  • DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age

DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is the eleventh mainline entry in the popular DRAGON QUEST franchise, but it is a standalone experience with a brand new character, meaning that anyone can play the game without having any knowledge of the previous titles and enjoy it.

DRAGON QUEST XI features a captivating world, intense and complex turn-based combat, and a gripping story that will appeal to both longtime fans of the franchise and players that are new to it. This time we follow a young man that is about to participate in a coming of age ceremony that is traditional in his village. While traveling to a Sacred Stone with his childhood friend, a lot of unexpected events occur, and our young hero learns the truth about himself. He is a reincarnation of a mighty hero from a long forgotten age, and so he sets off on a journey to discover what his past is. Instead of receiving help from the King when telling him his true identity, he instead gets called “The Darkspawn” and gets hunted down by a merciless army. You will gather a party of brave adventurers, and together with them, you will go on a quest that will take you face to face with something ominous that threatens the entire world.

KEY FEATURES

  • Unravel an Epic Mystery in a Riveting Tale – DRAGON QUEST XI tells the tale of a hunted hero: denigrated as a demon and pursued by a malicious monarch, you must embark on a quest to unravel the mystery of your fate and save a doomed world. At the heart of the game is an immersive story with twists and turns that pull you in and keep you craving more – from the opening cutscene to the final credits!
  • Assemble a Colorful Cast of Loyal Companions – Accompanying the hero on his quest is an endearing band of adventurers with their own rich backstories and personalities as diverse as their designs. Once again, famed manga artist Akira Toriyama brings the characters of DRAGON QUEST to life with his delightful, one-of-a-kind style.
  • Explore a Beautiful, Living World – DRAGON QUEST XI brings a massive, gorgeous world to life in a style that blends stylistic cel-shading with photorealistic detail. Excitement lurks around every corner as players explore populous cities, quaint villages, magnificent castles, and dark dungeons. NPC’s attend to their daily schedules, monsters change behaviors to fit their environments, and players can access new areas with the use of monstrous vehicles.
  • Engage in Classic Battles with a Modern Twist – DRAGON QUEST XI’s turn-based battle system eases players into combat with an accessible experience that features mechanics simple enough for the novice but with enough depth to satisfy hardcore fans.
  • Have Some Fun & Save the World – In addition to its captivating narrative, DRAGON QUEST XI features tons of side-quests and addicting mini-games that provide enough content to keep you playing for well over 100 hours. You will face insurmountable odds and an evil force of unimaginable power… but while the stakes are high, there are many fun distractions to find if you know where to look.
