Publisher NIS America and developer Nihon Falcom announced multiple pre-order options for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 for the PlayStation 4. The game was previously released for the PS4 in Japan in September 2018.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 takes place shortly after the end of the third game. The heroes of Class 7 are fighting against the full force of the Empire. The heroes must stop the Empire’s path of total domination.
In the chaos, the hero of Erebonian Civil War and Class 7’s instructor, Rean Schwarzer, is nowhere to be found. Students from Class 7, which consists of new and previous characters from the series, must work with other heroes on the continent to fight the Empire and find Rean.
Players can either purchase the standard edition or the Digital Deluxe Edition. The upgraded version comes with a costume bundle with outfits from the third game, swimsuit bundle, magical girl bundle, or the standard costume bundle. These costumes can be claimed from the DLC tab on the item page, then equipped from the Camp Menu’s costume page.

The PlayStation version is a single-player game that can be played offline. It uses the vibration function of the Dualshock 4 controller or using a PS Vita.
In total, the Digital Deluxe Edition comes with the full game and four bundles, which amounts to over 70 pieces of DLC cosmetic content. PlayStation Plus members can purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition at a discounted price.
The store page for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 Digital Deluxe Edition is available now for pre-order or to add the game to wishlists. The title is $79.99 unless using a PS Plus membership, which lowers the price to $59.99, a savings of 25%.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 won’t launch on PC via Steam and the Nintendo Switch until sometime in 2021. The PC version of the game does not have pre-order information available yet, but players can add the game to their wishlists now. It’s unknown if this version will come with the same DLC content.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 Digital Deluxe Edition launches on the PlayStation 4 on October 27.
