Bandai Namco has revealed the anime-style opening movie for God Eater 3, which highlights the game's several characters and showcases some of the monsters players will face throughout the game. Fans of the series will also spot a familiar face halfway through the opening.
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 on the 8th of February on PS4 and PC.
