Tactics Ogre: Reborn Shows Warren Report, Side Content
Square Enix released some final details and screenshots for Tactics Ogre: Reborn ahead of the tactical RPG’s launch this week. The update details the in-game Warren Report and some of its side content, as well as showing some monster classes.
The Warren Report is a chronicle of events, people, and locations in the land of Valeria. It is accessible as an in-game database, including profiles of characters as well as some additional gameplay information. It also contains access to events that cannot be found elsewhere, while information found within it can unlock new locations.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn includes plenty of optional side and challenge content, often focusing on combat. Winning some of these optional battles can cause new stages to appear on the map, with some of those that appear differing — such as the enemies or treasure rewards — depending on which story route players are on. Completing the side content will give players money, items, and let players recruit additional party members such as ghosts, faeries, and dragons.
One of the optional locations is the Phorampa Wildwood. It is a vast forest with tough terrain and provides access to classes otherwise unobtainable in the early parts of the game. Elsewhere, the Palace of the Dead is unlocked after meeting certain conditions, and is filled with powerful enemies. It includes special events and is said to hold a secret within its seemingly endless depths. The Pirate’s Graveyard is a collection of adrift shipwrecks, said to be home to vast treasures but none who have entered in search of the treasure has returned. Some dungeons will reward players with items called relics. These have different properties to normal items. Players will come across relics with the same name, but different properties. These can be combined to upgrade their stats and create more powerful versions.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn is based on the PlayStation Portable remake of the original Super Famicom Tactics Ogre title. The Reborn version of the game features high-definition graphics, gameplay adjustments, fully voiced cutscenes in English and Japanese, and a full orchestral re-recording of the game’s soundtrack. Tactics Ogre: Reborn is planned to release worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on November 11, 2022.
