Teaser Trailer

Challenge your fate x Like never before

Set in a near-future desolate Japan, this game depicts a fierce battle between humanity and machines.

That ecstatic feeling when overcoming the seemingly impossible challenge of certain doom will reward those who brave the storm.

The moving experience of a story of life told through death. It is through the eyes of the fallen and the experiences of the vanquished that you will find their sacrifices serve to guide your hand in retribution.

A VR Tactical Action game experience with a high level of immersion, where the player will be one with the protagonist and take on a battle for the fate of the world.


The game is being developed as the culmination of VR action that Thirdverse has cultivated so far. In addition to the immersive action, the game aims to create a more dramatic world by assembling a team of exceptional creators in each field, such as story, music, and character design. Please look forward to the soul-stirring battle sensation and emotional experience they have created.
