Ubisoft has announced that it will publish Star Ocean: Till the End of Time in Europe later this fall. In the sci-fi role-playing game, players assume the role of a genetics student and member of the Galaxy Federation named Fate Linegod. The start of the game sees Fate taking a vacation on a resort planet with his family and a fellow student, but the holiday is rudely interrupted when the planet is attacked by an alien force and Fate finds himself all alone.
"We are very proud that Square Enix, one of the best RPG creators in the world, chose Ubisoft as a publishing partner for the new opus of their mythic franchise Star Ocean," said Alain Corre, Ubisoft's managing director for Europe. "It is the very first time in this current generation of machines that this mythic brand will be introduced to European gamers, and there's no doubt they'll praise it as the PlayStation 2 RPG game of the year."
"We are very excited at the prospect of bringing such a strong title as Star Ocean: Till the End of Time to the European public," added John Yamamoto, president of Square Enix Europe. "This demonstrates our commitment to bringing an ever-greater range of quality titles to the PAL market."
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time is currently scheduled for release in North America in August. We'll bring you more information on the game as soon as it becomes available.
