About Heaven’s Vault
Honored by the Guardian as one of the best games of 2019 so far, Heaven’s Vault is an ambitious open-world adventure with a massive branching storyline and an entire lost language to decipher.
You are archeologist Aliya Elasra, on a mission with your robot assistant Six to track down a missing academic who has left a trail of ancient relics in his wake. Sail to the far reaches of the Nebula to solve a historical mystery that can only be understood by translating the long-lost language of Aliya’s ancestors — a massive linguistic puzzle that will reveal the region’s earliest secrets to those who manage to crack it.
But your translations could be wrong, and you’ll never know. Heaven’s Vault adapts with a story that seamlessly, fluidly reflects your choices — a story that will be different for every person who plays it.
