'Valkyrie Elysium' Gets PS4/PS5 and PC Release Dates, Pre-Order Incentives - Screens & Trailer

Valkyrie Elysium is an action/RPG that draws on the richness of Norse mythology to present an original story set in a world on the brink of destruction, full of danger and fast-paced combat.

The Valkyrie series depicts the end of humanity and their encounters with gods, through a unique world inspired by Norse mythology. It all started with Valkyrie Profile for the original PlayStation way back in 1999 (released in 2000 for North America), with subsequent entries appearing on PlayStation 2, as well as handheld and mobile platforms.

The original games were praised by fans and critics for their innovative RPG gameplay, rich world and stories and incredible soundtracks by the legendary Motoi Sakuraba.

These elements are present and correct in the next entry, Valkyrie Elysium, which features an original story, set in a world that teeters on the brink of destruction along with bold new ideas that make the game feel exciting and modern. Valkyrie Elysium is an action-RPG featuring an epic story, beautiful environments, and a new fast-paced combat system that combines strategy, action, and a unique combo system that will test your ability to think and react.

You play as a Valkyrie who is entrusted with the fate of this world by the All-Father - the highest among gods and the ruler of all creation. Descending to the land below, you must battle powerful foes, and uncover the secrets behind the impending ruin.

To take on the many dangers of this world, you’ll engage in fast-paced combat, using a variety of weapons and magical abilities to triumph over your adversaries. The game’s dynamic combat system fuses features from across the series, such as finishing moves and combos, with a brand new real-time action combat system that rewards both fast reactions and strategic thinking.

Like previous games, you’ll also be able to recruit the Einherjar - warriors who’ll join the hero and fight at her side when summoned!

Valkyrie Elysium  will be available as a physical and digital Standard Edition on PS5 and PS4, with a digital-only Standard Edition available on PC via STEAM. A Digital Deluxe Edition will also be available on all platforms.
The PS5 and PS4 Digital Deluxe Editions include the following:

  • 72-hour early access to the full game
  • In-game item “Svartaljr: Sword of the Goddess of the Underworld"
  • A digital version of Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth (PS4/5 version), the beloved first entry in the Valkyrie series available at last on modern consoles.
The Steam Digital Deluxe Edition includes an in-game item, “Svartaljr: Sword of the Goddess of the Underworld."
Squae Enix have also offered pre-order bonuses for each platform, as follows:
