Toukiden 2: Free Alliances Version, a free-to-play version of the action RPG, heads to the PS4 in May, Koei Tecmo today announced.
The game will be similar to the full version of Toukiden 2, though the free-to-play version limits players to Group Missions offered through the Command Centre. Each mission will have a Stamina Cost associated with it, meaning players will only be able to play missions when they’ve Stamina to spare.
“Stamina is a key part of Toukiden 2: Free Alliances Version, as it allows players to explore and carry out missions in the surrounding areas of Maharoba Village,” Koei Tecmo said in a press release. “Each player starts with a Stamina Level of 3, and each unit of Stamina requires eight real-time hours to replenish. To dive straight back into the action without the wait, players can spend Gems purchasable at the Slayer’s Headquarters (via the PlayStation Store).
“Not only can Gems recover Stamina to its maximum value, but they can also be used to increase the Stamina Level to a maximum of 8. Further upgrades are also possible to the Equipment and Material Chests which allow for an abundance of items to be stored, as well as the ability to draw Mitama Tickets. These tickets are used to obtain the souls of fallen heroes which provide new combat possibilities when applied to armour and weaponry.”
Toukiden 2: Free Alliances Version will also let players experience the first chapter of the full game’s main campaign. Save data from Free Alliances can be imported into the full version if a purchase is made.
Toukiden 2 is available now on PS4, and Toukiden 2: Free Alliances Version heads to PS4 on 31 May.
