Description from the packaging.

The ultimate 360 degree Deathmatch.

An experiment gone wrong caused an uncontrollable fusion reaction to rip through the Earth, leaving nothing more than a lifeless husk. Devoid of atmosphere and bathed in the searing radiation of the sun, the planet has been condemned. You are among the Forsaken few who invade the now abandoned settlements to collect what little fortune was left behind.

Advanced Particle Technology.
Falling ceilings crush you. Needle-tipped spikes spring from the wall. Webbed lightning forces a burning escape. Turbine fans suck you in... your only hope to save yourself is to blast the moving blades.

Enemies programmed for subversive behavior.
Anticipating your every move and reacting differently to every kind of weapon.

25 BF Weapons.
Flame-spewing petro-gel rifles, heat seeking camera-mounted missiles, gravity distorting warheads, floating missile platforms, subversive mines, and more.

Furious multi-player combat with up to 12 players over network, Internet, modem or serial connection.

Wickedly diverse environments.

15 Of the Universe's most cursed scavengers.
