This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a bounty hunter battling monsters amid the swamps of Louisiana. Players form groups of hunters to hunt and kill zombie-like creatures in fast-paced combat. Characters use bladed clubs, pistols, shotguns, rifles, and explosives to kill creatures and human enemies. Combat is highlighted by close-up blood-splatter effects, gunfire, and groans/cries of pain. Some weapons cause characters to burst apart into chunks of flesh; the ground is sometimes stained with large pools of blood around corpses.
Savage, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps, and you are part of a group of rugged bounty hunters bound to rid the world of their ghastly presence. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously—and given the chance to buy more gruesome and powerful weapons. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Your experience, however, remains in your pool of hunters—called your Bloodline—always.
