As promised by Bandai Namco, a demo for their upcoming RPG Tales of Berseria, is now available for download on the PlayStation Network and Steam in North America.

This demo will give players a chance to see what’s in store for them in the full version release of Tales of Berseria, when it is released on January 24, 2017, on PSN and on January 26, 2017, on Steam. It’s worth mentioning that the Steam version will run at 60fps by default, with 30fps being selectable. It also includes both 1080p and 4K (upscaled) support, yes, it will use Denuvo for DRM.

In TALES OF BERSERIA, players embark on a journey of self-discovery as they assume the role off Velvet Crowe, whose once kind demeanor has been replaced and overcome with a festering anger and hatred after a traumatic experience three years prior to the events within the game. Velvet will join a crew of pirates as they sail across the sea and visit the many islands that make up the sacred kingdom of Midgand in an all-new adventure developed by the celebrated team behind the TALES OF series.

• Fight alongside 5 comrades and unravel their secrets and skills
• Set out and explore the stunning, ever-changing landscapes of Midgand Kingdom
• Feed on the strength of your enemies and strike with this evolved battle system
• Discover even more of the world with side-quests and fun mini-games

I’ve heard good things about Tales of Berseria from the Japanese release. Famitsu awarded the game 35/40, while other websites also reviewed the game highly. That being said, I’m eagerly looking forward to playing both the demo and the full game when it’s released.

The PlayStation Network demo can be found here, while Steam/PC users can access the demo here.
