Description of Project Mugen
Project Mugen (unofficial title) is a highly anticipated urban open-world RPG that is set to amaze players with its intricate cityscape and deep story.
Developed by NetEase Games as a transnational project together with Thunder Fire Studio subsidiary Naked Rain, Project Mugen incorporates team members from Hangzhou and Montreal and is a testament to the fusion of diverse cultures and gaming expertise.
Coming to PS5, PS4, PC, iOS, and Android, Project Mugen will launch as a free-to-play game.
In a world reminiscent of Earth, where urban legends become reality and humans coexist with the supernatural, players take on the role of an Esper, known as “Infinite Trigger”.
These top investigators explore vibrant cities, encountering anomalies and supernatural occurrences that threaten the balance of these unique urban paradises.
Along the way, players will team up with various Espers, each with their own story, to overcome the Chaos that endangers humanity.
Dive into the mystery, explore city life, and forge unforgettable memories with your friends. As players navigate the game, they will embark on quests to recover lost memories, face challenges in different cities, and work to unlock keys to save the world.
Some key features:
- Urban, Open-World Setting – Explore a vast map that provides a rich experience of city life. From neon-lit nightlife to serene parks, every corner of the city holds a story. Go on open-ended explorations, climb skyscrapers, dive into subways, and interact with dynamic environments that react to your every move.
- Unique Combat Experience – Engage in team-based combat with four characters, each with different attributes that synergize with each other. Make use of environmental objects in battle and utilize the urban terrain to take on monsters in a variety of ways.
- Captivating Artistic Style – Project Mugen is more than just a game; it’s a visual journey. The art direction, a blend of modern aesthetics with subtle touches, promises to captivate players at every turn.
- Fast Paced Traversal and Vehicles – Each character has basic movement skills such as parkour, swinging, or climbing walls. Some characters also have unique travel abilities based on their individual identities, such as riding a special war hammer. Players can also intercept and drive vehicles such as cars in the city.
Project Mugen will release on PS5, PS4, iOS, Android, and PC, but the game doesn’t have a release date yet.
