The Sword and Fairy franchise may not be that well-known internationally, but it’s regarded in China as one of the most iconic RPG series ever made. Since its launch in 1995, Sword and Fairy has grown to include seven official sequels, more than 10 spin-off titles, and two live-action TV shows.
Today, we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that the latest game in this series, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever, will arrive with Xbox Game Pass on July 6, 2023, and will support Xbox Play Anywhere, allowing you to bring all your saves and achievements with you across Xbox and Windows PC.
For those new to the series, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever is a standalone story so there’s no need to catch up with all the older games (although if you’ve played them, you’ll definitely see how far the series has come). From a graphics perspective, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever is a huge step up from its previous games. Running on Unreal Engine 4, it’s filled to the brim with stunning character models, creatures, environments, and architecture.
At its core, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever is about the relationships between humans, deities, and demons. Our story revolves around a young woman name Yue Qingshu, one of the last remaining members of the elusive Mingshu Sect; and Xiu Wu, a deity who has lost a divine sword and must remain in the human world. The two young warriors form a symbiotic bond and must stick together throughout their adventure as they discover new allies and mortal enemies.
Gameplay combat is simplified and fast-faced, especially compared to the last games’ turn-based system. Now in real-time, fighting is smooth and straightforward. You’ll also get to switch between party characters and assign elements to customize and balance the team as you progress.
Sword and Fairy: Together Forever is a refreshingly stunning Asian title featuring jaw dropping environments and impressive character models. In this beautiful world, you can explore mountains and fields, while fighting epic characters. To top it off, the official soundtrack is just stellar- you might just add it to chill/study playlist!
We look forward to seeing Xbox Game Pass members dive in and experience this epic franchise with Sword and Fairy: Together Forever on July 6, 2023.
