It may be because Chapter 3 was much shorter than both of the chapters that came before it - or perhaps it was my 2019 New Years Resolution to not "Break The Chain" - but WOW! I'm already done with it! Now the game is (quite literally) on a highway to hell with this final chapter; now is when we really get into the nitty gritty of this little thing called "The Abyss" *dramatic chord, lightning & thunder*.
The party isn't quite what it used to be, but that doesn't mean that you're going to be going it alone. Whether or not you took the time to recruit during Chapter 3, you'll still get your chance to rally the troops before tackling... the Abyss! *dramatic chord, lightning & thunder*
And of course, what makes chapters 3 & 4 all the more entertaining is because this is when the game's oodles of noodles side-content really becomes accessible. You had a good quest to go on once you'd opened up the flagship dungeon of the second chapter, but now you've got optional characters, quests, loot and more - with even more being released as the plot thickens (perhaps you've found a few mementos on your journey?). SO MUCH... but it's all dictated by you and your drive to quest. This isn't a game that really beats you over the head with all the stuff you could do, but allows you to go seeking them out if you want to (something I feel we've lost in this new "achievement"-based future we've stumbled headlong into).
If you want to run straight to the finish line and see the conclusion of your quest, be my guest, and I promise to deliver every step of the way.
I'm not feeling confident enough to project a release date yet (still have a lot of business to do on that end), but I'm shooting for a 2019 release.
