Get Indulge in Gratuitous Pleasure and Get Lost in a Strange Island

Welcome to Metropolis! In this capital of eternal night, there are endless lights and drinks. Tailor-made services by the media and entertainment industries make people unable to think. The only thing you can do is get indulged in pleasure and depravity, and completely become a part of the city. However, if you refuse to succumb to degeneration, you might discover the jaw-dropping secret of the metropolis: The city's colorful neon lights hide an enigmatic creature known as the "Color Out of Space." They attract and alienate countless people who have fallen into pleasure, making them lose themselves and become tools. Nevertheless, knowing the truth is far from enough. The time you wake up from your desires, you begin to despair.

Identity V’s [Call of the Abyss V] is set at the everlasting Metropolis, waiting for you, in the light of "Color Out of Space.", to sink into abyss together – or to change it forever.

With the opening of the COA 5, the cutting-edge fashion from the metropolis has spread out. The controllers use entertainment to paralyze their citizens, manipulate public opinion to deceive the emotions of the public, and cover one lie with another, while the awakened ones stick to the only promised land, with grandiose resistance, lonely warnings, and hidden editing, trying to stimulate the nerves of the lost. The conformers are gradually captured by the brilliance of neon lights and eventually drifted into tools of the city. In this city, which represents desires, will fail to hide the decadent truth even with the most gorgeous clothes in the end.

[Call of the Abyss V] of Identity V will be open on December 23rd. Now go register at COA5 reservation page and get more details and get 3 COA5 Abyss Treasures as a reward.
