GAMEPLAY

Heaven’s Vault is a narrative adventure with an entire hieroglyphic language to decipher. Sail the massive open world of the Nebula, tracking down distant moons.

Translate inscriptions written in an ancient language, in a game-spanning, interlocking puzzle where every solution - right or wrong - becomes part of your story.

Meet, charm, outwit, and befriend a diverse range of characters who remember everything you say and do. Will you make friends, or enemies? Only you can decide: every action you take will have consequences.

Unearth the Nebula's buried history in a fluid, ever-changing story that adapts in real-time around your actions and your choices.
