Join gaming leaders, alongside GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming, for their 2nd Annual GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 this upcoming January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event. 

Star Ocean: The Divine Force debuted during today’s Sony State of Play. It will come out in 2022 for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

The Star Ocean series started in 1996. It’s a franchise of action RPGs from Square Enix. While most Japanese RPGs have fantasy influences, Star Ocean is a sci-fi affair. Think anime meets Star Trek.

The Divine Force will be the sixth entry in the series. It’s the first Star Ocean since Integrity and Faithlessness’s release in 2016.

You can watch the reveal trailer above.
