TOKYO - August 5, 2021 - Today, Thirdverse launched the Tesseract Abyss 2 update for its renowned VR sword-action game SWORDS of GARGANTUA, which offers three new enemies and more challenging and strategic battles that will put even the strongest warriors to the test.

In December 2019, Thirdverse released the original Tesseract Abyss Adventure Mode expansion, which puts players into the deepest layers of the 4D space known as the “Tesseract”. By using weapons and coins earned by playing this mode, players (single or multiplayer) can continue into the abyss, gradually becoming stronger through equipment and abilities.
 
This newest expansion will provide SWORDS of GARGANTUA players with hours of sword-wielding multiplayer battle. Tesseract Abyss 2 offers new enemies, new weapons, and more challenging and strategic battles that test the strength of even the most seasoned warriors.
 
Masaru Ohnogi, Co-Founder and CBO of Thirdverse, said: “Since the release of the first Tesseract Abyss in 2019, we’ve had many requests from fans to expand our adventure mode with new challenging battles, and we’re pleased to do that now. We’re excited to see the response to Tesseract Abyss 2 as more players are introduced to SWORDS of GARGANTUA this year.”
 
SWORDS of GARGANTUA is a VR sword-action game you can experience in single-player mode or online co-op with up to 3 other players on Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, HTC VIVE COSMOS, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality devices. Players make use of various weapons and abilities to take on difficult battles along their journey. A wide variety of weapons are available, including one and two-handed swords, axes, maces, boomerangs, shields, and more. While in-game, players can use voice chat to communicate with fellow warriors while taking on enemies.
 
Key Features:
  • New Challenges in Tesseract Abyss 2: Defeat three new enemies – including a massive new foe, Galossus – while traversing through the new, more challenging battles that await you in the Abyss.
  • Realistic VR Swordsmanship: Swing, stab, crush and parry. Wield dozens of discoverable weapons and fight your way through 101 floors of enemies hell-bent on stopping you from reaching the colossal end-boss, Gargantua.
  • Rogue-lite Action: Each play through gives different floor advancement choices along the way; play it safe, but it’ll take more battles to reach the end, or skip to a deeper level and be cursed with major disadvantages and debuffs while fighting tougher enemies.
  • Character Progression: Keep all the weapons, items, coins and stat upgrades collected through each play permanently. Take excess weapons and combine them to make stronger versions to aid in progressively difficult battles.
  • Co-op Multiplayer: Play with up to three other adventurers. Call the shots with native voice chat and defeat the mighty Gargantua.
