The long-awaited turn-based fantasy ARPG Valiant Force 2 has been released in the SEA region. It succeeds the super-successful ARPG phenomenon Valiant Force by XII Braves PTE LTD. With this story, we aim to inform you about the latest developments in the game’s storyline, original story background, new features, and availability.
Original Valiant Force Story
Extremely talented twins Emma and Ethan Godric turned to blood magic ten years ago in a last-ditch effort to exact revenge for the murders of their family. Their mental stability was destroyed by the magic, which needed the sacrifice of souls until Emma’s newly discovered abilities drove her insane.
Believing that death was the only way for humanity to be purified of its sins; Emma tried to cast a spell that would wipe out the entire human race. In the nick of time, Ethan, who had changed his mind, pierced her heart with his sword.
Before passing away, Emma made a final vow to return and complete her unfinished business with humanity. Ethan too grabbed his weapon and disappeared from the pages of history. Omens predicted that this dormant evil will reawaken and envelop Arathos in darkness more than ten years later. To put up the finest squad the world has ever known to take on this invading evil, our heroic heroes Leon and Theia race against time to enlist the help of the Valiants, the best heroes in the land, and a group of reliable allies.
New Valiant Force 2 Storyline
You will return to the kingdom of Arathos as it will be pushed towards demolition and chaos in this follow-up story. It is set ten years after the dreadful events of Valiant Force, and the land is now vulnerable to threats from beyond its borders as a result of the missing Crystal of Arathos and its sworn guardian, Leon Daracan. There is a sense of animosity crippling the citizens of the kingdom; although some continue to believe in the Hero of Arathos, others denounce him for what they perceive to be a betrayal of their ideals.
Here, Elise Arkwright comes into the picture, a passionately idealistic knight; who is ready for the ultimate war. Elise will face every danger with the unwavering support of her allies Felix Vulcan and Maeve Astraea to restore harmony and stability to the realm.
