The main focus in developing Star Ocean 5 was complete seamlessness. Battles and event scenarios are going to come through seamlessly. There will be traditional cutscenes, but there will be seamless, dynamic event scenes.
Here’s Square Enix’s official description:
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is an epic adventure that introduces seamless transitions between gameplay and dynamic cut scenes, adding a new layer of depth and immersion to storytelling in the series. The popular real-time action battle system from previous titles has been overhauled with improved game mechanics and action sequences for a truly uninterrupted in-game narrative.
Set between the events of Star Ocean: The Second Story and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness takes place centuries after humans have left Earth for the stars. On a planet in the distant Faykreed star system, the swordsman Fidel Camuze and his childhood friend Miki Sauvester set out to protect their village from being swallowed in the tides of civil unrest.
