Today, during a livestream from Sega’s headquarters in Tokyo, the publisher showcased a new trailer of Senjou no Valkyria 4: Eastern Front, which will be released in the west with the more familiar title Valkyria Chronicles 4.
In the trailer, we see the various game mechanics of the game, including the familiar use of command points and action points, the new grenadier class, what happens when a unit falls in battle, unit progreession, the first look at the Cruiser that we’ll be able to use during the game (including dedicated ship orders), and much more.
Interestingly, we see new features of the map including elements like Ragnite boxes, fire, and avalanches. A look at classes reveals that engineers can repair stairs to reach inaccessible areas of a level. One of the most intriguing elements we hear is that all squad members will have their own side mission.
As usual, our tank can be heavily customized, including stickers (of which we see one featuring Squad E’e mascot medical dog Ragnarok).
The cruiser is named “Snow Cruiser Centurion,” and can be customized as well, it can provide radar sweeps to reveal enemies and fire support on the battlefield.
