Digimon World 4, known as Digimon World X (デジモンワールドX Dejimon Wārudo X) in Japan, is an action role-playing video game for the PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Xbox developed by BEC and published by Bandai as part of their Digimon franchise. Unlike previous games in the Digimon World series, it features action-based hack and slash gameplay and supports up to four players. The game is loosely based on the 2005 Digital Monster X-Evolution film, even using footage from the movie itself. The Gamecube version was not released in the PAL Region.
The game’s protagonists are members of the “D.S.G. (Digital Security Guard)”. Based on Digital Monster X-Evolution, it is immediately revealed that a computer virus known as the “X-virus” is spreading quickly and is infecting many Digimon. “The Yamato Server” has disappeared, and a new server known as “The Doom Server” has taken its place. They are sent to the first area of the game named Death Valley to search for Chief Leomon. When it is completed the player finds out that The Doom Server may in fact be The Yamato Server. The player is then sent to destroy the “Doom Dome”. This is where the first real boss appears, Apocalymon. The player is then sent to Dry Land to stop the X-Virus spreading and must defeat MaloMyotismon. They are then sent to the Venom Jungle to stop the Dread Note from launching and must then defeat Lucemon. They are then sent to the final area of the game Machine Pit to destroy the final boss Mecha Rogue X.
