The pathogen is unknown. Dr. Jack Mason en route to assess threat levels. Request cryogenic containment of infected subject ‘B': Karina J. All prisoner rights are hereby revoked under Section-4 of the Transgenic Containment Act. Evacuate non-essential personnel in preparation for possible thermonuclear containment protocol.
From the creators of Unreal comes a spiraling plunge into destruction, despair and disease. Jack Mason is a burned-out doctor with no will to live, that is, until he nearly dies in a transport crash. Now he and his infected patient are stranded deep within the most vicious prison sectors of a wasteland called ‘Earth’. In sixteen hours an orbital platform will initiate a total biohazard containment procedure: 50-megaton yield, detonated above sea level, to cleanse the contamination.
