.hack//Mutation (Japanese: .hack//悪性変異 Vol.2, Hepburn: .hack//Akusei Heni, lit."Malignant Mutation") is the second entry in the set of games released on the PlayStation 2. The games are set in the "first season" of the .hack series, taking place after SIGN and ZERO. The collection of games are sometimes referred to as a Tetralogy by official sources, a Quadrilogy or by the abbreviation "IMOQ" by fans, taking the first letter in each consecutive game's western title in order (Infection, Mutation, Outbreak, Quarantine). Each game comes with a bonus DVD of the anime .hack//Liminality, which shows events occurring simultaneously offline. The games take part within the fictitious MMO of 「The World」.

Synopsis

Plot

君のPCは、ソフトウェア使用許諾に反している。

「僕は友達を助けたい!……ただそれだけなのに」ただそれだけなのに、その行動は管理者側には秩序破壊にしか映らなかった。「The World」内の根源を突き止めるために、カイトは新しい街で新しい仲間と奮闘を重ねるが、ついに管理者側の強制排除という事態に直面することに。しかし、そのとき”彼女”がその意思を見せ始める……。[1]
