 Fate's Edge is an action/adventure game released for PC, Xbox 360 and One and Playstation 3 and 4. It is set on a planet named Amaeril in the 2100s.

Gameplay

The gameplay is similar to most third-person action-adventures and most predominantly: Kingdom Hearts. It is a very fast game incorporating lots of hack n slash, combos and special attacks, not unlike the Batman: Arkham series.

Plot

Prologue

The game revolves around a 17 year old boy named Scope. At the start of the game his father goes missing, so he decides to try to find him. Unfortunately, Scope digs too deep into his father's past and learns of an ancient group of demon hunters called Guardians. He tries to find out more about this mysterious group and eventually tracks down a woman named Kayla who is in contact with them. She leads him to them where he asks about his father. They tell him if they are to tell him any information he must become a Guardian. Scope reluctantly agrees and they tell him his father has been killed by an ancient force awakening and he must find out what it was that awoke.

Act I

Scope goes on a mission to an untouched part of the Lowlands to gather information about the ancient demon. He meets a man named Braid whose son joined the ranks of the demons and he hadnt seen him since. He told Scope that he and his father were very close. He knew Scope's father was having trouble with the demonsand narrowed the force down to one of three things. 1- An ancient demon lord has been awakened from the dead. 2- The demons consumed Scope's father and turned him into a demon lord. 3- The apocalypse has begun. The two are then attacked by a horde of demon wolves made of bloodsteel (Extremely strong metal on Amaeril)

Act II

Scope returns to Ion City to inform the Guardians of what he has learnt. Upon returning Scope is approached by a hooded figure who tells him that Lucifer is coming. He tells the guardians both pieces of information and immediately they realise the ancient demon lord Lucifer has awakened. A demon siege is then launched on Ion City and Goldcore Town (Scope's hometown). Scope must choose which town to defend. (This decision reflects some of the events later in the game). If the player takes too long, both locations will be destroyed, leading to a different set of events) After the Sieges, Scope rushes to Grayscar Beach to fight Lucifer but is faced by the hooded man. The hooded man then warns Scope to leave Amaeril, to kill himself, to stop this madness. He tells Scope that Lucifer is only trying to kill Scope and no-one else.

Act III

Scope returns to whichever city didnt get destroyed by the siege (Windkill Shack if both were destroyed) to contemplate what to do. He decides to hunt down Lucifer and find out what he did to his father. After 3 missions of searching, the final mission of the game results in Scope heading towards The Volcanic Altar. When there he is confronted by the hooded figure one last time who warns him not to go any further, because if Lucifer succeeds in killing Scope, Amaeril itself may end. Scope ignores this warning which forces the hooded figure to unleash a giant demon clone of Scope against Scope so that Lucifer doesnt kill him. After killing the Demon, Scope proceeds to the Altar, where he sees his father's body left as a sacrifice. Shouting out in sheer anger, he summons Lucifer so that he can avenge his father. After the boss fight, Scope returns to the city not destroyed (or Windkill Shack) and drinks a cold beer. The game goes to the credits after Scope shoots a demon cat in the face.
