Ready Player One Lore Explained In a Minute

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is now in theaters, and it’s awesome, just check out our review. With that being said, if you haven’t read the book, which I have not, you may want to brush up on some basic lore before heading to your screening so you’re a bit informed on the film’s overall plot.

Thanks to the LORE YouTube channel, you can now do just that in just about a minute thanks to a new animated recap of Ready Player One’s backstory. I wouldn’t even say that the lore recap contains spoilers, because it mostly sets up the film’s plot by explaining key elements from its world. It sets up the main characters and factions, as well as explaining the concept of the Oasis, which is a massive virtual world that people spend most of their time in thanks to the bleak future that Ready Player One is set in.

Head on up above to get the low down on Ready Player One’s world and characters.
