Relayer Advanced - Steam GOG PC

■A powered up version of Relayer (released March 2022) with new features comes to Steam and GOG!

Relayer Advanced, which is an evolved version of Relayer which was released on 24 March 2022, is coming to Steam and GOG! Relayer Advanced is a powered up version that adds all sorts of new features. Elements which defined Relayer’s unique tactical battle system such as the aggro system which shows how easy specific units will be targeted by the enemy, special skills for jobs and characters, and the powerful Big Bang moves remain, while also being accompanied with an improved UI, new features, and expanded endgame content. This new content makes it so that players who enjoyed the original release will be able to enjoy Relayer Advanced as well. Relayer Advanced will be released on Steam on 27 October 2022 and on GOG on 10 November 2022, at midnight (JST) on both platforms.

■Relayer Advanced is improved with three new elements!

①  Improved battle UI

The battle UI has been refined: Character and weapon icons have been shrunken down, movement and attack range is now displayed as “luminous lines” instead of a grid which improves visibility and allows for a smoother experience. The player can switch from luminous lines back to the old grid display via the options menu.

Relayer Advanced

The player can choose from the new Advanced UI, or the Classic UI based on the original release from the options menu. The Advanced UI makes it easier to determine attack and movement ranges, improving the player’s experience. The Classic UI uses the same grid display as the original release, allowing players to experience the game as before.

②  Story recollection mode implemented

A Recollections mode has been implemented that lets the player replay story sequences, including the sequences shown when obtaining the DLC NEXT Stella Gears. This allows the player to easily look back at the story, or go back to story sequences they might have accidentally skipped. Additionally, some story sequences in Relayer Advanced have been shortened in order to streamline the experience, but using the recollection mode allows the player to view the full versions of the story sequences.

※The story recollections mode is accessed through the Recollections option in the Space Science Library menu

③  New Endgame Content

A high difficulty mission comprising of 5 stage, “The Trial of the Wormhole,” is added in Relayer Advanced. These new stages are even harder than the previous Asterism Voyage Logs postgame stages, perfect for players who want to be pushed to their limits, but are also balanced to be easily cleared in Easy Mode for players who just want to see the story. A new mysterious enemy, a Phantom, who looks just like Terra appears in the story here.

■Terra(Phantom)

Another Terra who appeared from the wormhole, known as a “Phantom”. She looks just like Terra, but the light in her eyes is lost, showing that she is someone else. She has an aggressive personality, and attacks the Asterism. Phantoms who look like the other Starchildren appear as well. What could they be after?

Relayer Advanced has a pack with the DLC units as well!

Relayer Advanced will also have the NEXT Stella Gears and soundtrack available as DLC. One will also be able to purchased the Relayer Advanced Extra Pack, which bundles the game with 9 DLC units and a season pass that covers DLC to be released later.
