The First Descendant: A Story Summary [VIDEO]

Nexon has also revealed when the PC beta test of the free-to-play, third-person cooperative action-RPG shooter will start (this time without any delays).


Nexon wrote the following about the cinematic story video: “The new cinematic explains how almost a century ago humans were defeated by the Vulgus, invaders from another world, who were followed by the Colossi to decimate civilization. However, humans found a shred of hope for the future. Using the reawakened ancestors’ power, Descendants fought back with newfound strength to finally defeat the invaders. Humans survived, but a new threat emerged. Karel, the new evil Vulgus leader, leads the world to eternal darkness. Now, the Descendant must fight back once again to save humanity from the brink of collapse.”
