plays an intricate role in the lives of Valere and Zale on their journey as fate unfolds in this mystical, magical world.

A classic turn-based RPG

Sea of Stars is the next game of Sabotage Studios, the studio that took the world by storm with its platformer, The Messenger. This RPG will bring an unshackled traversal, where you can swim, climb, vault, jump off or hoist up ledges as you traverse seamlessly through the world with a navigation system based on platformer expertise that breaks free from the classic bound-to-the-grid tileset movement. 

The combat will be turn-based but featuring timed hits - as seen in Super Mario RPG - dual-character combo attacks, boosting, and a strategic "locks" system offering options to play with different damage types in order to hinder enemies while they are channeling powerful attacks or spells, all in an immersive take on the genre; no random encounters, no transitions to separate battlefields, and no grinding.

If you want to see for yourself what Sea of Stars has to offer, you can check out the demo available on most platforms. But for those convinced of the game's proposal, you can get the full game when it releases on August 29 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Playstation 4|5, and Steam.
