'Star Ocean: The Last Hope' (ALL) Gets 4K/HD Remaster On PS4 And PC - Screens

Science fiction and fantasy meld in this continuation of tri-Ace Inc.'s RPG franchise. The refined gameplay features team-oriented combat, while improving upon the innovative real-time battle system that has become a trademark of the Star Ocean franchise.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope takes players on an epic journey across the universe in an immersive, intergalactic story of survival where humanity must turn to the stars in search of a new home.

The year is A.D. 2087. In the aftermath of World War III, Earth has been ravaged and the population decimated by a deteriorating environment. The countries that survived join together to form the Greater Unified Nations and turn their eyes upwards…to space.

Edge Maverick and his childhood friend Reimi Saionji are chosen as pioneer members of the Space Reconnaissance Force, which was created to seek out new worlds beyond the stars. Their ship, designation SRF-003, takes its place on the lunar launch pad along with four other starships of the first reconnaissance fleet. These ships – humanity’s last hope – blast off one-by-one and sail into the awaiting wormhole that leads to the vast star ocean.

And so, Edge and his crew begin their voyage in search of a new haven for humanity...and a second chance.


Star Ocean: The Last Hope takes place at the beginning of the Star Ocean series timeline and is a full HD remaster with added 4K support and PC keyboard, mouse and controller support.

Featuring strategic real-time combat, the remastered title also keeps the original deep Item Creation System and Private Action system that explores character relationships and subplots for a richer and more rewarding story, and exhilarating Blindside battle system, which fuses evasion and offense.

The game will be released digitally from the PlayStation Store and PC (Steam) for $20.99. Until December 12th, PlayStation Plus members and PC (Steam) users who purchase the game will receive a 10% discount. Additionally, those who purchase on STEAM before December 12th will receive an exclusive downloadable mini-soundtrack featuring music from the game. Those who purchase from the PlayStation Store before January 8th, will receive an exclusive PS4 theme and 12 PlayStation Network avatars featuring the main characters.
