  • About Fate/Grand Order



Based on the immensely popular Fate franchise by TYPE-MOON, Fate/Grand Order is a free-to-
play role-playing game developed by the FGO Project, consisting of DELiGHTWORKS, Aniplex,
and Notes.



          

In a world where humanity’s existence is in peril, players take on the role of "Master", with the ability
to summon and command powerful familiars known as "Servants". These "Servants" are powerful
reincarnations based on historical figures such as King Arthur, Jeanne d'Arc, and Alexander the
Great. To avert the extinction of mankind, players must embark on a quest known as the "Grand Order",where they must travel back in time to fix the space-time anomalies together with their "Servants."

Along with TYPE-MOON's Takashi Takeuchi and Kinoko Nasu (who are also the original creators of
Fate/stay night and Fate/Zero), Fate/Grand Order features the work of numerous renowned
illustrators as well as a stellar vocal cast. The main story narrative is presented in a visual novel
format, and each "Servant" often has their own personal scenario which the player can explore.
Notable for its elaborate scenarios, the sheer volume of lines have made up more than a million
words to keep players entertained.

While knowledge about the Fate franchise may increase one’s enjoyment in playing the game,
newcomers may be glad to know that it is not necessary to be familiar with its other media (such as
the animation) as Fate/Grand Order follows a new and different storyline.






“Fate/Grand Order is a tactical, turn based RPG which features several chapters that takes the players to a different notable point in human history,” says Yosuke Shiokawa, Creative Producer of the FGO Project. “Together with different seasonal events, players will be put to the test with challenging missions and quests. One of the greatest appeals of Fate/Grand Order is that it is easy to learn, but hard to master. The game requires both in-depth strategy and skill to advance the player through ever changing obstacles.”



  • Fate/Grand Order story summary
  • AD. 2017: The last era in which Magecraft still existed. Society was created by human hands, but Mages grasped the truth of the world. Magecraft is comprised of techniques from past humans that cannot be explained by science, while science encompasses the techniques of future humans that Magecraft cannot achieve.
  • AD. 1950: Successful creation of the Phenomenon Recording Cyber Daemon: Laplace
  • AD. 1990: Completion of the Global Environment Model: Chaldeas
  • AD. 1999: Completion of the Near-Future Observation Lens: Sheba
  • AD. 2004: Completion of the Heroic Spirit Summoning System: Fate
  • AD. 2017: Completion of the Spiritron Calculation Engine: Trismegistus


The organization has continued to churn out splendid achievements, and thanks to Chaldea, the
continued history of the human race was ensured up to 100 years in the future. But then, in 2017,
without warning, the future domain recorded by Sheba vanished. Calculations identified proved the
extinction of humanity in 2019. The researchers of Chaldea were perplexed.
Then, Sheba detected a new abnormality, in AD. 2004, a certain provincial town in Japan. For the
first time ever, a region that could not be observed appeared.

Assuming that this was the cause of humanity’s extinction, Chaldea carried out its sixth experiment,
though it was still untested: Time travel into the past. They would convert Mages into Spiritrons in a
forbidden ceremony and send them back in time.

By intervening in events, they would locate, identify, and destroy the space-time Singularities. They
called the mission the Quest for the Holy Grail: Grand Order.

This is the title for those who would make a stand against human history, and battle fate in order to
protect humanity.
