'Batora: Lost Haven' Coming To All Platforms In Fall 2022 - Trailer

by Rainier on May 11, 2022 @ 2:39 p.m. PDT

Built on a rich Action RPG foundation, Batora follows Avril - a regular 16-year old girl, not a natural born hero - as she realises, after losing everything she cares for, that she is the only one who can save a dying planet Earth from oblivion.

This is how her interplanetary adventure starts: along this journey she will visit colorful and mysterious planets and meet intriguing characters - and she will learn that every choice has a consequence.

Far from a standard aRPG game, Batora: Lost Haven is based on the duality between mind and body, introducing a new game mechanic that challenges players to find the perfect balance between the two - losing sight of one could mean that their journey is over. Batora doesn't present the hero's journey in black or white, good or evil: there are decisions and there are their consequences. Every single decision Avril makes will turn out to be important, often even life-changing, for the characters she meets or the places she visits.

The duality of the lead character is also one of Batora's most unique features with players required to use the "switch mechanic" to alternate between their physical and mental states. Learning the right time to strike or not be struck and in which state to do so will present a considerable challenge to even the most experienced players.


Key Features:

  • Action-packed cosmic adventure:Embark on an enthralling sci-fi journey across the stars to explore alien home worlds, interact with a variety of unique beings, and uncover the secrets to save a dying Earth 
  • Reactive, non-linear storytelling: Your choices decide the fate of the universe and those who inhabit it. Consider your actions and forge your path as Conqueror or Defender in a rich, choice-driven story designed by a Writers’ Guild award winner

  • Unique ‘Nature Switch’ mechanic: Balance your mental and physical powers to solve rewarding environmental challenges and overcome hostile adversaries 
  • Beautiful retro sci-fi art style: Explore colourful and diverse alien landscapes with hand-painted visuals inspired by 1950s retro science fiction
