Synopsis

Futuristic adventure. In 2045, many people, such as young Wade Watts, spend a lot of time in the virtual reality world of the Oasis, an environment created by James Halliday, who has decided to leave his fortune, and effective control of the Oasis, to the player who can win a three-part contest within the virtual world. Success depends in large part on an understanding of how Halliday thought and what he valued, which Wade understands well. But when Wade and his friends, collectively known as the High Five, make progress towards the prize, they find themselves and their loved ones in real-world danger, as ruthless rival corporation IOI desperately tries to gain victory by any means necessary.
