Lost Eidolons Closed Beta Running This Week
Ocean Drive Studio announced that its closed beta for tactical RPG Lost Eidolons will begin on September 30, 2021. Access will begin at 6am Pacific (9am Eastern) and run until October 6, 2021. 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. 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.
