The game follows the story of the manga series, starting in the Golden Age Arc and ending in the Falcon of the Millennium Empire Arc.

 

Berserk Musou is a 3D tactical-action/hack-and-slash game, set in large arenas based on various locations in the Berserk universe. Players may pick a single character to control in a large environment, where they will face hordes of demons and other monsters to slay in battle.

 

Playable characters can fill a Frenzy Mode gauge by battling, entering a period of time upon activation where they take no damage (but still receive knockback) and can do much more damage, performing bloody Obliterations. Obliterations will fill a second meter that, when full, allows characters to perform their unique Deathblow, a single large attack that deals immense damage and will refill some of its own gauge.
