Scarlet Nexus Details

The game is set in a far distant future. A psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain. This granted people extra-sensory powers and changed the world. Just as humanity was entering this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky. They came not for peace, but with a thirst for human brains.

The Others proved to be resistant to conventional attack methods. As such, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those who had developed the extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were the only chance to fight the onslaught.

Psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defense. Players of PlayStation 5 game Scarlet Nexus will take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi, a new recruit to the OSF aiming to become an elite psionic.

Players will explore the futuristic city of New Himuka and uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities. All the while armed with a talent in psycho-kinesis for intense battles with the Others.

Scarlet Nexus is the first PlayStation 5 game available for pre-order on PlayStation 5. Other PlayStation 5 games recently confirmed include Codemasters’ DiRT 5. More titles are set to be revealed very soon, though the official unveiling was recently delayed in honour of the Black Lives Matter movement.
