The First Descendant is a f2p 3rd-person co-op action/RPG shooter where you play as Descendants who inherited the unknown powers and make them stronger to fight against the invaders and protect humans.

The First Descendant presents beautiful visuals and attractive and unique characters based in a sci-fi-style player vs. environment worldview. It also provides exciting battles using various skills, actions, and guns, as well as the fun of high-quality PvE shooter battles that target huge bosses.

A variety of equipment is necessary for growth, and you can obtain them through clearing scenario missions within the game or in the World Missions where cooperation is crucial and battles with huge bosses.

The player becomes a Descendant in the game and is given a mission to fight against the invaders for the survival of humans and to protect the ‘Ingris continent’.
