Game Overview

The game brings players in a futuristic city known as Ark. One day, the city of Ark was hit by a disaster when the gates of another dimension suddenly appear. Deadly creatures begin to emerge, wreaking havoc to the entire city and normal police forces are unable to hinder them from attacking the land.

As a solution, a brand new special unit called Neuron is formed to stand up against these foes. And this is where you’ll come in action. You’ll be able to choose between a male and a female character. During your adventure, the character you don’t choose will still be a part of Neuron and will appear as your younger twin.

More so, humanity developed a powerful weapon known as the Legion. Work in tandem with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to take down your enemies.
