The comet struck our world without warning. In its wake it left fire, plague, mutation, and something worse. Those who survived heard the Voice of a malignant God in their heads. They rallied and called themselves the Order. Those who would not answer this Voice were slaughtered, tyrannized, driven underground. After years of struggle, the tide may be turning. The Front, freedom fighters dedicated to the Orderís destruction, have amassed weapons and are preparing for open war. In this game you can barter for weapons and equipment in stores, encounter a variety of sinister enemies, engage in conversation with all characters, and accept or decline missions from various non-player characters. Become adept at dodging bullets, missiles, and more gruesome threats. Watch your character's statistics improve as the game progresses.
You can play against your friends over a modem, serial cable, or an IPX network. You can fight with, or against, up to eight people on a network, or head-to-head over a modem.
