The previous consoles generation has brought a brand new adventure genre with the likes of Monster Hunter and Toukiden. In these kind of games players fill the shoes of a monster slayer hero exploring wild surroundings.
God Eater is another Japanese made game that fits in this category. It started with a 2010 PSP release, which was followed by a sequel and a PS4/PS Vita port. Today Namco Bandai finally sheds some light on a third installment, a year since its TGS 2016 teaser. Currently no release platform has been shared, though it is most likely to launch on PS4 with a PC release to follow in the future.
The publisher included a short synopsis in its press release:
Earth no longer resembles the home we know of now. The Aragami, terrifying beasts that live only to consume, are carving a path of destruction and misery wherever they are encountered. To combat this threat an elite group of heroes known as God Eaters are called upon to save humanity. God Eaters are individuals who have been bestowed upon them the ability to wield powerful new God Arcs, special weapons powered by Oracle Cells and the only known weapons capable of destroying the monstrous Aragami. However, another mission is coming into focus; something is happening to the God Eaters and the line between light and dark has never been so thin. It’s time to start breaking free from the cursed shackles that bind the souls of the God Eaters as the battle rages on around them.
