The journey will begin in Gryja, the first of four planets in Batora: Lost Haven. Gryja is a desert planet that experiences reoccurring earthquakes, also known as Gryjaquakes. The planet consists of rocky grounds and despite Gryja’s settings being dry and desertic, its predominant colours are acidic! Which is why the glowing planet is filled with colourful fauna and crystals.
Life on Gryja follows a continuous life cycle, similar to reincarnation. Everly life form on the planet is destined to return to the planet’s core in which it will soon after form into a physical being again until it has been destroyed which then it will repeat the cycle.
The combat system in Batora: Lost Haven heavily focuses on the balance of duality. You’ll be playing with two abilities; Physical and Mental, this is called the Nature Switch. Each ability has its own mechanics and skills, this is reflected in their different play styles: Hack and Slash for the Physical ability and Twin Stick Shooter for the Mental ability.
Nature Switch, however, is not limited to combat, it can also be used when interacting with various environmental elements, to solve puzzles and to help uncover hidden secrets.
In Batora: Lost Haven you will have to make decisions that will decide Avril’s fate and how the game will end. This is called the Karma System.
Each planet will have many opportunities where you will have to make choices based on your own morals. Larger events and choices will affect the story and gameplay while others will change the behaviour of other minor characters that you will encounter.
