At the end of 2019 Japanese developer, MyDearest Inc. announced work had begun on Tokyo Chronos sequel ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos. Today, a new trailer has arrived alongside more story details and a release window.
ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos takes place 300 years after the events in Tokyo Chronos, set in a world where humanity seeks refuge underground from deadly creatures known as Meteora. “Earth’s last hope lies within Chloe, a genetically enhanced soldier who seeks to deliver humanity from their end, while out for vengeance against the monstrosities that took her only friend,” notes the synopsis.
From the cockpit of giant mechs, you’ll go head-to-head with these creatures in epic battles, aided by cyber diva Noa, who helps Chloe through song. Noa happens to be a new symbol of hope for humanity, performing vibrant live concert sequences for fans. She also happens to look familiar to Chloe’s lost friend.
An interactive experience like before, ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos will offer multiple endings depending on the choices you make as Chloe, trying to unravel the mysteries behind the hellish behemoths and the beloved diva.
“The response to Tokyo Chronos was incredible, but our community felt like we couldn’t stop there. We had to continue exploring that world,” said Haruki Kashiwakura, director in a statement. “ALTDEUS propels us into the future with an all-new cast, taking us to brand new highs in VR storytelling. We think this new saga is even more ambitious and only improves upon the formula from Tokyo Chronos.”
ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos is currently slated for a Q4 2020 launch on Oculus platforms, available with English and Japanese voice acting and Chinese (Simplified), German, and French subtitles. For further updates on the sci-fi anime keep reading VRFocus.
