Death end re;Quest Plugs Into Steam This Spring

Plug into World’s Odyssey… through your PC! We are excited to announce that Death end re;Quest will be headed to Steam® this Spring! The game includes all the original game content found in the Japanese version. Steam users will also be able to grab the free and paid DLC originally available in the PlayStation® 4 version, with the exception of the Bonus Weapon DLC (PlayStation™ Network & Physical Retail Exclusives). The DLC will be available upon launch, except the Summer Swimsuit Bundle DLC, which is scheduled for June 4. As an added bonus, the Steam® version will include Japanese and Traditional Chinese subtitles.

Death end re;Quest™ takes the classic turn-based RPG and turns it on its head, allowing you to jump at will between the RPG action of the game world, and the investigative visual novel segments of the real world. You’ll need to explore both to unearth the mysteries of the game. In the game world, you’ll fight engaging RPG battles where you can create chain reaction attacks with the right angles, and even switch game genres from RPG into fighting, shooting, slot, puzzle, and billiards! In the realm of game development, it may seem all fun and games until the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur.

Story

Arata Mizunashi, a video game programmer, receives a notification from an email sent to him by Shina Ninomiya, a colleague of his who went missing nearly one year ago. Together, they worked to create World’s Odyssey (W.O.D.), an immersive virtual landscape powered by breathtaking, state-of-the-art technology. That is, until Shina’s sudden disappearance put a swift halt to production. Arata discovers the startling revelation that Shina Ninomiya was stuck inside of “W.O.D.” the whole time. When Arata delves hurriedly back into the lines of code haunting his forsaken project, he realizes that his game is now ravaged by an infestation of bugs, and that Shina is its only active player.

Arata soon learns that a nefarious force prevents him from extracting Shina out of the game. Her only way out? She must complete the game to unlock the perfect ending—an outcome with a success rate of 1%. On their journey, they encounter a slew of NPC characters that blur perceptions of humanity and A.I.-technology, setting into a motion a thrilling narrative that calls into question the differences between the virtual world and ours.

Little do they know what horrors await them on both sides of the screen…
