Read our review

Xenoblade Chronicles takes you to the stunning lands of Bionis and Mechonis. The landscapes are vast, offering over 100 hours of immersive gameplay. Whatever you see in the distance can be reached, giving you real freedom to explore and plot your way around quests. Combat is in real time and you are free to roam the seamless universe without having to endure random encounters, making Xenoblade Chronicles a real departure from traditional RPGs.

Xenoblade Chronicles brings to life a universe where two titans, Bionis and Mechonis, collide in a war that knows no end. As the aeons pass, the lifeless bodies of the titans remain and life soon evolves on each world. The two main races, the Mechon (a race of robots) and the Homs (humans) are locked in battle for control of the world. You join the battle for Bionis to repel the invasion of the terrifying mechanical army and uncover the secrets of a mystical sword called the Monado.
