This game certainly has a story. It's just not shoved down our throats like a "classic" JRPG does(Final Fantasy, Tales of, Dragon Quest). The story in this game is really just a quick atmospheric intro, and the rest is for us to discover as we explore demon-infested ruins and speak with fellow survivors.

The IGN video review says that there's no "quests," no "cinematics." That doesn't mean there's no story.

The story is, that you are trapped in a purgatory type land of the living dead with other players who you only see as phantoms. You meet various NPC's throughout the journey and you uncover the story of the game world piece by piece, but the only plot and story involving your character is the one you experience every second you are playing this game. With the massive open world, and the pvp and co-op experiences, each day you play this game you will walk away with a new story to tell from your experiences...

There's obviously some story. It's not like you select New Game and instantly appear in the middle of a field. There's backstory and there's lore. Like a Metroid game, if you've ever played one.

The game has a story it's just the story isn't told in a matter where stuff just happens around you. I'll put it this way, it's an RPG literally where you kind of build the story from the lore they placed in the game.Yes the people in the game give the story weight but no you could honestly skip people and not miss a thing because it's not the focus.

You'd actually miss out on a lot, because the setting on its own isn't nearly as interesting as it is when it's populated with these other people and their tales of how they came to be there.
