General Producer Yusuke Tomizawa provided more details. Players will meet a new character named Nazamil, a girl of both Dahnan and Renan blood. She is the daughter of a Lord who was in the base game, which is currently kept secret. The story will be over 20 hours, and “the quality of the cutscenes has further improved.”
Further, there will be new dungeons, quests, and costumes. And while this takes place after the main game, “a certain level of skills and other statuses are provided at the start” for all players to be at the “appropriate level of design.”
“…we did not adopt a simple transfer of levels and statuses from the main game. Instead, we have prepared bonuses such as money and skill points based on the clear data of the main game.”
Bandai Namco has listed the Beyond the Dawn expansion contents below:
- Beyond the Dawn Storyline: A brand-new storyline with new dungeons and subquests depicting the new adventures of the party members.
- Special Data: Additional costumes for each of the characters!
- New Departure Support Pack: Contains 50,000 Gald, Level Up +5, CP +100, and a complete fishing gear set.
- Silver Weapon Collection: A set containing a weapon of each character in a shiny silvery color.

Tales of Arise advances the graphics with the new “Atmospheric Shader,” which presents the world as if it were a hand-drawn painting. Further, the combat has evolved, allowing for a better sense of spectacle and direct player feedback based upon their actions. Finally, the graphics, combat system, characters, and story combine to present a vivid and realized world that the developer hopes will immerse players.
