Soul Covenant: A VR Action Game Set in a Desolated Future Japan
Get ready to immerse yourself in a thrilling sci-fi battle of man versus machine with Soul Covenant, a highly anticipated virtual reality (VR) action game set to arrive next year on Quest, PSVR 2, and PC VR platforms. Developed by Thirdverse, the game takes place in a desolated near-future Japan and promises intense tactical combat. As you inhabit the role of an enhanced human known as an “Avatar,” you must confront an AI-controlled weapon called the ‘Deus Ex Machina’ and protect humanity’s last stronghold, the ‘Tokyo Ark,’ from a catastrophic event known as the ‘Remastering.’
Battle as an Avatar and Unleash Transformable Weapons
In Soul Covenant, you take on the role of an Avatar, an enhanced human with exceptional combat abilities. Armed with a transformable weapon called ‘The Scapegoat,’ crafted from the remains of fallen comrades, you engage in hack-and-slash combat and utilize shooting mechanics to fend off the AI-controlled enemies. The game combines the best of both worlds, offering exhilarating close-quarters combat and intense ranged battles.
Soul Covenant not only focuses on the action-packed gameplay but also delves into the emotional aspect of the story. As an Avatar, you face the challenge of protecting not only yourself but also the remnants of humanity. The game explores the themes of sacrifice, loyalty, and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
