What is Ex Astris’ gameplay like?

Ex Astris is a premium turn-based 3D RPG. Its story begins on a tidally locked planet with a rising Xeno civilization. Hailing from Earth, you are assigned to the planet for an investigation, during which you meet a group of traveling friends and embark on an enchanting adventure.

The turn-based combat system occurs in real-time, allowing you to block, parry, and line up combo attacks. You can also employ customized skill combinations to defeat different types of enemies. When it comes to team composition, you have six characters to choose from and can select up to three to form your party.

Through the prototyping phase, Hypergryph has also highlighted its intention to introduce more enemies, explorative and interactive elements, main and side quests, fresh systems like cooking and alchemy, new map expansions, and other forms of non-linear character progression.

Be sure to check back soon, as we’ll be releasing our own Ex Astris review shortly.

Is Ex Astris gacha?

No, Ex Astris isn’t a gacha game. As mentioned previously, it’s actually a premium game that aims to give you a console experience on mobile without the need for microtransactions, premium currencies, a battlepass, or gacha banners. You pay for the game itself, then you can play at your leisure.
