Bandai Namco revealed that their upcoming monster slaying action-RPG title, God Eater 3, will feature a special unique mission called Assault Mission, which will allow players to engage in eight player co-op. The previous games in the series allowed for a maximum of four player co-op.
In the God Eater universe, Earth is no longer what it used to be due to the misery and destruction caused by the terrifying Aragami. These creatures can only be defeated by utilizing the God Arcs, biomechanical hybrid weapons developed by a company called Fenrir. The God Eaters – men who have been gifted or cursed with new versions of the God Arc weapons – are the only ones able to wield them.
Prior to God Eater 3, many regions have been turned into uninhabitable and hostile Ashlands by ash-like particles that deteriorate anything they touch. The few people that survived these cataclysmic events where forced to create underground bases that are called ports. Within the Ashlands, there are brand new fierce Ash Aragami such as Anubis and Ra that provide the ultimate challenge for the God Eaters. However, not only the Aragami have changed: God Eater 3 will introduce Adaptive God Eaters (AGE), who are different to the God Eaters of the past. The AGE are even closer to Aragami which makes them stronger and deadlier in combat as well as more resistant to Ashlands.
God Eater 3 releases in early 2019 on PS4 and PC.
