About SoulWorker

SoulWorker is an anime action MMO where players choose between four heroes Haru, Lilly, Stella or Erwin are confronted by merciless creatures in a post-apocalyptic world. A world threatened by the Great Void, an all-absorbing portal which has been the cause of death for many people already, and which paved the way for countless demons to arrive. As a SoulWorker, a survivor of the void with supernatural abilities, players put a stop to forces of evil in quick and intense battles. The emotions of SoulWorkers are so strong that they are able to transform their souls into powerful weapons. But first they have to learn how to handle their newly acquired strength – and do so before all of humanity is wiped out. After having made big waves in Korea and Japan already, SoulWorker has now opened its doors to Europe and North America. The anime action MMO can be downloaded for free at or on Steam
