Star Ocean: The Divine Force is an entirely new entry within the Star Ocean series. The title was announced during the October 2021 State of Play broadcast. This included a trailer, which showcased several major characters that will appear in the title. Additionally, it provided a first-hand look at various environments and combat. Few details of the overarching narrative have been revealed, but there are two protagonists, Raymond and Laeticia. Raymond’s spaceship crash-lands on an alien world, and Laeticia decides to help him as the crown princess of the Kingdom of Aucerius.

Beyond Star Ocean: The Divine Force, Square Enix has provided a free PS4-to-PS5 upgrade for other titles in the past. This has included Final Fantasy VII Remake. In December 2021, consumers who obtained the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake through PlayStation Plus became able to upgrade to the PS5 version for free. This was already the case for users who purchased Final Fantasy VII Remake directly.

Star Ocean: The Divine Force will come to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2022. Upgrades from the PS4 version to the PS5 version of Star Ocean: The Divine Force will be entirely free.
