The pre-registration site also currently features a game introduction, a BTS story, and "From BTS" – a special sneak peek of the game's "mobile function" that lets players interact virtually with group members, as well as a mini-game that pairs players with the BTS member they match with best as a manager.
BTS WORLD will also reveal all-new, original soundtrack from BTS leading up to the launch, starting with a sub-unit song by Jin, Jimin, and Jung Kook of BTS.
