With its inspired W.W.2 fantasy setting, frenetic combat system and memorable characters, Valkyria Chronicles was arguably the best SRPG of the PS3 era. (Those unfamiliar with the game can read our own love letter explaining its virtues.) You can now get the game on Steam including all previously released DLC for just $19.99. Hurrah!
If you’ve never played a tactical role-playing game before, Valkyria Chronicles is a pretty decent place to start. Unlike many games in the genre, it dispenses with grid-based movement and allows player to get into the thick of the action via third-person action sequences. Despite this, it remains deeply rooted in strategy thanks to its turn-based BLiTZ battle system.
The game is available now and will unlock in approximately two days’ time. Pre-Purchasing will also knock 10 per cent off, bringing the total to $17.99. This works out to around 30 cents per hour of gameplay — and that’s if you discount the high replayability value.
