Sword And Fairy: Together Forever is a new standalone entry in the storied Chinese mythology-based action RPG franchise.

With its beginnings in 1995, the Sword And Fairy RPG series has captured the hearts and imagination of Chinese-speaking players for decades. Now, in 2022, Sword And Fairy: Together Forever advances mechanics and graphics presentation into the next generation.

Weaving its tale between the three clans of Human, Deity and Demon, Sword And Fairy: Together Forever puts you in command of a memorable party of characters, each with unique personalities, motives, skills, strengths and weaknesses. Only together can they shape the future! Guide them as one in this compelling standalone chapter that serves as a jumping-on point for those new to Sword and Fairy while paying tribute to the series' grand legacy.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Sword And Fairy: Together Forever not only features the most advanced graphics in series history, but it also introduces dynamic real-time combat mechanics with total freedom of movement and fluid, screen-filling skill animations. Switch between playable characters and strategize on the fly! Along the way, you can also meet and care for spirit creatures that will aid in your journey. Discover lush interconnected environments, equip your party with new skills, play mini-games and much more as you explore this beautifully crafted action role-playing epic, including exclusive outfits and weapon skins to further enhance the experience!

“There is nothing more thrilling to our eastasiasoft team than when we get the chance to work on a beloved Asian game that might otherwise never see the light of day in the west,” said Joshua Michael French, Project Lead for Eastasiasoft Limited. “Sword And Fairy: Together Forever exemplifies this in every respect. It’s a beautiful game by any standard, wrought with Chinese tradition and bolstered by decades of passion. It joins our lineup alongside Xuan Yuan Sword 7, Empire of Angels IV and Sword and Fairy 6 to continue our invaluable relationship with SOFTSTAR, one that we hope to grow and nurture with more titles still to come!”

Sword And Fairy: Together Forever has already been well-received in its original PC release, garnering the praise of players and reviewers alike for its graphics, world building, nuanced story and dynamic character writing. Digital Foundry has especially praised its character modeling and visual style:

“Many characters are accentuated with cloth or hair physics to accentuate their movement in ways which make the game a joy to look at - especially in combat where the animations are delightfully over the top,” commented Alex Battaglia, video producer for “I'm really happy to have discovered the Sword And Fairy series - and this seventh series entry really has much to commend it.”

Key Features:

  • Fight in real-time and switch between party characters instantly!
  • Explore diverse landscapes, towns and more across a vivid mythology-based world.
  • Learn and equip new skills as you progress.
  • Experience more than 30 hours of story content and optional side quests!
  • Capture, tame and feed spirit creatures that aid you in different ways.
  • Play card battle mini-games in between intense battles!

This new console version of the game will feature four exclusive outfits and a weapon appearance not available in the original PC release. Physical editions for PS5 and PS4 are also in the works.

Already available on PC (Steam), Sword And Fairy: Together Forever will release on PS5 and PS4 in North America, Europe and Australia this summer targeting a simultaneous global launch.
