Bandai Namco shared a big batch of new screenshots for .hack//G.U. Last Recode that tell us more about what’s going on in the new Volume 4 story that was recently revealed.
The story of the new fourth volume is a direct sequel that takes place after the events of .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption, where Haseo logs onto The World R:2 after a year and three months of not logging on. He decides to get on after receiving a strange email with the location of his old friend Ovan who had gone missing.
Upon arriving at Qha Holme Caverns, Haseo finds Ovan frozen and attempts to break him out, but he soon realizes that he doesn’t possess the power to break the ice.
In the new volume, we’ll see Haseo’s new 5th form. We’ll also meet a new character named Kusabira, a mysterious girl who appears to know about what’s going on at Qha Holme Cavern.
Haseo will have to gather again with his old friends in order to find a way to save Ovan… before The World R:2 shuts down on December 31, 2018.
.hack//G.U. Last Recode will release in Japan on November 1, 2017 for the PlayStation 4 and PC. The game releases in North America and Europe this fall.
