ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos, the sci-fi, anime-style adventure with a twisting narrative and difficult choices, brings hope to the last of humanity when the industry veterans comprising MyDearest Inc. bring their next title to the Oculus platform on Dec. 3.
As a sequel to the innovative TOKYO CHRONOS, ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos is set 300 years after the events of the first title. On a mission for vengeance against the evil that took her friend, enter Chloe, a genetically enhanced super-soldier tasked with delivering humanity from their end. Giant beasts known only as Meteora wreak havoc in a futuristic Japan, where this young pilot must suit up in her giant mech with an unlikely cast of friends to challenge their fate.
Become a Makhia pilot from the seat of monstrous mecha suits reaching hundreds of meters tall and go head-to-head with frightening Meteora. Team up with Noa in the cockpit, Augmented Tokyo’s brilliant cyber diva, who serves as the new world’s last symbol of hope and trusted aid on the battlefield. During battle, Noa will guide the pace of every fight for Chloe’s life through changing songs and helpful instructions.
After intense battles between giant behemoths, choose between other gameplay modes as ALTDEUS brings pilots out of the cockpit and into Augmented Tokyo. Advance the story in adventure mode, where a twisting tale of intrigue leads to multiple endings and unexpected conclusions through Chloe’s dialogue choices. If adventure and battle are temporarily out of the question, visit Noa’s shining concert hall, where the enchanting diva will put on stunning virtual performances brought to life in VR.
Encounter a charming cast of characters like the quick-tempered pilot of the Ares Makhia, Yamato Amanagi, Chloe’s best friend and motivation to keep fighting, Coco, and the mad genius of Prometheus, Julie, all designed by renowned character artist LAM. Suit up in stylish mechs created by the famous mecha designer I-IV (Aldnoah.Zero, 86, Re:Creators) and indulge in a virtual world crafted by all-star talent.
ALTDEUS delivers the quality and adventure expected of 2019’s TOKYO CHRONOS with even more bonuses. English voice acting implementation brings characters to life for new audiences while high energy inspiring J-Pop tunes from R!N Gemie (PROMARE, Attack on Titan Season 2) delight series fans.
“Working with virtual reality as a medium adds thrilling new dimensions to development and demands we create worlds that feel alive and enticing to explore,” said Haruki Kashiwakura, game director, MyDearest. “LAM’s character designs, I-IV’s mecha construction, and R!N Gemie’s heart-pounding music tracks have come together in an all-star team that completes the experience.”
ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos will be available on the Oculus Platform with English and Japanese voice acting and Chinese (Simplified), German, and French subtitles.
