The game is rather different to anything else on the MMOG market right now. The American Southwest is the last known area of civilisation since nuclear war and natural disasters have torn apart the world. You have to fight against mutated monsters and lawless warriors who fight to destroy everything in sight - mayhem is rife. You take part in the game as a clone, able to be reborn in a LifeNet pod after you die. After a quick tutorial which teaches you the game and combat basics you find yourself in a remote desert city with only minimal equipment to make it through.
