Valkyria Chronicles 4 deploying onto the PS4, Xbox One, Switch in 2018


The game is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with its release planned for sometime in 2018.

Valkyria Revolution was a big disappointment, but SEGA is hoping to put things right with yet another mainline release in its Valkyria Chronicles franchise.

The Return of a Legendary Composer - The illustrious Hitoshi Sakimoto, original composer of the Valkyria Chronicles series and countless other emotional epics, returns to provide a sweeping orchestral soundtrack for the game.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is the first game in the series that is a direct sequel and not a different story set in the same universe. Now, Sega is expanding their lineup, and they're starting with one of their most-loved series - Valkyria Chronicles. Players will take control of a group of soldiers defending against the Imperial army in battles that blends turn-based strategy and third-person gunplay.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be set in the same timeframe as the original Valkyria Chronicles, but with a new cast of characters and story.

The first thing that we know is that when the game first hits Japan, there will be a special edition released called the Valkyria Chronicles 10th Anniversary Memorial Pack. Commander Claude Wallace and his childhood friends make up Squad E as they venture into Imperial territory only to find themselves faced with both an Imperial counterattack and a bitter early winter.

The publisher is yet to confirm a release date but it does say that the title will be out at some point in 2018.
