Koei Tecmo has announced that the “Wanderer of the Rift” additional mission for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is now available.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Wanderer of the Rift is the second additional mission of the Season Pass, and it picks up right after the Trials of the Dragon King expansion. There, players can pit Jack and his allies against Gilgames, the fan-favorite Final Fantasy character.
Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect in the expansion:
- New Missions – After clearing the first expansion, Trials of the Dragon King, players can dive into new missions and experience an original story featuring Gilgamesh.
- New Job: Blue Mage – Players can unlock the Blue Mage job by progressing through the Wanderer of the Rift story missions. As a Blue Mage, players can learn enemy abilities and turn them into their own powers, either as instant abilities through Soul Shield or by equipping certain accessories.
- GILGAMESH Difficulty Level – While playing on this new difficulty mode, players can obtain special relic equipment imbued with various special effects. Players can utilize these additional special effects while facing off against more challenging combat with higher level enemies, including “chaotic monsters,” which, when defeated, will grant greater rewards.
- Dimension Bringer – Once this new game mechanic is activated, enemies in the vicinity of the dimension bringer will be slowed down, with the damage the player inflicts increasing each time an action ability is used. When the effect is active, a special attack can be unleashed which rapidly takes down the foe with combos. Monster Bells – Players can receive a Monster Bell to aid them in battle by finding a summonstone and completing a special event with that monster. Players can increase their affinity with their monster through conversations, feeding it and using items.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin “Wanderer of the Rift” is now available on all platforms where the game is released in. Players with the Digital Deluxe Edition can get this as part of their purchase. Though for players without the Season Pass, this can be purchased separately.
Though take note that to play some parts of the additional mission, you’ll need to have completed the main game.
