With a standalone story that also delves into the expansive lore that has become synonymous with the series, players can enjoy school life and bond with fellow students to earn new abilities in battle, take advantage of speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed "ARCUS" system, and uncover dramatic events that stand to change everything these two opposing social classes stand for.
Chosen as founding members of the esteemed Thors Military Academy's experimental Class VII, Ream Schwarzer and his classmates are tasked with rooting out the myriad political troubles that fester just beneath the surface of the Erebonian Empire.
As their studies lead them deeper into the nation's woes, they'll face opposition from nobles, armies, insurgents, and even their own families. Because at Thors, it takes more than straight A's to make the grade.
This time, it might take saving the country from ruin! Control the fate of an empire!
