Sony announced Left Alive prior to the 2017 Tokyo Game Show, but has provided precious little information since the game’s announcement. The official trailer is cinematic and features a futuristic war zone and some impressive-looking robots. The game is set in the fictional city of "Nova Slava" in December 2127. Since there is Cyrillic script in the some of the artwork, it is believed that the city is located in Russia. It appears that the game will follow three characters whose, “lives are laid bare...each with their own stories...and their own paths to salvation.”

We know that the game takes place in the same universe as the Front Mission series as well. The Front Mission series was also set during the 21st and 22nd centuries and featured military conflicts. It was known for its engaging storytelling and inspired numerous manga, novels, films, and radio dramas.
