After the discontinuation of the hugely popular virtual reality MMORPG “The World”, a new version of the game – The World R: 2 – launched online. On his first day in the game, newcomer Haseo thinks he has made some friends to go on a search. However, as if to mock his sentiments, they killed his character just for fun. Luckily, he is saved by a mysterious one-armed player named Ovan who offers to show him around the World. Together with Ovan and his cleric friend Shino, Haseo is enjoying a wonderful first year at the game. But this peaceful life is destroyed when Shino’s character is killed by a familiar figure known as Tri-Edge, whose victims have all fallen into comas in the real world. In anger, Haseo vows to find the elusive Tri-Edge and kill him. Taking place during Haseo’s first year in the World, .hack // Roots explores the friendship Haseo built in the game before Tri-Edge tore him apart.

The characters from previous .hack//G.U. Games and .hack//Roots receive an email from Ovan. He is requesting them to go to Hidden Forbidden Festival where is set up a mysterious summer festival. There they find an AIDA Chim Chim who wishes to peacefully co-exist with the other players of The World. It then transforms into the word “Returner”, so they assume it to mean that Ovan will return to The World.
