Tales of Arise officially arrives in less than a month, but if you can’t wait that long (or if you’re on the fence), you can now download and play the official Tales of Arise demo. The demo offers a curated mini-experience set inside Tales of Arise, letting players get a taste of what the game offers without giving away too much. There’s also a new trailer to check out.
After you play the Tales of Arise demo, the full game is currently available for preorder, with three editions from which to choose. Tales of Arise officially releases on Sept. 10, 2021 for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5, and PS4.
Tales of Arise follows the stories of two unlikely heroes, Alpen and Shionne, as they work to decide the fate of maligned and exploited nation of Dahna. An open-world JRPG, Tales of Arise features slick visuals and even slicker combat, where each character traveling with you plays a key role in battles. Those who love the JRPG genre absolutely need to keep an eye on Tales of Arise, but what we’ve seen of the game shows it might even have what it takes to join our list of best Xbox games.
