Star Ocean 5 screenshots introduce party skills and world structure

Square Enix has posted new screenshots for Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, detailing the various kingdoms found in the game as well as party skills.

The three main kingdoms of Feikreed: Trei’kur, Resulia, and Langdauq

Fidel, Miki, and Victor are from the middle kingdom of Resulia, while Fiore is from the allied kingdom of Langdaug. To the West is Trei’kur – a desert kingdom low on resources and fertile land. Its relationship with Resulia is often at odds, leading to conflict and war. Many military encampments can be found along the Resulia-Trei’kur border.

Gathering Skills: Loot gathering points appear on the mini map and item acquisition increases
