Update: The live stream is now over, but that doesn’t mean you missed out entirely. You can watch the archived version below.
Square Enix is kicking off a new streaming series focused on the upcoming return of the Star Ocean franchise. Today marks the first episode of Star Log, which appears to be similar to Final Fantasy XV’s occasional and informative Active Time Reports.
In the first episode, we’ll learn about the story, meet some of the characters, and the team will answer some questions about the game. The stream kicks off at 4 p.m. Pacific / 7 p.m. Eastern.
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is due out this year on PlayStation 4.
Square Enix’s approach with Active Time Report and now Star Log is a great model. Players get to hear from developers directly, get an update on the game’s progress, and get answers to some of their questions. I like this trend, especially as it relates to more complex games like RPGs.
