Ember Knights Story Showcased in New Cinematic
Players will play as the Ember Knights, powerful and legendary heroes who only appear when the world faces immense calamity. Esper, the Keeper of the Nexus, will require players to fight their way through the Prime Worlds to stop Praxis and save the Universe.
As players progress through the game, they will discover how Praxis, who was once Esper’s best friend, became a mad sorcerer after Esper was chosen by the Architect to become the new Keeper of the Nexus. Double-crossed and enraged, Praxis then traveled through the Prime Worlds until he found a dark spot in the Universe. There, he began to plot his revenge and to build his own version of the Nexus.
After an age of isolation, Praxis returned and his entire being has been consumed by anger and resentment. Conjuring his hordes, he launched an attack on the Nexus with the sole purpose of destroying those who have betrayed him and taking his revenge. In a final effort, Esper mustered up his remaining strength to summon the Ember Knights.
