TOKYO – Aug. 28 – Caravan Stories, the anime-inspired MMORPG played by more than 2 million adventurers in Japan, completes its journey to the West and launches on PlayStation 4 in North America Sept. 10.
Travel across the vast, beautiful world of Iyarr recruiting heroes and taming monsters. Explore haunting ruins, mystical forests, and awe-inspiring cities rendered in gorgeous watercolor tones. Gather strength to face threats: from challenging dungeons and open-world raids to ferocious foes that only emerge at certain times of day.
A monolithic structure appears above Iyarr. This mysterious threat—known as Enigma—manifests a portal from which chaos pours forth. Before the realm succumbs to shadow, heroes from the six races of Iyarr must stand together and push back the tides of darkness.
Master engaging real-time combat by building a party well-suited for Iyarr’s many dangers. A recruited NPC’s weakness can be complemented by the strength of a tamed monster. Defensive characters, ranged attackers, magic casters, and every role in-between must act in concert to win the day. Players can even tame real-world animals like dogs and cats. With nearly 300 unique heroes and beasts available to recruit, no two players will experience battles the same way.
Party management is key, but every journey demands a well-equipped caravan. These magical fortresses serve as a progression hub. Players can customize their caravan’s look, unlock weapon and armor crafting, create resource generators like gold and crystal pumps, and provide backup in battle with cannons and other armaments. Combine forces with other players, testing the party and caravan against legendary enemies.
“We’ve poured years into perfecting the world of Caravan Stories,” said Masahiko Takeuchi, PS4 Game Director, Aiming Inc. “Our new release date gave us enough extra time to fine-tune the experience for adventurers to begin writing their stories. We’re eager to see the tales our players write with their friends as they begin their journeys through Iyarr.”
Caravan Stories will be free-to-play on PlayStation 4 in North America, supporting English text and Japanese audio. To stay connected with the world of Caravan Stories, visit the official website and follow Caravan Stories on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Twitch, and Discord.
