DirectX9 version out of beta!

The DirectX9 version is now considered officially out of beta!

Note to existing players: You may need to open the DX9 configuration before running the game if you don't go back to DX8 mode!

I'm officially ending the DirectX9 beta as I feel that there are few enough bugs left to make it the default version of the game. With this change, you'll find that the game now launches as DirectX9 normally, but the DirectX8 version and its Configuration Tool still remain as an accessible option from the Steam Library.

Turbo Mode is also considered much less buggy than it was at release and you should no longer be able to break the universe using it. Sorry, universe-breaking fans!

What's more, all of these changes are now available on GOG Galaxy as well, and the version of the game available on both services is identical, even able to unlock GOG and Steam achievements at the same time if you own the game on both services and have them both open.

These patches will be coming to GOG for non-Galaxy users and to our DRM-free players very soon, too!

Thanks for your patience, guys!

About This Game

Modern society owes much to a mystical technology known as “orbal energy.” Fifty years ago, during what’s come to be known as the “Orbal Revolution,” the invention of this technology and the “orbments” developed from it led to a period of rapid human advancement, birthing innovations of all shapes and sizes -- not the least of which was the airliner, or “orbalship” industry. Although the positive impact of this revolution is obvious, every coin has a flipside; for every beneficial device developed with these new materials, so too were advanced weapons and other implements of war. Thus, the land became mired with turmoil, and remains in such a state even now.

Enter, the bracers: an organization established to serve as police and intermediaries alike, holding above all else the peace and safety of the lands under their jurisdiction. Whenever a citizen is in need of assistance, he or she may place a request at the local Bracer Guild -- and be it monster extermination, crime prevention or even peace talks among warring nations, the bracers will do whatever they can to resolve the matter cleanly and efficiently.

Some matters require a gentler touch than others, however. When an orbalship transporting a legendary "S-rank" bracer named Cassius Bright suddenly goes missing, said bracer's daughter, Estelle, and adoptive son, Joshua, must join forces in search of him across the entire Kingdom of Liberl.

And what they find along the way could change both of their lives forever...

Hailed as one of the largest, longest and most meticulously detailed turn-based JRPG series of all time, this first chapter in the ongoing Trails saga sets the stage for what's quickly become Ys developer Nihon Falcom's most popular and best-selling franchise in their entire 30+ year history. Introducing people, places, ideas, events and lore that rival in complexity those of even the most highly-regarded fantasy epics in literature, the care and attention given to each and every NPC, location and historical in-game event is what sets The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky apart from its contemporaries.

Come join Estelle, Joshua, Scherazard, Olivier and the rest of the cast as they uncover the secret underbelly of Liberl in their first 50+ hour masterpiece, and see what Japanese gamers have been raving about for over ten years.

Key Features:

  • The original version of the first chapter in this historical series, featuring strategic turn-based combat with unmatched customization.
