Interactive social game app “BTS Universe Story” launched worldwide.
All seven BTS superstars will be virtually controlled by their fans (aka BTS ARMY) in the new interactive game “BTS Universe Story”, which will soon be free to download for fans.
“BTS Universe Story” will be officially released at 11am KST on September 24 (10pm ET on Wednesday, September 23). It can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

한 자리 에 모인 일곱 명의 남자들.
모두 호기심 넘치는 눈빛 으로
서로 반갑게 인사 를 나누는데…# 그들이 _ 이곳 에 _ 모인 _ 이유 는?

Players can create and share interactive, choose-your-own-adventure-style stories with group members by selecting options that lead to different results. “BTS Universe Story” also allows users to explore other fans’ stories and interact with other players.
This is the new BTS video game
The story creation mode of the “BTS Universe Story” app offers in-game production tools, as well as a story game mode that allows players to select options in pre-existing stories to shape the story.
The game also includes a “collection” mode, which allows players to collect clothing and accessories to design for BTS members, along with the ability to create augmented reality (AR) photos with their own custom characters. You can download the game here!
The game is developed and published by Netmarble of Korea. It is the second collaboration between Netmarble and K-pop Sensations, following last year’s mobile game ‘BTS World’, in which players take on the role of group manager.
With the release of “BTS Universe Story”, Netmarble announced a seven-day daily log event with a reward of 30 jewels (in-game currency).
In addition, players can receive various rewards, such as a logo t-shirt or a story creation theme, for creating a story that receives a certain number of “likes” from other players.
The game’s release continues into the last busy months for BTS. On Friday (Sept. 25), an all-new choreography video of BTS ‘hit’ Dynamite ‘will premiere on Epic Games’ ‘Fortnite’.
And next week, the group will present a weeklong musical addition to NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” with a different performance every night.
Last month, the “Dynamite” premiere broke YouTube records by collecting the most views in 24 hours in the platform’s history with 101.1 million (and was the most watched YouTube premiere with over 3 million simultaneous viewers). With “Dynamite”, BTS was also the first K-pop act to top the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row.
The song represents her first single in English and, according to Spotify, generated a 300% increase in the number of people who listened to her music for the first time.
BTS, operated by Korean Big Hit Entertainment, debuted in June 2013. Will you download this new game? Do you think it will be a success?
