Due to frequent troubles, it was decided that service would end for the massively multiplayer online RPG, "The World R:2."

One year and three months after the events of .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption, Haseo, who retired from "The World R:2" and was investigating, receives a mysterious e-mail hinting at the location of his friend Ovan, who was thought to have disappeared beyond the network.

The final promise that he could not keep... In order to locate Ovan before service ends on December 31, 2018, Haseo will once again log into the game and save his friend before time runs out.

Over the course of his quest to save Ovan, who has been imprisoned in ice at the new location "Great Cavity Qua Holm," Haseo will undergo yet another transformation and unlock a 5th form. A Job Extend of his Xth form, this is a natural progression of Haseo's Adept Rogue class, where his abilities increase as he grows.
