Hong Kong – July 20th, 2022 – Independent developer and publisher Eastasiasoft Limited today released a new trailer for the Chinese mythology-based action RPG Sword and Fairy: Together Forever, a brand new standalone entry in the storied franchise. The Heroes & Villains feature showcases the cast of characters who will accompany you on your journey, as well as the ones who will try to foil your plans. Sword and Fairy: Together Forever will release on PS5™ and PS4™ in North America, Europe and Australia on August 4th.



Sword and Fairy: Together Forever weaves a tale with memorable characters who have their own unique motivations and personalities. Between the clans of humans, deities and demons on the brink of war, heroism and villainy are often a matter of perspective rather than black-and-white morality. Not every hero is selfless, and not every villain is purely evil. It’s up to young deity Xiu Wu, human swordswoman Yue Qingshu and their newfound allies to fight for what they believe and find a way to prevent open war between the realms, to protect peace and shape the world’s future for the greater good despite their differences.

 
With its beginnings in 1995, the Sword and Fairy RPG series has captured the hearts and imagination of Chinese-speaking players for decades. Now, in 2022, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever advances mechanics and graphics presentation into the next generation. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever features intense real-time combat and vast detailed environments to explore, complemented by depth and engaging storytelling that have defined the franchise since its inception. This is a standalone RPG epic that can be enjoyed equally by long-time fans or newcomers without prior knowledge of the series, one that Eastasiasoft Limited is exceptionally proud to bring to new audiences worldwide.


Sword and Fairy: Together Forever was originally developed by Softstar Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. Eastasiasoft Limited will publish digitally in the west. This new console version of the game will feature four exclusive outfits and a weapon appearance not available in the original PC release. US & EU physical editions for PS5™ and PS4™ are also in the works with more details to be announced soon.
