Years after the events of the first .hack games, the popular MMORPG "The World" has been resurrected. The story follows Haseo, a "Player Killer Killer" known as the "Terror of Death", a former member of the disbanded Twilight Brigade guild.
He is searching a "Player Killer" known as Tri-Edge, whose victims supposedly are unable to return to "The World" after he PKs them. Haseo's friend, Shino, was attacked six months prior to the events of the game by Tri-Edge, and the player herself, Shino Nanao, was left in a coma. Haseo believes that defeating Tri-Edge is the only way to bring back Shino.
