Location based, co-operative RPG.

Destiny of Spirits, the free-to-play location based battler has a few fresh screens and some deeper information on how the co-operative aspects will work. PSBlog had the following to say:

Destiny of Spirits is a free-to-play, location-based, social strategy game. Players from around the world work cooperatively in turn-based, RPG-style action to battle fierce Chaos spirits. The goal? Purify and save the world.

In Destiny of Spirits, friends will make your journey easier. Each day, The Destiny Engine — which is based on Western and Eastern astrology — will lead you to other players that the engine selects as compatible, based on a number of factors including birthday, name and location.

You’ll greet each day with new suggestions for allies across the world, and the more friends you have, the more benefits you can gain! The gameplay really opens up once you have friends. And working together with people across the world will affect how you strategically interact with Destiny of Spirits.

Trading Spirits
Spirits are unique to certain geographical locations around the globe. However, you can trade spirits with friends to grow and diversify your spirit collection, so the more friends you have increases the potential to gain more spirits — even those spirits you can’t obtain in your region. The distance between you and your friend on the map determines how long it will take to complete the trade.

Renting Spirits
By renting spirits, you can borrow a friend’s spirit to join you in battle. Borrow the right spirit and gain from its unique “supporter skills,” which include important buffs like damage modifiers. Renting spirits costs Destiny Points, but it can be the difference between victory and defeat!

Destiny Strike
During battle, a friend can trigger a “Destiny Strike,” a support attack for when you need it most. As you can see in the image below, a red dot will appear during battle to signal the Destiny Strike, which may be the final attack you need to take down a formidable opponent. The more friends you have, the better chance of it triggering.

Sounds interesting doesn’t it? Are you excited about this style of free-to-play title? We will give you updates as and when we get them. While no release date has been set I’m fairly sure we can be expecting Destiny of Spirits to launch before the end of the year.

I'm 27 years old, and have been playing games for 20 years now, ever since Sonic and Alex Kidd on the master system. I love most types of games but I have a particular passion for music games and racing games, though Final Fantasy VII is and probably always will by my all time favourite as it's the only computer game to ever make me cry!

    I was kind of hoping you wouldn’t give this title oxygen in the form of coverage.

    It’s a damning indictment of the modern game industry that developers as talented as Studio Japan can be stuck working on free2pay rubbish.

      Thanks, there’s still a few things to do (like fix the quote scheme) but it’s coming along nicely I think. =D

    When I first saw screenshots of this game, I was so ready to dismiss it. Now the more I read about it, the more I become intrigued.

    Seems like a pretty interesting concept if you ask me.
