More on Agarest: Generations of War 2
One day, the world was enveloped by a mysterious blinding light causing terrible destruction. The central continent, from where the light is believed to have originated, fell silent whilst demons began to spread throughout the world like a plague.
Sometime afterwards, a young man by the name of Weiss, suffering from amnesia, encounters the enigmatic Eva, from whom Weiss learns that he has committed the grievous sin of deicide. In order to atone for his crime, he must become the “Vessel” in which the power of the divinity he slaughtered will be stored. For it will be that power which will be used to resurrect the one whose life he stole.
For those who betray the divine will pay for their sins in the space which separates salvation and damnation, as will their progeny.

- HD graphics: Enjoy your favourite characters, environments and CGs in high-definition!
