It tells an epic and sweeping tale of war and honor

If you like games with fast and punchy stories, you’ll love it The DioField Chronicle. The game takes place in a unique world that fuses fantasy, medieval and modern influences. This land is not peaceful – the entire continent has been ravaged by a devastating war between the Empire and the Alliance. Despite this turmoil, one nation remained unaffected – the kingdom of Alletain on the island of DioField.

Alletain is rich in Jade – a precious material prized for its use as a basic ingredient in witchcraft. Something so valuable will inevitably attract attention, and as the conflict between the Empire and the Alliance escalates, the two turn their gaze to the island. War comes to DioField… with the kingdom of Alletain caught in the middle.

Amid the flames and chaos, an elite group of mercenaries emerge and call themselves Blue Fox. This small band of warriors will come to shape the destiny of DioField… and the world itself. It’s an expansive tale full of drama and epic moments…but it’s also a reminder that it’s the characters that really matter. Speaking of what…

It’s full of memorable characters

You take control of the Blue Fox mercenaries and follow these fascinating and flawed heroes through their many battles. Allow us to introduce you to the four team leaders:

Andrias Rhondarson

Andrias is calm, cool and a very resourceful leader. He studied strategy and tactics, and is well versed in the ancient sorcery that has been passed down on DioField through the generations.

When he was young, he caught the eye of a nobleman who recognized something special in him. He trained as a soldier, eventually becoming Prince Levantia Shaytham’s chamberlain and bodyguard.

But when disaster strikes and Levantia is attacked by assassins, Andrias’ life is turned upside down and a new path presents itself.

Fredret is so tall, buff and burly that one would assume he would serve as an infantryman. Instead, however, he chooses to take advantage of his superb riding skills and gallops freely across the battlefield on horseback.

He has known Andrias since childhood, and the two have been through many life-threatening situations together. As a result, they share an almost unbreakable bond of brotherhood.

Fredret is generous, honest and straightforward – which is what people admire him for. However, he is also somewhat naive, possibly due to his rural upbringing. He also tends to become obsessed with the things he is passionate about.

Iscarion Colchester Picture

Iscarion Colchester is a prodigiously skilled archer – something that serves him well as a mercenary.

Of course, he wasn’t always a blue fox. The son of a minor nobleman, Iscarion followed Colchester tradition by joining the local order of knights. However, due to personal tragedy, he left and became a knight-errant, traveling the kingdom alone.

He may seem distant, but he will never ignore those in need. For this reason, he is highly respected by those he commands.

Waltaquin Redditch

Waltaquin became interested in magic from an early age and immersed herself in the in-depth study of ancient sorcery. Now she is an incomparable magician.

As the daughter of one of Suffield’s most prominent nobles, she has been spoiled all her life and has the attitude to match. She can be selfish and arrogant, but her grace and intelligence are undeniable.

You’ll get to know all of these characters – and more – intimately during this epic story. Their struggles become your struggles and in the end they will feel like family.

It features the thrilling real-time tactical combat system

But enough about the story – how does the game actually play out? The DioField Chronicle introduces a dynamic combat system that merges command-based tactics with real-time tactics. It’s called the Real-Time Tactical Battle System and it allows for fast-paced, strategy-rich battles that require you to be attentive and adaptable to prevail.

Although you can pause the game to give orders and think about your strategy, everything happens in real time. Unlike many other strategy RPGs, enemies won’t sit around twiddling their thumbs while your troops carry out your commands – they’ll move just as you do.

The battlefield is also full of “stuff” – from turrets to barricades to explosive barrels, which both you and the enemy can take advantage of. All of this makes combat extremely unpredictable, where the flow of the battle is constantly changing.

Like all good tactical games, good planning and smart strategy are key to success, but you also need to be adaptable. A plan that worked at the start of a fight can lose its effectiveness if enemies leave their position, for example, so you have to be ready with a new approach.

It’s an audiovisual treat

All the action takes place in richly detailed environments that are depicted with engaging diorama-style visuals. Not only is it stunning to look at – especially in 4K on Xbox Series X|S – but it gives the game a unique look all its own!
