Man Versus Machine
Man versus machine is a battle as old as sci-fi itself. However, this story invokes life through death and brings a war to save humanity to life. Today, Thirdverse, Co., Ltd. is excited to announce that their new VR title, Soul Covenant, is set to release in 2024. Releasing on PSVR2, Meta Quest 2, and PCVR, the game combines virtual reality and tactical action to bring forth an emotional narrative. Of course, a press release provides more information about the game. Additionally, a teaser trailer gives players a look at the flesh versus metal action.
Soul Covenant introduces players to a dystopian society where an artificial intelligence has ascended to godhood. This A.I., Adam, believes a god is to be feared. Of course, humanity is not going to take this lying down. Players take on the role of enhanced humans known as avatars. Importantly, these avatars are defenders of humanity’s last stronghold. However, there is an important aspect to the avatar’s weaponry: they are created from the bodies of fallen avatars. OF course, this creates a cycle where the dead aid the living to continue their mission. As the avatars say, “I’ll go pick up the bones.”
Importantly, the game combines VR action where players will use their weapons to hack and slash through hordes of robotic enemies. Interestingly, gamers can get a look at this action in the new teaser trailer for the game. Check it out below.
Soul Covenant is releasing for PSVR2, Meta Quest 2, and PCVR in early 2024. Additionally, the world’s first trial of the game will be available at the Tokyo Game Show 2023.
