Game Overview

The DioField Chronicle - Game Overview Banner

The DioField Chronicle (ディオフィールド クロニクル), is a single-player, real-time tactics role-playing game developed by Square Enix and Lancarse. The game is published by Square Enix for the Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, and Steam. It is a new JRPG property featuring real-time tactics gameplay with cutting-edge graphics.

The DioField Chronicle - Game Overview

The game was announced last March 2022. The development was composed of staff members from Square Enix and Lancarse led by Hirata Shigeyuki (Square Enix), Kumagai Takahiro (Square Enix), and Fukui Hirofumi (Lancarse).

The DioField Chronicle - Battle System

The DioField Chronicle aims to birth a new simulation RPG with beautiful graphics for both its story and its gameplay experience. The game’s battle system is similar to strategic, real-time battle games like Total War, XCOM, and Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. While its base camp and army development systems are reminiscent of the Fire Emblem titles, including Three Houses, Triangle Strategy, and Valkyria Chronicles.


The DioField Chronicle - Story Overview

The DioField Chronicle is set in a fictional war-torn continent, where the Kingdom of Alletain sits in between the conflict of the Trovelt-Schoevian Empire and the Rowetale Alliance. After the Alliance is defeated by the Empire, the latter now sets its sights to conquer the Kingdom.

The DioField Chronicle - Blue Foxes Characters

The game centers on the playable characters of the Blue Foxes, a mercenary group composed of Andrias Rhondarson, Fredret Lester, Izelair Wigan, Iscarion Colchester, and Waltaquin Redditch. The mercenary group will grow over time and new recruit will join.


The DioField Chronicle shares elements from other turn-based and real-time tactics RPGs while having its own new and unique gameplay systems as well. Here is a quick summary of The DioField Chronicle’s unique gameplay:

Real-Time Tactical Battles

The DioField Chronicle - Real-Time Tactical Battles

The game features battles that play out in real time. Unlike turn-based tactical battles, you issue orders to your units simultaneously and change decisions in split seconds in order to adapt and secure a victory. There is no grid-based movement but units move through a waypoint within the map.

You command four active units during a battle and assign the remaining ones as adjutants. The adjutants can carry over their active skills to the active unit they are partnered with.

The DioField Chronicle - Magilumic Orb Goldhorne Summon

In addition, you can use summons like Bahamut and Goldhorne to assist you in clearing your mission. These summon are obtained through Magilumic Orbs and their assistance can be in the form of damage or healing.

A battle can be in the form of defeating enemies, defending a stronghold, escorting an ally, or capturing strategic points on a map.
