Way of the Samurai 4 release date moved back

Hi everyone. I’m afraid that I’m going to have to start with some disappointing news.  Unfortunately Way of the Samurai 4 is not going to be ready for release on Steam this month as originally planned.  To put it simply, the technical issues we’ve encountered in fixing some of the recently reported bugs have proved more problematic than we had expected and so we’ve had to move the release back.  We recognise that many of you will find this news very frustrating and whilst I’m sure it’s no consolation to you all, it’s incredibly frustrating for us.  Please rest assured that our best guys are on the case and we’re doing everything we can to get this game ready for you all.

We’re currently looking to get the game out towards the end of March and as soon as these technical problems are resolved I’ll firm up the release date for you all.

Moving on to the Agarest series, I thought I’d remind you all that as it’s now a week since the release of Agarest: Generations of War 2, the discounts on all three Agarest Steam releases will be ending later today (if they haven’t already).  So, make sure you hurry to the Steam Store, where you can save 20% on Agarest 250% on Agarest Zero and a massive 75% on Agarest.

While we’re on the subject of Agarest, earlier this week we released a patch for Agarest 2 which fixes some of the issues that have cropped up since launch.

Finally, I thought I’d let you all know that our friends at Laughing Jackal, the team behind our Steam ports, have recently announced a Vita release date for their amazing-looking PS Vita firefighting action roguelike Flame Over.  If you’d like to know more, head over to the Laughing Jackal blog for more details on the release and a new Let’s Play video, showing the game in action. Flame Over will also be coming to PS4 and Steam in Q2 2015, so all the more reason to check it out!

That’s all from me.  I’ll be back next week, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our  Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight?

Agarest: Generations of War 2 is out now

I’m thrilled to say that Agarest: Generations of War 2 is out now on Steam! If you’ve pre-purchased the game then it should now be available to download from your Steam library.

If you’ve not already bought the game then never fear, the 20% discount (with an additional 13% reduction if you own either of the previous Agarest games) doesn’t expire until next Thursday. That means there’s still time to pick Agarest 2 up for just £11.99 (or even less!) rather than the full price of £14.99. So, hurry over to the Agarest 2 Steam Store page to take advantage of this great offer.

Since it seemed like a shame to only cut the price of one Agarest game on Steam, and since we’re in a celebratory mood, we’ve also slashed the Steam price of Agarest: Generations of War by a massive 75% & Agarest: Generations of War Zero by 50%, in both cases this discount also applies to the DLC. The offer lasts for just one week, so be sure to head to the Steam Store to grab those savings while you can!

That’s all from me.  I’ll be back next week, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our  Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight?

Agarest 2 released tomorrow!

Hello everyone!

Well, the big day is nearly upon us!  Tomorrow you’ll finally be able to get your hands on the mighty PC version of Agarest: Generations of War 2!

This third instalment in the Agarest series was previously only available on PlayStation®3 but now comes to STEAM with a host of new features and improvements making this what we think is the best version of Agarest 2 to date. :)

While this is obviously excellent news, it does mean that time is short if you want to score our sweet pre-purchase bonus - which expires on the game’s release - and get access to three extra characters absolutely free!  And just as a reminder, there’s also a very healthy 20% off the retail price, with an additional 13% reduction if you own either of the previous Agarest games, bringing your total discount to a very generous 33% off!  This discount will be only be available during the pre-purchase period and first week of release, so make sure you head to the Agarest 2 Steam Store Page and pre-purchase the game now! :)

Once again I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to our band of beta testers who’ve been a massive help in getting the game ready for release.  And, of course, thanks again to our friends at Laughing Jackal, who’ve managed to get the game running at 60fps (at least on my machine!) :)

More on Agarest: Generations of War 2

Agarest: Generations of War 2 is set in a parallel world to the previous two Agarest titles and has a completely new multi generational story and universe to explore.  So while existing fans of the series will of course see some familiar features and faces popping up, newer players will not need to have played the previous games to understand and enjoy this instalment of the story.

…One day, the world was enveloped by a mysterious blinding light causing terrible destruction.  The central continent, from where the light is believed to have originated, fell silent and slowly, demons began to emerge and spread throughout the world like a plague.

Sometime afterwards, a young man by the name of Weiss, suffering from amnesia, encounters the enigmatic Eva who tells him that he has committed the sin of deicide.  In order to atone for his crime he learns that he must become the "Vessel" in which the power of the divinity he slaughtered is to be stored.  This power will be used to resurrect the one whose life Weiss stole, for those who betray the divine will pay for their sins in the space which separates salvation and damnation, as will their progeny...

  • New Agarest Universe: Roam freely and watch the story unfold in this newly designed Universe and battle colossal enemies in over 80hrs of compelling gameplay!
  • Revamped Battle System:  Engage your ultimate warriors in a new faster paced combat system with real tactical depth and a wealth of character customisation
  • HD Graphics: Enjoy the all-new environments, CGs and your favourite animated character portraits in stunning high-definition
  • Mini-games: Engage in Bathtub, Shiatsu, and Massage mini-games!
  • Soul Breeding Returns: See your favourite heroines evolve over several decades through each passing generation
  • Choose Your Path:  It’s not just the heroines you unite with but also the choices you make that will significantly change the outcome of the story.

This new version of Agarest 2 has full mouse/keyboard and gamepad support, Steam achievements, higher resolutions and a number of other user interface changes.  Cloud Saves are also supported as are Steam trading cards, backgrounds and icons, while a wealth of DLC is included in the game completely free of charge with other packs available to purchase separately following release.  Plus the new DLC system gives you control over how your downloaded content is managed, enabling you to pick and choose how it is added to your existing saves.

That’s all from me.  I’ll be back soon, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our  Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight?
