The DioField Chronicle Introduces Primary Setting, Jade Mineral & Ancient Aurgus Beast Race

Square Enix has released a brief new video for their upcoming tactical JRPG, The DioField Chronicle, discussing the title’s setting.

The primary area, DioField Island, is the sixth largest island in the world, also separated from the mainland. Interestingly and disturbingly, an ancient beast race called the Aurgus has its remains scattered throughout this land. Further, the mineral Jade is plentiful here and frequently used to craft magic and sorcery.

The official tweet initially sharing this introductory clip is viewable below:

The DioField Chronicle features a tactical RPG system with a new cast of characters. Further, the developer shared that the soundtrack and story are a significant focus in this new adventure. The gameplay will introduce a new Real-Time Tactical Battle system that players can master. This world blends fantasy, medieval, and modern-day facets with players witnessing the Kingdom of Alletain, led by the Shaytham dynasty on DioField Island, facing conflict for the first time in 200 years.

The reason for this rise in conflict primarily lies in the presence of the mineral Jade, used for magic and sorcery creation, and the island abundantly houses it. The warring Alliance and Empire in the neighboring region are seeking Jade for obvious ends. Players will control Blue Fox, a band of elite mercenaries.

This title is being developed by Lancarse Ltd, a team of veteran strategy developers. Concept art is designed by Isamu Kamikokuryo, who has provided artwork for Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy XIII. Additionally, the composers are Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell, primarily known for their work on Game of Thrones.

The DioField Chronicle is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on September 22, 2022, worldwide. A free demo is also arriving on August 10, 2022.
