Death End re;Quest Announced for PC; Coming in Spring 2019

Today Idea Factory International announced the PC version of the JRPG by Compile Heart Death End re;Quest.

The game, which was formerly a PS4 exclusive, will be released on Steam this spring. At the moment a specific release date has not been announced. On the other hand, the dedicated store page has already been opened.

Most DLC excluding the Bonus Weapon one (which was a pre-order exclusive for PS4) will be available at launch. The Summer Swimsuit Bundle DLC will launch on June 4. Yes. We don’t have a precise release date for the game, but we know exactly when the bikinis will be released.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read an official description below.

Story
Arata Mizunashi, a video game programmer, receives a notification from an email sent to him by Shina Ninomiya, a colleague of his who went missing nearly one year ago. Together, they worked to create World’s Odyssey (W.O.D.), an immersive virtual landscape powered by breathtaking, state-of-the-art technology. That is, until Shina’s sudden disappearance put a swift halt to production. Arata discovers the startling revelation that Shina Ninomiya was stuck inside of “W.O.D.” the whole time. When Arata delves hurriedly back into the lines of code haunting his forsaken project, he realizes that his game is now ravaged by an infestation of bugs, and that Shina is its only active player.

Arata soon learns that a nefarious force prevents him from extracting Shina out of the game. Her only way out? She must complete the game to unlock the perfect ending—an outcome with a success rate of 1%. On their journey, they encounter a slew of NPC characters that blur perceptions of humanity and A.I.-technology, setting into a motion a thrilling narrative that calls into question the differences between the virtual world and ours.

Little do they know what horrors await them on both sides of the screen…

Key Features
