Lost Eidolons Closed Beta Applications Open
Ocean Drive Studio has opened applications for the closed beta to its tactical RPG Lost Eidolons. The beta program is known as the Benerio Grand Company and interested players can apply through a dedicated form. Those who supported the game’s Kickstarter campaign at the requisite levels and who took part in its Steam Next Fest demo focus group are already included. More details are available on the developer’s website. There are expected to be three closed beta phases before the game is made available on Steam Early Access in 2022.
Lost Eidolons is set on the continent of Artemesia. Formerly home to seven kingdoms, the entire continent now falls under the dominion of Emperor Ludivictus. Players control Eden, a mercenary from the village of Lonetta, who becomes involved in the rising flames of rebellion. The game features grid-based combat that makes use of terrain and unit positioning, with players able to recruit new characters by raising affinity with NPCs and improve existing party members through training and sidequests.
