Arenas of Doom.
You'll meet your destiny in 15 huge cylindrical arenas. Each one thematically and graphically unique and progressively more challenging and terrifying than the last. These strange, spectacular and eerie environments are more like a carnival for the senses. They set the stage for you to confront your greatest fears and emerge triumphant.

  • Dead Reckoning's advanced and optimized game engine produces lighting and sound effects that are so real, you'll swear you've really been abducted.
  • The destructive power in your hands will make your fingers tremble and your body shake.
  • The artificial intelligence as as real as the terror. Your wingmen don't need you. Unless you instruct them otherwise, they will choose and implement their own attack strategy, including all aspects of the battle.

Dead Reckoning.
Artificial intelligence. Real terror.
