BTS, for the unaware, is a ludicrously popular South Korean boy band who have amassed a huge following since their debut in 2013. Looking to capitalise on that, Netmarble is now publishing their second game based on the boys. It’s called BTS Universe Story and it’s set to release for iOS and Android on October 29th and you can pre-register your interest today.
However, the main selling point of the game is that players can create and share their own stories with other fans.
That’s right, BTS Universe Story is essentially aiming to be a fanfiction creator that will help players bring their stories to life using the in-game production tools.
Alongside that, there will be the Play Story mode, as mentioned above, where players can experience pre-made interactive stories where their dialogue choices will shape the narrative. Beyond that, there is an AR mode and Collection function where they can customise the outfits of the BTS characters.
You can check out the BTS World Universe’s official website for more details.
I’m not going to sit here and pretend I know anything about BTS, braver men than I have tried to get involved in the mythos of the ever-popular group with mixed results.
