players fight each other using swords, guns, and magic. Players get to form "unions" with other players, as well as play around with class types like the striker (sword wielder), the caster (magic user), and the blaster (heavy firearms user). Capcom also states that the game will include giant monsters together with the aforementioned team-based combat. Details beyond that are currently scarce at this point in time.The game's alpha testing will kick off next month, specifically on July 28 in Japan and will be open to 5,000 players. An alpha testing session in the US or any other country outside of Japan has yet to be confirmed. Ixion Saga will be out in the summer of next year.
