◆ A New Generation VR Sword-Fighting Action
Designed with casual players in mind, this title brings a “new generation of VR sword-fighting action” to the VR world.

ALTAIR BREAKER also enables multiplayer for up to four players and cross-play between Meta Quest 2 and PCVR, leaving players free to be matched with users from all over the world and communicate via voice chat.

◆ Introducing the World of ALTAIR BREAKER
The game takes place in an aerial city located in the VR world called “Altair”, where AI was created in the past to help and develop singularity-like creatures. Once a group of islands covered in a sea of clouds, most of the islands have collapsed to this day. Now they are nothing but ruins floating in the void, with the experimental battle AIs left behind and free to wander around. Players are guided by the humanoid AI that observes this land and challenged to fight against the vicious battle AI.
