Beyond the Dawn begins one year after the conclusion of the events of Tales of Arise. Alphen and the others are caught between being exalted as Heroes Liberating Dahna and criticized as Destroyers of Rights by the people of Rena.
By chance, Alphen and his group meet a young girl named Nazamil, who is the daughter of Lord Renan and a Dhanan. Will the group be able to change the fate of the girl who will eventually fall under the mask’s curse?
Explore the world again with party members who are connected by a strong bond, experience exciting new challenges, and see a world that is both familiar but has evolved since the conclusion of the original story.

Further, there will be new dungeons, quests, and costumes. While this takes place after the main game, “a certain level of skills and other statuses are provided at the start” for all players to be at the “appropriate level of design.”
“…we did not adopt a simple transfer of levels and statuses from the main game. Instead, we have prepared bonuses such as money and skill points based on the clear data of the main game.”
Moreover, Tales of Arise: Beyond the Dawn Edition was announced for ¥6,800. It includes the base game and Beyond the Dawn. However, the base game does not have any DLC attached to it in this package.
