This Official Let’s Play video introduces you to the beginning of the world and the game’s mechanics, straight from the developers themselves as they play through the game!
Here’s the introduction to basic gameplay and the game world itself.
The series of seven in-depth gameplay videos that will be released over the coming weeks will give you a detailed look at the vast worlds of Bionis and Mechonis, the scene of a war that knows no end between the Mechon (a race of machines) and the Homs (humans).
The first video in the series takes you through the basic gameplay elements as you guide Shulk into the battle for Bionis, to repel the invasion of a terrifying mechanical army and uncover the secrets of a mystical sword called the Monado.
Get an early and unique view on the many features that form the game, learn how to fulfil quests, obtain armour and collect new items and weapons. The first exclusive video shows you the best way to launch attacks with your initial party members, Reyn and Fiora, which is one of the most effective ways to defeat the large monsters you will encounter along your journey.
You will also experience the Mechon onslaught, the turning point in the Xenoblade Chronicles story. Uncover the art of inflicting ‘break’ and causing ‘topple’ so you and your party can start to inflict real damage to the Mechon, as well as mastering the use of the Monado – the only blade that can defeat the Mechon.
Familiarise yourself with the visions Shulk experiences, where he can see glimpses into catastrophic future events which you must try to prevent from happening, as well as learning the affinity system, in which the player can improve his relationship with his party and many non-player characters through interacting with them. The affinity system also incorporates side quests and completing them can affect how townsfolk will treat you, opening up new story sequences for you to explore.
The first in this run of seven insights into the many elements of Xenoblade Chronicles will bring the game to life, using real gameplay examples and situations you will encounter as you battle to defend your hometown, Colony 9.
