Square Enix has released the first information and screenshots surrounding its newly announced Final Fantasy Explorers-Force, which is due out as a free-to-play title with in-app purchases for iOS and Android devices in Japan in 2017.

Get the details below.

■ Prologue

Final Fantasy Explorers-Force

There exists a group of people called Soldiers.

These warriors, who are part of the “International Peace Alliance,” which is known by the nickname FORCE, fight with trained bodies and sharpened minds as exploration specialists.

Many of them were once called Explorers, who devoted themselves to adventuring the world.

Then the world was thrown into a great war. In the battle lasting several decades, the earth and its atmosphere were ruined. To the foolish actions of humanity, calamity was the response. Summons beasts appeared all throughout the world.

In order to stand against this overwhelming threat, humanity established a temporary truce. An organization to oppose the summons beasts is formed, which after its destruction is the predecessor of the organization known as the “International Peace Alliance.”

50 years have passed since the calamity. A young man living in the frontier sets off to become a Soldier of the International Peace Alliance. But the young man has yet to understand that he will soon be caught up in a major event on which the fate of the world hinges.
