Lost Eidolons Pre-Release Schedule Adjusted
Ocean Drive Studio announced some changes for its pre-release plans for tactical RPG Lost Eidolons. Previously expected to receive two beta tests before an Early Access release, the game will now forego the Early Access version, with the two planned beta tests being pushed back.
The next beta test will be available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S and is expected in Q2 2022. It will not include additional story chapters over the previous beta test, but will include numerous gameplay improvements. The final beta test is planned for Q3 2022 and will include additional story chapters and content. A full release is currently expected in late Q3 2022, with a recent developer stream showing some of the recent adjustments made to the game viewable below.
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.
