Earth 2520 A.D.
You are Dr. Jack Mason, whose recent court martial has you reassigned from frontline field operative to mundane transport detail, with the military's hazardous materials division. Burned out and with nothing left to lose, you begin the routine transfer of a quarantined prisoner when your transport ship is shot down. You and your infected patient are stranded deep within the most vicious prison sectors of a wasteland called 'Earth'.
From the creators of Unreal comes a spiralling plunge into destruction, despair and disease. Hunted by the most vicious killing machines known and severely outnumbered with Nowhere to Turn. No one to Trust. How far will you go to survive?
