Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, every player’s story influences the connected gaming experience and evolving narrative. “Governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped,” all by players’ actions.

The Horizons season is now included with the game.

The World Next Door tells the story of Jun, a teenager trapped in a parallel realm inhabited by magical creatures, who must find her way home before time runs out.

It contains a mix of visual novel elements, storytelling, and fast puzzle battles.

Here’s more:

  • Journey into Emrys, a magical world brought to life with anime-inspired characters designed by Lord Gris
  • Use magical runes and the help of friends to defeat opponents and find a way home
  • Cast spells in fast-paced, real-time combat that mixes the fun of puzzle-combos with action gameplay
  • Immerse yourself in a supernatural story with branching dialogue and reputation systems that affect your relationships with characters in the game
  • Focus on the story while still enjoying the gameplay with Assist Mode
  • Challenge your friends in the lightning-fast Versus Mode

The next game to be made available for free through the Epic Games Store will be Mudrunner.
