2nd Anniversary Event [UNDER TIDES] PVs

UNDER TIDES Event Content PV

Translation by Lauli:

A hunter is nothing without their home.

Logically, when I came here, I should've been able to start a good life.

But none of us can escape the past.

If one day, your home finds you...

Do you know how many ruins like this exists in the once-glorious Iberia?

You can still remember Aegir's song, I'm glad.

"You wan't to see her, don't you?"

A hunter walks onto the shore.

To protect Iberia's purity and virtue.

We stand together, our hearts, body, and faith will grow more resilient.

UNDER TIDES - Skadi The Corrupting Heart - PV

Translation by Lauli:

Sixth mission.

My kin were dragged into the trench, their screams were masked by the noises of eating.

Seventeenth mission.

When I returned home, the door was open, and the smell of blood came out of the room.

Fourth bounty mission.

My partners all went missing. Under the sun, salt crystals formed on my skin.

Rhodes Island. Regular checkup.

I must find them this time. I must.
