Tribes of brave Matoran villagers struggle to survive, placing their hopes in the arrival of legendary Toa heroes. Discover the island’s six distinct regions, brave its perils, and unlock its secrets in this all-new open-world adventure.
- Challenge the Rahi – The dark spirit Makuta has cast his shadow on Mata Nui and its inhabitants. Fearsome Rahi beasts roam the lands, their masks infected with the Makuta’s influence. You must face these formidable guardians on your quest to obtain the Kanohi masks of power and defeat the Makuta.
- Find the Power – Play as each of six Toa heroes, prophesied warriors washed ashore on the island’s beaches. Wielders of great elemental power, each Toa must collect the twelve Kanohi masks of power if they hope to challenge the Makuta. It’s up to you to help the Toa complete their quest, find the hidden masks of power, and cast aside the Makuta’s shadow. The fate of Mata Nui is in your hands.
