Lost Eidolons: Fire Emblem-style turn-based strategic RPG announced at ID @ Xbox

Lost Eidolons

Lost Eidolons is among the absolute novelties shown during the ID @ Xbox event and it is an interesting turn-based strategic RPG in a medieval setting, which for structure is somewhat reminiscent of Fire Emblem even if it has a decidedly different setting and style from the title Nintendo.

Developed by Ocean Drive Studio, Lost Eidolons is a single player RPG that stages strategic turn-based combat with an overhead view, interspersed with narrative moments and third-person exploration, at least as far as we can see in the presentation trailer.

The game will be launched in early access on PC in the course of 2021 and will also arrive on Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One, with probable release on other consoles later, even if there is no there is still specific information about it.

Set in the fantasy world of Artemesia, the game features a rather realistic medieval fantasy setting: the protagonist of the story is Eden, a mercenary originally from the city of Lonetta, who finds himself in disgrace due to a conspiracy perpetrated by a group of aristocrats against him.

At this point, he begins his voyage of revenge for redemption, which will however see him drawn into various machinations and a complex plot made up of subterfuges, betrayals and battles full of choices with moral implications to undertake, which will lead to discover the true identity of Eden and the clash with the emperor Ludivictus.

Lost Eidolons is characterized by a deep characterization of the characters, by a careful preparation phase of the troops to be deployed in battle and by the actual fights, which take place in a strategic turn-based manner on a checkerboard map. For the other games announced yesterday, we refer you to the summary with all the games, videos and announcements of the ID @ Xbox event.

Lost Eidolons presents a world of fantasy but the medieval setting is quite relevant to reality
