Players will command the Vanargand anti-Valkyria squad, an elite force from Jutland, against the Ruzi Empire. Armed with mana-infused weapons and schooled in ragnite-fueled spells, the squad, led by Jutland’s Princess Ophelia, must free those suffering under the empire. A trailer and handful of screenshots were also released, along with information on the Vanargand Edition. Pre-orders and first-run copies will come with a themed pin, a 12-song soundtrack by Chrono Trigger’s Yasunori Mitsuda, and a collectable outer box.

Prey’s previous video covered the various alien types running amok on Talos I, and today, it’s your turn. Well, Morgan Yu’s turn, the game’s protagonist, along with the choices he will have to make and people he will meet on the station. Or she, as ‘Only Yu Can Save the World’ notes, players can decide Morgan’s gender. The video also covers the various powers and weapons at the player’s disposal, which will alter their progress, as they awaken as something of a blank slate.

Dead Rising 4 will be received a new single-player add-on next month. Frank Rising, scheduled to launch on April 4, finds Frank amidst a new outbreak in Willamette, only this time he’s one of the infected.

Releasing this spring, players will unlock special golf clubs, balls, and costumes, while Frank comments on his swings. Power-ups will also tweak the rules as players go solo or try for the highest score with four friends online or in local turn-based co-op. Both drops are part of the season pass.
