Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:
Atlatan, a continent where Chaos dominates everything. Frightened by the disasters caused by the Chaos, the people live under the protection of “Lords” who possess “Crests,” the power to suppress those calamities.
However, the Lords eventually abandon the idea of “protection of the people,” and break into a war to fight for each other’s Crests and territory—. During that, a solitary mage named Siluca, who despises Lords without ideals, meets Theo, a wandering knight on a training journey in order to free his hometown from tyrannical rule.
Through the high-handed tactics of Siluca, who is touched by Theo’s ideals, they sign a master and servant contract and aim to bring change to a continent thrown into war.

Command Units in Real-Time and Cut Through the Battlefield With Your Own Hands with “RTS Action”
The state of war on the battlefield changes in real-time, and your decisions will have a major influence on the outcome of the battle. Command each unit and adapt to various situations, such as sieges by the enemy army and breaking through the enemy’s defenses. You can also control each character and run through the battlefield using your own actions. And it is not only a large-scale war led by military forces—battles against brutal monsters also await…
The theme song, “Takaga 100-Nen no” will be performed by Japanese pop rock / alternative rock band Aqua Timez.
