The End is near! (dun duuuun) The enigmatic final boss has made his to Earth in Atlus and Lancarse’s new tactical role-playing game Lost Dimension. Available for PS3 and PS Vita, the turn-based strategy game not only mixes in light role-playing elements via skill trees and varied gear, but it also has a slight twist: traitors. As players ascend a large pillar, they must choose which of their squad is a turncoat in order to progress. If they fail, then they will have to face the traitors before taking on The End, but if they succeed, they will immediately square off against him with a full squad. Experience won’t help, either, as traitors are random for each playthrough. As a bonus, $20 worth of free costume and level DLC is downloadable for free for two weeks.
