Spike Chunsoft has shared new gameplay details regarding their upcoming action RPG, Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness.
The original main character joins Belchero Orphanage as a new “Bell” Cave Raider, attending classes and training with three other students, Raul, Tiare, and Dorothea. They eventually initiate their first day of exploration as “Red Whistles,” though they quickly learn the harsh realities of the Abyss.
The “DEEP IN ABYSS” mode is essentially a dungeon crawler, with relic collection, quest completion, and earned rewards to empower the main character. As higher levels are gained, the deeper realms of the Abyss can be more adequately challenged. Physical Strength, Fullness, and Stamina are the stats players will need to watch out for since the lattermost two are reduced when any action is taken. Thankfully, Stamina is recovered automatically, though Fullness restoration requires food. Tool durability and weight are additional facets to keep in mind during exploration.
The town of Orth is the game’s primary base, boasting the following features:
- Guild HQ – This is the headquarters of the organization that provides work to Cave Raiders. Various quests can be accepted.
- Supply Shop – A store that sells cave raiding essentials. Besides pickaxes, clothes and consumables are sold here.
- Relic Appraisal – A store that appraises and buys relics brought back from The Abyss. Obtain money and experience here.
- Laffi’s Store – A spice store run by Hablog’s wife Laffi. Purchase food and spices here.
Unfortunately, even as significant progress is made when descending the Abyss, stress can manifest itself in various ways, such as induced vomiting and bleeding. Further, altered terrain and monsters may impede players’ routes back home, requiring one to be on their toes when retreating.
Lastly, several new screenshots were shared, viewable via our gallery below:
Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is releasing for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on September 2, 2022.
