Have you been itching for a new free-to-play RPG? If so, you might be getting just what you want on the Vita.
Sony announced today that Destiny of Spirits, a free-to-play location-based RPG, will be out today on the PlayStation Vita. The game has players summoning spirits to do battle with and against players from all over the world. Players will also be able to rent and trade spirits with other players.
Here's how the game works:
In Destiny of Spirits, the world contains three types of magical substances: Spirit Points, Summoning Stones and Destiny Orbs. Spirit Points are earned after battles and can be used to rent other player’s Spirits, merge Spirits to level up, and trade Spirits with other players. Summoning Stones are also earned through battles and you can use these to summon Spirits. Destiny Orbs are available for purchase on PlayStation Store. Some features require Destiny Orbs like Advanced Summon, Rare Summon, restoring a Spirit’s health, and other features at the Shop.
As you can see, free-to-play game design is strong with Destiny of Spirits. While it's technically possible to enjoy most of what the game has to offer for free, you're going to have to spend money to get the most out of it.
Speaking of spending money, you'll have to spend some cash to unlock the first rare summon - Knack. Sony says Knack is just the first of many PlayStation characters being added to the game as rare summons. If you want to see more, you'll just have to keep playing.
Destiny of Spirits will be available once the PlayStation Store updates today.
