PC owners picking up Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition for Steam this week will be pleased to know that tri-Ace will be giving out the high-res textures as free DLC.
According to tri-Ace, since the PC version originally required about 83 gigabytes o space, releasing the high-resolution texture separately allowed them to reduce the space required to play to only 16GB. For gamers who have a meaty PC and want to really play the game on 4K resolution, definitely consider downloading the high-resolution textures for the best performance possible.
New to the game? Here’s an overview via the official website:
The Earth in a far distant future.
Although the reasons are unclear, multitudes of negative elements saturate the world, leaving the earth on the brink of ruin.
The poisons from the atmosphere swirl along the ground, and the biosphere has become so warped that even the concept of time has been broken. The human race faces extinction from being unable to cope with the bizarrely evolving ecosystem.
The remnants of humanity band together to build and place ‘Basel’, a huge machine that normalizes the environment. Basel functionality to normalize things also included controlling living things. That also included controlling the life cycles of people, reducing and exhausting humans as mere seeds.
The remaining humans gathered around Basel and continued their existence. In time, the humans gained entrance into the machine and created living spaces and even a town. Though these actions had consequences, causing the gradual erosion of Basel’s functionality.
The descendants of the original builders huddled in their self-contained worlds, repeating the mistakes of their ancestors.
