Developed by Netease Games, Project Mugen is an open world RPG that will be free to play on PC, mobile and Playstation 4/5.

From the Press Release:

"Project Mugen is our love letter to urban fantasies. We wanted to create a world that players could relate to, yet find enough mysteries to keep them coming back. The city is alive, and every player will have their unique journey through it," said Riten Huang, Senior Marketing Director at Thunder Fire Studio.

In a world reminiscent of Earth, where urban legends become reality and humans coexist with the supernatural, players step into the role of an Esper, known as the "Infinite Trigger." This top investigator navigates through vibrant cities, confronting anomalies and supernatural occurrences that threaten the balance of this unique urban paradise. Along the journey, players will team up with various Espers, each with their own stories, to tackle the Chaos endangering humanity. Dive deep into the mysteries, explore the city life, and forge unforgettable memories with your companions. As players navigate through the game, they'll embark on a quest to recover lost memories, confront challenges in various distinct cities, and work to unlock the key to saving the world.

"Today's unveiling of 'Project Mugen' extends beyond this announcement; it represents NetEase Games’ spirit of global collaboration, creativity, and innovation to push the envelope in interactive storytelling. This project draws on development talent from Hangzhou to Montreal, reflecting our dedication to transcending boundaries and redefining gaming experiences,” said Ethan Wang, Senior Vice President, NetEase, Inc. “By merging a modern metropolis setting with elements of mysticism, we’re excited to create a world where every player can find a moment that resonates with them."

  • Fast Paced Traversal and Vehicles: Every character has a basic movement skill such as parkour, swinging, or wall-climbing. Some characters also have a unique travel ability based on their individual identity, like riding a special war hammer. Players can also intercept and ride vehicles like cars in the city.
