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.

Explore sites in any order you want. Dig as deep as you choose. Heaven's Vault is an adventure game filled with secrets - where you can never get stuck, and will never run out of things to discover.

Every player's journey through the Nebula will be different, and New Game Plus mode enables further adventures, harder translations, and deeper exploration into the mysteries of the Nebula.
