Fate/Grand Order released in Europe on Android and iOS
After its success in Asia and North America, Europe can finally benefit from the Fate/Grand Order release on Android and iOS. We reveal our first impressions of this game which mixes tactical RPG and visual novel initially released 7 years ago.
Finally the release of Fate/Grand Order in Europe
Available since 2015 in Japan, the release of Fate/Grand Order in Europe will have known how to wait. As a reminder, this game takes up the universe of Fate/stay night from the TYPE-MOON studio. Sent in the past by the Chaldeathe organization of security for the preservation of humanity, your mission is to complete the 7 quests for the Holy Grail, called Grand Orderand thus save humanity from extinction.
Although the release of Fate/Grand Order in Europe arrives 7 years after the initial release of the game, the title displays very decent anime-style graphics, even if the animations seem a bit dated.
In order to improve your team, you must summon hero spirits to help you defeat your enemies. To unlock new characters, the game uses gacha mechanicswith packs of cards to be purchased with in-game currency or real money.
With this Fate/Grand Order release, a lingering doubt about the quality of the gameplay despite its age. Well, we were pleasantly surprised to find that this one has aged very well. F/GO alternates between phases of visual novel storytelling and the phases of turn-based RPG combat.
However, the subtlety of the combat system lies in the fact that you are not free to choose the attacks of your characters. At the start of each round, you must choose three of the five cards offered to you. The goal is to try to create combos using complementary attacks.
For example, green cards increase the chance of critical hits, red cards improve damage, while blue cards help fill the gauge faster to launch a special attack.
So much for our first impressions of the Fate/Grand Order release on Android and iOS. Despite our reluctance to test a game released in 2015, it is clear that this title is still largely up to current productions.
