“The continent of Europa is engulfed in the flames of the Second Europan War between the Atlantic Federation and the Autocratic Eastern Imperial Alliance. Although the Federation struggles valiantly against the Empire’s forces, the relentless imperial military machine threatens to consume them. With victory slipping away, the Federation executes Operation Northern Cross: a last-ditch attempt to capture the imperial capital and end the war.
Commander Claude Wallace and his loyal childhood friends in Squad E are sent to fight for the desperate operation’s success, but they will have to endure harsh bone-chilling elements, waves of imperial soldiers, and the terrifying Valkyria… and unravel a grave truth that will shake them to the core.”

Valkyria Chronicles 4 Official RELEASE DATES:
Arguably one of the best turn-based strategy franchises ever to exist, Valkyria Chronicles will receive it’s fourth installment shooting to the Nintendo Switch next year. Playing on the go with one of the world’s most unique takes on the RPG genre, Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Nintendo Switch warrants one of SEGA’s most compelling partnerships with Nintendo to date. Gamers who rock a PlayStation 4 (and PS4Pro) or Xbox ONE (and Xbox ONE X) home console can also get in on the action.
Hopefully the fourth installment could also get a PC release date eventually. It’s likely that SEGA is attempting to garner all the console sales they can before allowing piracy to take its chunk out as it does with all titles that come to the PC platform (although not as badly since Steam continues to get better and easier to use as well as more and more popular). For that we don’t blame them but if the franchise can do well enough then a Steam version certainly should be in order some day – for a truly high quality version of the game.
As for me personally, I’m still enjoying Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on my PlayStation 4 Pro console. SEGA has launched an official website HERE which will continue to be updated with more Valkyria Chronicles 4 information, and above is their Full HD Announcement Trailer. Below are some Valkyria Chronicles 4 Official Screenshots:
Check out an excerpt from the Official Announcement below:
Valkyria Chronicles 4 Features:
A Coming-of-Age Story in a Time of War – Valkyria Chronicles 4 takes place in the same time frame as the original Valkyria Chronicles, but focuses on a whole new cast of main characters. Players will take command of the eager, young Commander Claude Wallace, engineer/heavy weapons ‘extraordinaire’ Riley Miller, hotheaded Darcsen Raz, ice-cold ace sniper Kai Schulen, and more. Together, they will experience the painful realities of war–but will the bonds of Squad E’s friendships survive the frozen battlefield?
The Next Generation “BLiTZ” Battle System – The part overhead turn-based strategy, part RPG, and part real-time 3rd person shooter “BLiTZ” battle system returns to the field. New features include an explosive new class called the Grenadier, numerous offensive/defensive battleship support options, chances for a unit to have a “Last Stand” action before death, and more. Plus, fight the imperial threat with more units on larger-scale maps than ever before.
CANVAS Aesthetics – The series’ signature hand-drawn visual style is back and overhauled for the newest generation. Inspired by watercolor compositions, the CANVAS Graphics Engine blends visual elements of reality and imagination to create an expressive world filled with colorful emotions. Watch the journey of Squad E unfold like an interactive painting!
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.

*Update: Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies Private Beta
PS4: Aug. 25 – Aug. 28
PS4 & XBOX ONE: Sept. 01 – Sept. 04
Pre-Order purchases for Call of Duty: WWII will give players access to a Private Beta period of the Nazi Zombies mode which was world premiered this weekend by Activision and Sledgehammer Games. The Private Beta begins on August 25, 2017 on PlayStation 4 and other platforms “to follow” …meaning you’ll have to wait a little bit if you aren’t playing on PS4. The fine print states that the minimum time the exclusivity of the Pre-Order Beta period will run is for 3 days and that dates and time frames are all subject to change, as with most beta testing. The full beta will probably run a bit longer than that, likely with pre-order folks gaining access to later waves of the Beta – details of which will follow in the coming weeks at COD Beta website.
COD:WWII releases November 3, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox ONE, and Windows PC via Steam and features a full campaign story mode, multiplayer war mode, division mode, headquarters mode, and the recently revealed Nazi Zombies mode below.
Nazi Zombies Reveal Trailer of Call of Duty: WWII is presented by our friends at GamersPrey in Full HD 1080P at 60fps. *Editor’s Note: YouTube may adjust settings depending on your device capabilities and internet bandwidth, click the gear to manually select a quality setting to view the video at.
A stark contrast to the recent controversy of missing Nazi symbolism in the WWII multiplayer, the Zombies mode of Call of Duty: WWII will have no hesitation in featuring such, let’s hope that means we’re getting a semi-authentic story mode campaign as well. A group of brothers in arms and even a female soldier are also confirmed among the supporting characters for the title, and will perhaps serve as a temporary protagonists during certain acts or period of the game’s story-line as seen often in the COD series. This game is based on the United States Army’s 1st Infantry division operations in Europe and selects 1945 as its setting with a lead character who is a young soldier coming to grips with war named Ronald “Red” Daniels.
Bandai Namco, who makes the Arcade verisons of Mario Kart, has announced a new title. Mario Kart: Arcade GP VR.
