Xenoblade Chronicles is set on Mira, a hostile planet comprising of five continents. As the game begins, players crash land on this planet where the modern city of Los Angeles is established.

The game heavily focuses on exploration and the livestream showed a couple of ways using which players can access otherwise inaccessible areas. In addition to this, the game will feature 4-player online play as well as 32-player online interaction for trading.
